I am posting this because I am making some today, and it is DIVINE... well, at least I think so!
Its an old family recipe...and we dont really measure things in our family, so forgive my directions as they are not specific! You can adjust the recipe according to how much you want to make... let you pot be your guide!
Also, I make globbers with mine... kind of like a german pasta (spatzle). They can be omiited if you like, but they are yummy!
In addition, you can make this as thick or as thin as you please... it is very versatile!
Oh! And this is NOT a low calorie health food. This is pure indulgence! Startchy, salty and fattening! LOL!
Ok, here it is!
4-5 large potatos peeled & cut into chunks (or enough to almost fill your pot size of choice)
1 large onion (white or yellow) diced
Evaporated milk (1-2 cans, depending on amount you are making)
eggs (1-2, again size dependant)
salt and pepper
Put potatos and onions in pot, with just enough water to cover and allow taters to float freely.
Add salt and pepper to taste (remember that potatos absorb salt, so you will need more than you think!)
Boil until potatos are tender, but not too mushy!
DO NOT DRAIN!!! This is your stock!
Add Evap milk, stir, check salt content (you should do this frequently to avoid under/over salting) and bring back to a boil. Lower heat and keep and a nice simmer...be sure to stir often as it will stick if left unattended.
Start with appx. 1 cup flour. Add 1 egg and stir. Add some salt and pepper to taste. The mixture will be very gooey feeling, and quite sticky. Thats Ok! you can add more flour and eggs of you like, its seriously up to you. You really cannot go wrong with these!
Once you have desired amount/consistency, drop "globs" of dough into the soup using spoon or just your hands...keep it about a teasponful or so.. I always just do a variety of glob sizes... the globbers will quickly float to the top. Keep stirring as soup simmers and globbers cook. On average, they take about 20 minutes to cook all the way through. I just also sample em to make sure they are done!
VOILA!! Shut it off and let it cool for a bit...
Then serve! Either by itself, which is wonderful, or you can garnish it with whatever you please!
