Homemade Dumplings for Soup

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Servings 2


  • 4 beaten eggs
  • 4 half egg shells filled with water
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Beat eggs and water and gradually add flour.
  • Drop small spoonfuls into boiling water until they float.
  • Remove from water.


I use my Kitchen Aid Mix Master.  You know this is a “tried & true” recipe by the fact that you use half an egg shell as a unit of measurement.  I love lots of dumplings and this is the perfect amount for Amy’s Super Quick Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup recipe.  I also made the dumpling separately from the soup.  When they float, they are done.  Then I added them to the soup and simmered with everything else.

  1. I have a really easy recipe for potato dumplings which I make everytime I make spareribs and sauerkraut. It is 1 cup mashed potatoes (can use instant) cooled, 1 egg, 1 cup flour and 1 tsp salt. Mix everything together and drop in your hot soup or spareribs. I cover them for like 10-15 min and then 10-15 min uncovered. They are so good! This recipe comes from my Great Aunts Emily and Helen. Hope you all enjoy them as much as I do. Yikes now I am hungry for them…..
