About this recipe: A traditional German soup, which is sure to keep you warm over winter. Bacon is simmered with potatoes and homemade pasta dumplings. Serve with fresh crusty bread, if desired.
Tasty, but the dough for the noodles needs less water. Start with half as much and work your way up from there. - 11 Aug 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

This is a variation of my german great grandmother's soup. While tasty, I still prefer the family version I grew up with. Instead of bacon (and the grease) we use real butter to taste and we also add celery to the soup. The spaetzle or dumpling dough we make just calls for egg and flour. I didn't add the water the recipe called for as other reviewers had mentioned problems with the dough being too runny. Thank you for sharing, I enjoyed trying this recipe - 21 Sep 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
