  1. Quarter the onion and separate the layers.
  2. Boil 8 cups water with the potato, onion, butter, bay leaf, parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. When the potatoes are done, mix the flour, eggs, and about 1 teaspoon salt in a separate bowl. Add water until it is a thick dough.
  4. Spoon or cut noodles into soup--I tilt the bowl over the soup and use a butter knife to cut strips as it pours.
  5. After noodles are fluffy, pour in the cream. Heat and serve. This soup is even better the next day!

Overall I thought that the soup had no taste and was not really appealing. I put it through the blender and added a few spices and herbs in order to make it more interesting.

omg i was looking for this recipe this is exactly what my husbands mother used to make great as is could use less flour as noodles will thicken it more salt and water milk ratio should be 50/50

this is a great recipe that my Oma used to make as well. My kids LOVE it. You do have to make sure you add enough salt. I often add garlic salt. You also have to add enough butter. I add ab...

This is very similar to my grandmother's potato soup and dough balls. To have the perfect dumplings, after scooping dough in the pot, cook 10 minutes uncovered and then 10 minutes covered. And...

I love this soup. Crumble bacon on each serving for added flavor.

Like any potatoe soup you need enough salt to give good flavor. My kids ( toddlers) loved it - none of that green or orange stuff to be suspicious about. Nice to make something that didn't req...
