Beer Soup

Since the last recipe wasn’t a hit for some mysterious reason. Creamy + Liver + Ball seemed to strike a discordant note with some–we will go to Wisconsin now for a recipe! Now this one I am sure will be a hit because I keep hearing on the radio that no football party is complete without beer. Of course, the combination of beer + soup = Denise won’t eat it. Oh well, what’s a retro cook to do when it comes to recipes from a region?

Beer Soup

1 pint beer
1 cup water
2 eggs, separated
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon flour
salt and sugar

Add water to beer, let come to boiling point, season with salt, sugar, and nutmeg, if desired. Beat yolks well with a little sugar and flour mixed. Add milk. Stir until smooth. Stir all together in the hot beer mixtur, let come nearly to boiling point, fold in beaten whites, and serve at once with toasted bread cubes.
