Liver Dumplings

angie eisert


My German mother taught me this recipe.

Even people who hate liver will like this. My husband and daughter hate liver, but beg me to make this often. My daughters fiance tried this for the first time a couple of months ago and loved it. He still doesn't know it has liver in it!!

Bring to a boil a large pot of water.

You will need to make several batches. Do not boil all of the dumpling mixture at once.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls into salted boiling water. Cook for 15 minutes. Check one dumpling to be sure it is no longer pink in the middle.
