“This will forever be a soup that makes me think of my grandma. Rivels are kind of simple little dumplings dropped into any flavor of broth. When I asked my grandma how to make it, she said, "take some eggs and some flour, a little salt, and rivel 'em up!" We often ate this soup with bbq grilled chicken during the summer. (When I was younger we always had chicken rivels, but recently I made a stock with the ham bone from christmas, added some ham soup base, and diced up some leftover ham to add in. This also produced great results!)”
