Although the origins of this “soup” are from the depression era days, it’s still a popular breakfast/snack among the Amish. Since it’s ridiculously cold here in Ohio, I thought this would be the perfect warm snack, and it was. Here is the very, very simple recipe:
Amish Coffee Soup
- 1 slice bread
- 1 cup hot coffee with milk
- 1 to 2 tsp sugar
There are many variations of this recipe—you can use saltine crackers instead of bread, substitute half and half or cream for the milk, and use white or brown sugar. You can also make this in large batches.
