G. Grandmas Potato Soup step by step
- Here we go. Read the WHOLE recipe and gather your ingredients..
- Peel and cut potatoes into 1/2” cubes.
- Put in big pot and just cover with water. Cook until partially tender..
- While potatoes are cooking Chop onions and ham steak. And sauté in separate pan until onions are translucent. Set aside..
- When potatoes are semi-done add milk. You add 1/2 as much milk as there is water. It loooooooks like a lot. And it is..
- Add salt and pepper. Lots. Really. You will probably need to add more later too..
- Add cooked onions and ham. Bring to low boil..
- While waiting for it to boil make rivlets aka dumplings. The soup is not the same without them so don’t skip this step..
- Make rivlets by whisking 2 eggs together and then adding flour. So start with 100 grams and then keeping adding flour until the mixture comes together. It’s not too wet or too dry. I know those are awful directions but that’s what we do. As a rule it’s 100 grams of flour per egg but use your best judgement. I don’t really think you can screw them up..
- Once the soup is boiling add rivlets by using the two teaspoon method. Put some dough on a teaspoon and slide it off into the soup with the other teaspoon. Not too big. They should be about the size of a big marble..
- Cook for about ten minutes until the rivlets are cooked through. The soup should start getting thicker now because the rivlets start absorbing the broth..
- Taste and add salt and pepper if needed. It should have a bit of peppery flavor..
- If you want the soup thicker then thicken with a flour slurry..
- We add cheese and scallions on the top of the bowl when eating..
- Good luck and tell me how it goes. Remember be happy while your cooking and it’ll make your food taste better..
Easy Additions to Grandma's Potato Soup – In the botton of a large heavy bottomed pot, fry the bacon until it's very crisp. Remove to some paper towel and drain of most of the bacon grease. Reserve the grease to add smal amounts back if needed during the next step. Grandma's secret: To make this a filling meal, Grandma usually served this soup with fresh bread. For a slightly different twist, serve it in individual bread bowls.
