Dutch Meatball Soup

Although my married name has put me in cognito,
I am from 100%
Dutch heritage.

Growing up Sundays always meant
going to church twice,
baked goodies and coffee right after morning service,
and soup and buns for a mid-afternoon lunch.

Mom always made the soup Saturday night
in an effort to keep Sunday as a day of rest -
as much as possible anyway.

When I moved so far away that I couldn't come over for Mom's Sunday soup anymore,
my sister wrote her version of Sunday Soup out
for me.  I've been making it ever since.

It works for late Saturday night suppers too :)

Happy Sunday!


  1. HI, thanks for stopping over!

    This looks fabulous! I'm adding it to our food repertoire!! We LOVE to cook here!

    So nice to meet you!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Thanks so much for linking up! I will have to make this recipe. My husband lived in Holland for two years for an ecclesiastical service mission. So now we are teaching our daughter dutch and this would be another fun way to bring in the culture!


  3. Hello! I'm not Dutch but I am 100% of Mexican heritage. My mom also makes this soup. A little different of course but it looks similar. I grew up eating it and I so wish I had a recipe but "Mexican cooks" don't use recipes. I don't know how to make it but seeing your post makes me want to figure it out. Thanks for following my blog and now I am a follower of your lovely blog. I'll be back.

  4. yummm! I don't make soup nearly enough but I LOVE seeing everybody's version of our beloved 'Dutch Soup'. always different; always delicious! Enjoy your soup today!

  5. Oh that soup looks good! I'll have to add that to next weeks dinner schedule. BTW, thanks for stopping by Beautiful Nest and commenting on my twiggy wreath.

  6. Maggie boullion you use chicken or beef flavour?

  7. Maggie boullion cubes are beef flavour... at least in the style of this I grew up with! That was the only 'packaged' ingredient my parents used when making it (except for the Maggie liquid seasoning). Mom and Dad dehydrate veggies all summer (carrots, leeks, celery and whatever else they have that could work) and create their own "soup mix" of the dried veggies that goes into the pot all winter long. Sometimes instead of the meatballs, they'll cook down a "soup bone" from the butcher and use that beef stock and meat in the soup instead. Great memories, along with the home made rolls!

  8. I havе bеen invited, and the buѕіnеѕs real isѕue iѕ, is
    theгe a гank order thеre? If yоur cгedit is
    an advantage, aѕ they hаve been buying and selling
    is аll about delivering efficiency to the wοгκplace etiquette discussion.
    Intеrnet maгkеting isn't just a parts supplier, they are quite simply shocking. Once you have gotten this far, may I suggest you go on a diet, work out how much it will cost you per month.
