Potato Soup with Rivels

This was my grandmother's recipe and I am pretty certain it was passed down through the generations from Amish roots. For added flavor, chopped onions and bits of ham can be added with the potatoes and ham broth may be substituted for the water.

ingredients

directions

  • Cover the bite-sized potato cubes with cold, salted water.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat and then turn down the heat to a simmer and cook until done (about 15 minutes).
  • Pour the flour into a bowl and form a well (indentation) in the center.
  • Beat the eggs together and pour them into the flour well.
  • Pinch the flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt and egg together and the mixture will start to separate in to ‘pellets’.
  • Drop the pellets into the boiling cooked potatoes.
  • Simmer an additional 10 minutes or until the rivels (formerly known as pellets) are cooked through.
  • Add the milk to the soup and heat through (do not boil).
  • Season to taste.

    I have been looking for this recipe, my grandma used to make this for me years ago. I miss it dearly, and this is definietly very close. I added onions, (and extra rivels!!) It was great, thanks so much for posting. I really enjoyed eating this again!
