Image courtesy: How To Make Butter Soup


  • 8 cups water
  • 6 potatoes, cubed
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • salt to taste
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream


Quarter the onion and separate the layers.

Boil 8 cups water with the potato, onion, butter, bay leaf, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.

When the potatoes are done, mix the flour, eggs, and about 1 teaspoon salt in a separate bowl. Add water until it is a thick dough.

Spoon or cut noodles into soup–I tilt the bowl over the soup and use a butter knife to cut strips as it pours.

After noodles are fluffy, pour in the cream. Heat and serve. This soup is even better the next day!
