As I was growing up my grandma Helen would often make Liver Dumpling Soup. As a kid I always turned my nose up to this soup so Grandma always made me my own batch of egg dumpling soup. Now that I'm older I have acquired the taste of my Czech/Moravian/Bohemian heritage. These are wonderful and so worth a try! I dug out an old cookbook of my mom's and I will be posting several recipes that I grew up with that are rich in my heritage!

How to Make Grandma Helen's Liver Dumpling Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Grind the beef liver and take out all of the veins. Put ground liver in a bowl and add finely cut up onion which was sautéed in the butter just until translucent. Add garlic, salt, pepper, eggs and enough cracker crumbs to form a medium dough. Drop by teaspoon full into rapidly boiling soup broth.
  2. This soup is prepared like a noodle soup only the liver dumplings are used in place of the noodles. Do not overcook! A true dumpling is never the same shape or size! The Bohemian term for dumplings is "Knedliky". Pronounced ka-ned-lick-ee.
