Cook above ingredients in 2 cups of water. Cover the pot and cook until potatoes are easily pierced with tip of knife. Add uncooked rivels (recipe below) slowly, adding water if necessary, stirring constantly, approximately five minutes until tender. Add 1-1/2 quarts of whole milk and 1/4 pound of crisp bacon,
plus 5 tablespoons of bacon grease. Add one-cup dry milk powder (or 1 cup evaporated milk) and simmer until flavors are well blended.
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 large egg
3/4 tsp salt
Beat egg and salt with fork in medium bowl. Add flour all at once and beat until small pebbles form. Use your fingers to break apart if necessary. If you have flour that did not incorporate into the egg, then just add it with the rivels as it will help thicken the soup.
