  1. In a large saucepan over medium high heat, saute the bacon for about 7 minutes, or until lightly browned. Reduce heat to medium, add the butter or margarine and onions and saute for about 5 minutes, or until onions are tender. Add the flour and stir well for one minute.
  2. Remove saucepan from heat and gradually add the water, stirring well. Return to stovetop, raising heat to high. Add the bouillon and potatoes, bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low. Simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the egg yolks and the sour cream and mix together. Gradually add this mixture to the soup, stirring well. Heat through, but do not boil. Stir in the parsley just before serving.

I substituted chicken broth for the water, omitted the bouillon cube, and added a pinch of cayenne pepper and this was delicious. A great quick meal on a cold night.

GOod, nice flavor. I used 3 onions and 5 potatoes. The recipe calls for perhaps a bit too many onions. Next time I make it I will use 2 or less onions. And use a big pot! Taste overall is v...

I LOVED this soup! Husband - who isn't a big potato fan - thought that it was pretty good. The only changes I made were to use canned chickie broth instead of water, and I didn't bother with the...

This was an instant hit with the entire family. We all loved it. Even better with a handful of grated cheese sprinkled over each serving.

Potatoes def need more than 10 minutes to cook. Otherwise good recipe!

I discovered this recipe about 2 years ago when my husband had oral surgery and could not eat solid foods. I was looking for something really hearty and satisfying and this really delivered. I...

Rich and creamy but I added a cup of shredded cheese to the recipe! Fantastic.
