This recipe is so much fun to play with! I didn't measure anything. I beat an egg with a little salt then added flour until it was a thick batter. Meanwhile I had just a bit of water boiling into which I threw in some tiny bits of leftover ham a little diced onion fresh ground pepper garlic powder parsley and cumin (for the heck of it). Once the onion was tender I put the batter in there. I just dip a bit out with the tip of a spoon then use another spoon to push it off into the boiling broth. The lumps about double in size so only use a very small amount of batter for each lump. Once the lumps were pretty much done I lowered the heat and added some milk real butter and shredded cheddar cheese. I wish I had a bit of veggies to throw in for color but it tasted very good all the same. I gave this recipe four stars but my additions made it five stars.:-) Use your imagination with this recipe!

I put the lumps in some onion soup - they tasted great kind of like Matzo Balls. Read More

This was quite an adventurous recipe for me...But it worked and the family loved it. I Substituted half the milk (Mind you I adjusted the recipe for 6 servings...) with a can of CampbellsCream of chicken (8 oz.) because I didn't want the soup to be too thin. I also chopped up some green onions and tossed them in 5 minutes before I was done and it turned out nice. With or without noodles it's still pretty good but my choice of noodles would either be medium shells or egg noodles. Read More

Not a bad start to a potentially delicious spaetzle soup... I drop these "lumps" into a boiling vat of chicken stock potatoes carrots onion and celery for a more flavorful version of this recipe. Read More

As is I wouldn't make this again. I can see how this might be some comfort food you were raised on that your nana made for you when you were sick but as a soup to eat.. umm no.. it's salted milk. The dumplings were fine but this would need things like veggies meat and spices etc... bottom line.. this is a base that will need things added... Read More
