3 c chicken broth

1/2 c shallots

3/4 c chicken

1/4 Tbsp pepper

1/4 tsp garlic powder

2 eggs

1 dash(es) soy sauce

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp corn oil

1 pinch flour


1. Combine all the ingredients except the eggs and flour. Bring to a rapid boil.

2. once boiling, add the flour and stir with a fork or wisk. Make sure the flour blends.

3. Let it boil while you prepare the eggs. Take your 2 eggs and put in a bowl and mix gently. Do not wisk or beat. Just blend it.

4. Once your eggs are blended, remove the soup from the stove. Take a fork and pour the egg through the fork into the soup a little at a time. It took me 4 pours to add all the egg. After each pour stir the soup with the fork to kind of break up the egg, not vigorously, just enough to see strands of egg. Do this until the eggs all the eggs are poured into the soup. Serve hot.

Posted by: Lonny  :  Category: Breads


Cinnamon Roll Pulls

1 unsliced round loaf sourdough bread

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp cinnamon

1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 Tbsp milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make Vanilla Honey Butter: Whip butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar together until smooth; stir in honey and vanilla. Set aside. (You can use regular butter if desired)

Cut the bread lengthwise into 1/2″ slices, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread vanilla honey butter in between slices. Rotate the bread 90 degrees and slice the bread again into 1/2″ pieces, without cutting through the bottom crust. Spread more vanilla honey butter in between new cuts. This doesn’t need to be perfect – just make sure there is lots of butter in between all the cuts. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Generously sprinkle in between all cuts. (You may have extra butter and cinnamon sugar. It will just depend on how large your bread loaf is.)

Wrap in foil; place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until bread is warm. Unwrap cinnamon bread and place on serving platter. Combine powdered sugar and milk – adding milk until you get the consistency desired. Drizzle icing over bread and serve immediately.
