“This recipe is truly a family favorite. I don't know any one else that makes this. I think my father-in-law invented it. When people had little money they used whatever was at hand. My father used to say 'one will never starve if they have potatoes, onions, and a loaf of bread.' This is a typical peasant recipe that was made when times were not as affluent as they are today. Really good on a cold snowy day.”

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Saute onions until translucent. To the onions add water, potatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are tender but still firm.
  2. Remove from heat and gently crack eggs into soup; be careful not to break eggs. Place on low heat until whites of eggs are cooked. Cool slightly before serving.

I was a little uncertain about the ingredients at first but the soup turned out very tasty. I did add 2 beef boullion cubes for some additional flavor and also reduced the olive oil to 2 T. Next time, I'd probably only use 1 T and about half the amount of water so there's not quite so much broth.

WOW! I can not say enough about this soup. It is easy, low cost, and is delicious. My kids call it breakfast soup. I used part chicken broth and part water since I had some leftover and a bit of diced ham. However I did make it again following the recipe and it is still amazing. Don't be afraid of the poached eggs. It is well worth it.

This soup is very good and easy to make! It tasts similar to traditional potato soup, and the poached eggs add a nice touch! When I make this recipe it makes about 3 servings, depending on what size potatos you use.
