How to Make Potato Soup with Rivels


  • 1Cook raw potatoes,salt, and onions in chicken broth until tender.This should take about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • 2In a small bowl,mix together egg, and flour with a fork. These are your rivels, They should be clumpy, and there should be flour left over in the small bowl.Set aside.
  • 3Chop your crispy bacon,or ham, and cook with the potatoes until heated through.
  • 4Now stirring gently with a wooden spoon, mix in your rivels. Your soup will thicken, as you stir.
    Hint: I have also mixed in corn,green beans,and chopped carrots to make a complete meal. No one has ever left my table hungry after eating this soup. Enjoy!
