Another favorite from my German mother - Eierstich. She would put this into home-made chicken soup. In researching Pennsylvania Dutch cuisine, I found a recipe for "Egg Custard for Soup". Checked some German websites to see how this old-time recipe compared to modern ones and I found this super simple way of cooking the custard. Good old zip bags are good for so many things! This garnish is traditionally added to any type of clear soup.
