3-4 eggs beaten and added to warm milk

I wonder if this recipe works well with just the egg whites, along with skim milk in place of whole milk.

From my mothers hand written recipe, it is delicious, we also used to call it curdled soup.
With small particles not dumplings, we could just drink it from a cup. She was Irish and also cooked Hungarian foods.

Milk Soup

3/4 Cup flour
1/8 Tsp salt
1 Egg

Slightly beat egg and salt, add flour. With fork work this into small particles (on flat paper it works good)

1-1/2 Qt. milk
1 Cup sugar

Bring to boil – add noodles above scattered in slowly. Simmer 5 min.
“Watch” the bottom of milk – don’t burn (stir)
“Watch” this don’t boil over (it’s easy to get away)

I need some help. I am not familiar with Milk soup, I am friends with an older couple of German decent, the husband has been talking about his mothers milk soup to his wife for over 65 years. He insist that the only ingredients are Milk, noodles and raisins. It would mean the world to me if I can give him this last request. Does anyone know the recipe?

milk soup

There is no one milk soup (zupa mleczna). Thta is a blanket term for hot witner soups containign milk and... it can be rice, barley,rolled ats, muillet flakes, pasta, egg-batter noodles, etc. In my family raisins were not added, but why not. Milk soups can be served salty or sweet. A pat of butter may be added to the hot soup. There is no recipe, just a rough guideline: per serving cp,bome 1.5 cups milk and 1/2 - 3/4 c of any of the abve in saucepan, add 172 t salt, bring to boil stirrign constantly, reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer 5 min.

The easiest way to make it is very easy. Just cook some noodles, warm some milk and add the cooked noodles. I would put the raisins in the milk before you warm it though others may not. Use small noodles.

Some people add salt or sugar or even cinnamon.

Google 'zupa mleczna' for pictures.

Omg I have been looking for this recipe for years. My family is from polish decent... My father would go to Poland and bring unfortunate ppl over to live and helped them get jobs and start a good life. He has even raised some of his distant younger cousins who grew up with me... A lady by the name of Cecil had made a dessert like milk soup. I believe the ones with the sugar is the one!! I'm so glad I finally found the recipe I miss this soup so much and even though I had made it when I was little I couldn't remember the recipe! Thank you for posting this I have been looking all over for her and the recipe

We have rice and milk every Christmas eve at our family Wigilla dinner for the past 80 years. This is my favorite dish at this dinner and I wait all year for this most delicious soup. Below is our family's recipe for this dish. The ingredients are in large quantities because we make it for about 50 people but you can cut their quantities in half to fit your needs for a smaller group. Enjoy...

Rice milk soup recipe:
4 cups of white rice
1 pound of butter
2 gallons of whole white milk
2 and 1/2 table spoons of salt
2 and 1/2 table spoons of sugar

Mix ingredients into large soup pot and cook on low for 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours.

Serve hot with cinnamon and or nut meg on the side to be added for extra flavor if desired.

Looking for recipe. Sounds like milk soup- with chunks of Pumpkin and small dough balls.

My father was German/Polish. When I was growing up, he made the soup with the raw grated potatoes,squeezed out all the liquid, added flour and made little chewy balls of dough that he added to hot milk. My mother and I used to ask him to make it for us. He passed away in 2001 and had a lot of small strokes so he didn't remember how to make it. I hadn't seen him make it since the late 60s, so had no clue. Thank you for these posts because it brings back memories and I will make this soup for my 97 yo mother this coming week.

My grandmother also made Kluski like you described. She would heat up the "milk soup" and scrape tiny dough pieces into it. You had to do it slow so the pieces stayed separated. Otherwise they just limped at the bottom of the pot. When they floated they were ready. She would skim them out and put them aside until all the dough was cooked. Then we would scoop them into a bowl and pour the scolding "milk soup" over it. It was delicious.

My Grandma made something similar to the milk soup she called Churka(sp)
Mix flour, egg, milk & salt with hands to make sort of loose dumplings. Drop that in boiling water for a few minutes until it thickens. Put in a bowl pour milk over and a little sugar and eat like a lumpy cream of wheat. We loved it as kids. I was just thinking I should try making it again.
