While I was growing up, my mom would make this traditional German soup. It tasted so good on chilly fall days. Knoephla (pronounce nip-fla) Soup is still a warm and comforting meal for my family.

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!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 29, 2011

It wasn't quite like my grandmother made it, but my kids still liked it. I had a couple tablespoons of bacon grease and crumpled up about 6 pieces of bacon to add some flavor. It was still a little to bland so I threw in some extra salt and a bit of pepper; next time I'll cut back on the butter.
