My mother makes a unique potato soup that she and I adore. Every year I must make this soup at least twice.... once in the fall and once in the winter. We both love it with buttered toast but my mom also loves it cold. I would rather reheat mine!
It's easy to make. You need
2-3 baking potatoes peeled and cubed
1 medium onion chopped
6 c whole milk
1 c flour
Place the potatoes and onions in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook until vegetables are tender. Drain the water, add the milk. Bring to a boil again. While milk is heating, combine the flour and eggs. You will get a sticky dough. Drop teaspoonfuls of dough into the hot milk, repeating until all the dough is used. Cook until dumplings are cooked through. Before serving, salt and pepper generously.
Found out that my Grandmother Holt made it this way but we are not sure if it was any farther back. My Grandmother Holt used to make it when her kids were sick. It was a comfort food for all of us!
