  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper

for soup:

  • chicken stock (I made mine by boiling 2 chicken carcasses from the Polish market in water)
  • chicken meat (in this case, just the meat I removed from the bones after simmering for a couple of hours)
  • vegetables (I used a prepared packet of soup veg: 4 carrots, 2 parsnips, 1 leek, 1 slice celery root)
  • 1 bag of frozen spinach (my frozen spinach turned out to be pureed, I should have purchased fresh)
  • meatballs
  • 1/2 cup orzo (optional)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten

Instructions

for meatballs:

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Combine all ingredients
  3. Form into small meatballs, less than 1 inch in diameter
  4. Bake until lightly brown, about 20 minutes.

for soup:

  1. While the meatballs are baking, simmer stock with chicken and soup vegetables, until veg are tender.
  2. Add meatballs and spinach, simmer another 15 – 20 minutes. I sometimes add orzo at this point.
  3. Slowly add egg while stirring the soup. You’re ready to serve.
