German Potato Soup


German Potato Soup
This is one of my favorite soups.  My mom and I discovered it at a youth activity when I was in high school.  Luckily, we were smart enough to ask for the recipe and it's a good thing too.  This soup is one of my main winter staples. 

4 strips of bacon, diced
1/4 c. chopped onions
1 c. chopped celery
3 lrg. potatoes thinly sliced
1 c. sour cream
2 Tbsp. flour
4 c. chicken bullion
2 egg yolks beaten
1 Tbsp. fresh or dried parsley

In a large pot saute bacon for 5 minutes.  Add chopped celery and onion and cook for an additional 5 minutes.  Add flour to bacon and vegetables and stir together.  Slowly add chicken bullion, stir constantly.  Then, add the sliced potatoes, cover, and let everything simmer for 1 hour.  Once the soup has simmered for one hour combine the egg yolk and sour cream to the soup.  Simmer for 10 more minutes then use a potato masher to mash larger chunks of potato and combine all of the ingredients.  Then serve.
