  1. Place the potatoes, onion, margarine and bouillon cube into a soup pot, and fill with enough water to cover the potatoes by 1 to 2 inches. Bring to a boil, and cook for 30 minutes, until potatoes are falling apart. You can smash them up a little if you prefer the texture. Drizzle the beaten eggs into the pot, while stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir for about 2 minutes, until the eggs are completely cooked in long strands.

I'm giving this a 5 all the way due to the addition of potato and onion. I read the other reviews and tasted it with one cube and it was okay but I did think it needed more BUT, I like the salt....

5 stars! I added some cubed carrots for an extra taste. Awesome!

Wonderful recipe. As others stated I added more bouillon to kick up the flavor, but a very nice recipe and quick. Thank you.

This is about how I make potato soup. Only of course there's milk, salt, pepper, garlic a little corn too. Adds protein to an otherwise starchy dinner.

I really liked this. I also agree with how easy it is to make, how inexpensive it is as well as how filling.
