Gebrannte Gries Suppe

This is such an easy and delicious soup, perfect for the winter months.

You'll need:
3 tablespoons butter
3 cups of Cream of Wheat
Approximately 7 cups of water or beef broth
2-3 beef bouillon cubes (you don't need these if you use the beef broth)
Salt to taste
2-3 eggs

Melt butter in a soup pot. Add cream of wheat and stir until it becomes golden brown (toasted). When it is browned, add your beef bouillon cubes (I usually smush these up so they dissolve easier). Add your water. When it comes up to a boil, lower it to a simmer and let it cook for about 5 minutes. If it becomes too thick like a porridge, add more water. It's very easy to adjust and a forgiving soup. You do want this soup to be semi thick, but not enough where your spoon could stand on it's own in it lol. Taste and add salt if needed. Then scramble 2-3 eggs in a separate bowl and stir into the soup. You want little wisps of egg going throughout. Enjoy!
