Amish Liver Dumpling Soup

Elaine Laskowski


This is for liver lovers out there. The dumplings are good sauteed in butter and cooked onions. This is how I got my children to eat liver. They are so tender, you can't resist them.

How to Make Amish Liver Dumpling Soup


  1. In a food processor put the liver, onion, parsley, water, eggs, butter, nutmeg and marjoram. Process until smooth. Add flour to make a soft dough, stiff enough to hold it's shape when dropped into the boiling broth. Drop dumplings in broth and cook 15 minutes.
  2. You can serve this as a hearty soup or drain the dumplings and serve them in sauteed butter and onions as a main dish.
  3. I am posting picture of them both ways.
