#3462 - Brussels Sprouts Soup

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 onion (chopped)
1 red potato (washed, peeled and cubed)
2 TBSP butter
1lb. fresh or frozen brussels sprouts (thawed and drained)
3 cups chicken broth
salt and pepper (to your taste)
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup heavy cream
chopped or flaked parsley (to your taste)
fresh grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
salad croutons

In a saucepan over medium heat add butter--melt. Add chopped onions--cook/stir until tender. Add chicken broth, brussels sprouts, salt, parsley and pepper--cook/stir until boiling. Once boiling, turn heat back to simmer and simmer for 15 minutes or until brussels sprouts are very tender. Remove from heat--scoop some of the mixture into a blender and beat until smooth. Repeat with remaining soup until all soup is smooth, then return soup to the saucepan. Put the saucepan back over medium heat. In a bowl add egg yolk and heavy cream--beat until mixed. While stirring, add the egg mixture to the hot soup mixture. Cook/stir until mixture thickens and is hot. When serving, top with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and croutons (if you wish).
