"PrThis is a recipe that the Germans from Russia who moved to North Dakota make.Knoephla Soup2 stalk celery, diced1 med. onion, diced2. 32 oz boxes chicken broth6 potatoes, diced2 T. chicken soup base2 Bayleaves1lb of bacon cooked1 stick butter1 pint heavy creamKnoephla Dough4 C. flour2 tsp. salt1 C. water or milk3 tsp. baking powder4 eggsCombine potatoes, onions, celery, chicken broth and soup base, cook.Mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, eggs and 1 C. water or milk to make a fairly stiff dough. Roll into ½? ropes; cut ½? into pieces and drop into boiling water for about 5-7 min remove drain and lay out to dry.Add bacon to potatoe?s celery and onions. Add Knoephla to soup while potatoes still need to cook approximately the last 3-5 min till potatoes are done .After potatoes, celery and onions, Knoephla are tender turn heat down to low and add 1stick butter and 1 pint heavy cream leave heat on low do not boil after adding cream just heat on low.I usually cook my knoephla first then cook the bacon this way they have more time in the pot with the potatoes and other stuff to soften up .Or you can make a softer dough by adding more liquid and drop in to boiling water with spoon and knife then after they are cool cut into bite size pieces.I?ve also used spaetzle dough recipe and used my spaetzle maker instead of knoephla.ovide a review on what you thought of the recipe and how you adjusted it."
"For a more flavorful knoephla (my grandmother would call it *glesse) soup... use heavy cream instead of milk, also if knoephla dough tastes doughy, the dumplings you made are too big next time try rolling into thick noodle shapes and my grandmother would sometimes add a half head of boiled cabbage, thin sliced carrots, and a pinch of nutmeg to the soup... ALSO and MOST IMPORTANT the dough in this recipe is missing its oil/fat- Add 1-2 tablespoons of your desired fat (i.e. butter, bacon grease, vegetable oil) to dough mixture as you mix it."
"The knoephla in my soup were like little bullets and I had to take them out of the soup before we could eat it. I am wondering if anyone has any idea what went wrong??"
"I have made this recipe many times and it is my favorite. My picky kids even love it, thank you for such a great recipe."
"My husband and I loved this soup. It reminds me of a cream of potato soup, but with dumplings. I can't wait to make this one again!"
