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!

    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.
