This is a recipe I got off of a TV show starring Jeff Smith.
So, while I can't claim it as totally my own, it is a superb soup that is a total meal in itself.And, is very good on a day when the men have been out chopping wood, or outside getting ready for winter.It will fill you up, and leave you with a satified full feeling.And, everyone will leave the table feeling replete.

How to Make Potato Soup with Rivels


  1. Cook raw potatoes,salt, and onions in chicken broth until tender.This should take about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. In 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.
  3. Chop your crispy bacon,or ham, and cook with the potatoes until heated through.
  4. Now 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!
