German Potato Soup Recipe

German potato salad is the inspiration for this recipe. I love the smell of it simmering on a cool winter day.—Carolyn Ringer, North Little Rock, Arkansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 1-1/4 hours YIELD:6 servings


  • 6 cups cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1-1/4 cups sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 5 cups water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • Butter
  • Minced fresh parsley
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour


  • 1. In a Dutch oven, combine the first six ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour or until vegetables are tender.
  • 2. With a potato masher, puree most of the vegetables. For dumplings, combine the egg, water, salt and flour until smooth and stiff. Drop by teaspoonfuls into the boiling soup.
