1 slice bacon
1 tbsp olive oil (or whatever is necessary)
1 cup chopped onions
1 cup chopped celery
8 med sized white potatoes
8 cups water
1 can non-fat evaporated milk
fresh dill for garnish
2 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 to 3/4 cup flour (see cooking instructions)
water (see cooking instructions)
2. Put in 8 cups of water, add peeled/halved/sliced potatoes, cook on med-high until boiling.
3. While pot is coming to boil, carefully break eggs open into a small mixing bowl. Break yolks. Taking one half egg shell fill it with water and add 4 half shells of water to eggs. Add salt. then flour slowly, mixing to create dumpling batter. Only add enough flour to get a batter that is thick but not stiff, mixing with a fork works best.

5. Add evaporated milk, stir it in and let it warm.
6. Serve with sprinkle of dill on top.

I think I might use chicken broth to replace the water - 11/8/07

I quite often leave off the bacon and use low-fat chicken broth instead of the water. I really prefer it that way. Hope you enjoy the soup also.
