well, thanks, I'm a very simple and limited cook where W V, T-Dragon and several others here are so broad in their varieties of dishes - - - they are very motivational as well - - - my excuse is "I need to get a life or learn how to fight boredom another way" :bow: :salut:

Thanks ladies and gents!
Sorry for the late response, couldn't reply from the road today, too many stops.
Outlaw, that's Jibberish, you hold on to that Apron buddy. And Emm, you aren't simple by any means. I think everyone on here gains alot from each other. I won't even attempt some of the cooks I see on here, too complex for me.Im trying to keep what hair I still have lol.

Remember, this is for a LARGE batch of soup. You might want to cut this in half ↓↓↓

As for the recipe, this is nothing set in stone, so you can alter it anyways you like. We despise chalky or dry meatballs in any form, so with 5 lbs of 85/15 Chuck, we mixed in ( 5 ) eggs 3 cups of seasoned bread crumbs, 2.5 cups of Whole Milk , 1 TB Black Pepper, 2 TB Sea Salt, 1& 1/2 cups Beef Broth,1 cup finely chopped Italian Parsley, 3 TB Italian Seasoning, 2.5 cups Finely Grated Parmesan Cheese, 2 TB Minced Garlic, 1/4 Cup of Fresh Rosemary, 2 TB of both Sage & Tyme, 1/4 Cup Red Pepper Flakes, 1/4 Cup SYM and a pinch of Nutmeg Powder.

Mixed it up well and sit down for the meatball rolling marathon, grrr. We did them a little smaller than a quarter in diameter.


For the soup,
Then winged it with the veggies, about 9 Cellery Stalks diced, 2 Yellow Onions diced, small bag of Carrots diced, 2 TB of Minced Garlic, 1/2 lb of Ham, diced up. 1/2 lb of Prosciutto diced, then sauteed everything above But the meatballs in Evoo for about 10 minutes.
Added about 18 cups of Chicken Broth to the veggies, bring to a slow boil, turn heat down to simmer and add Meatballs.
In about 8-10 minutes, they should float. Now add ur Spinach, whole leaves, not chopped. I used 4 cups , they wilted down just fine within minutes.
Last step is to get your ( creamy ) part of this soup by mixing 5 or 6 eggs with about 2 cups of Finely Grated Parmesan in a ( separate ) bowl. Whisk well.

When soup begins to cool slightly, slowly introduce the mixture to the soup and continually whisk till it's all evenly distributed.
I've only see this done once before, this was a first for us .

We love it, hopefully you all do too if u give it a shot.

I appreciate being mentioned here, thank you! I only hope I could inspire others by showing what a little patience and dedication can achieve. I've been inspired myself by so many on this board; I don't view myself as anything more than a decent contributor.

I discovered that I found peace in bbq. As frustrating as it is. Lol!
Being a combat vet, cooking has helped me through many tough times. I decided to branch out to other areas to see where it may lead me.

Sailor,
Thank you for that:)

You and I are sharing alot, I mean ALOT of the same weather, so I'm not surprised u and PB are in the ( soup ) mode too..

I'm thinking about perfecting a way to box and ship some of our snow and use Amazon's High Speed Drone Delivery Service to do an air drop to these ( Texan ) friends of ours :):)
Well send some to New Zealand too :):)
Well give our new found Canadian friend a pass tho, he gets his share already lol.

I was always told to ( Share ) :):):)

You in ?? Lol
