About the Recipe
4 Tbsp. Butter or margarine
1/2 cup Boiling water
2/3 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
¼ tsp. Nutmeg
Bring butter and water to a boil.
Mix all dry ingredients together,
When butter is melted and water is hot add flour and seasonings all at once
Cook until mixture leaves the sides of the pan.
When cool, add the eggs, ONE at a time, mixing well with a spoon (wooden is preferred) until they are all incorporated.
Dip a tablespoon into the hot soup so that the mixture won’t stick to the spoon and then scoop up a tablespoon full and drop into boiling broth or soup.
Do not cover. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes - they are done. Serve hot. So good!
