Ham Dumpling Soup

My mom loves this soup. For my dad I add cabbage and use the small dumplings with the clear broth.
My family doesn't like onions and celery chopped. I used it for flavor, but you can add it chopped if you choose.

I was not sure how ham and dumplings would pair, so I just had to try this one... to satisfy my curiosity if nothing else!  Turns out that the flavors are wonderful and I would gladly serve this to my most favorite guests.

To prepare this soup I used a ham bone that I had frozen from a HoneyBaked Ham. Worked like a charm; I could taste all of those flavors coming through in the soup. De-lish.

How to Make Ham Dumpling Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Place first 8 ingredients in large pot. Bring to boil then let simmer over medium-low heat for 45 minutes.
  2. While the soup is simmering make dumplings.
  3. Mix eggs and flour and water with a fork. Let sit covered for 1 hour.
  4. After soup simmered for 45 minutes remove celery stalks and onion and throw away.
  5. Remove ham bone and any ham from the bone and add that to the soup.
  6. After hour roll out dumplings on a lightly floured board to about 1/8" thickness.
  7. Cut into 1" squares and slowly add to boiling soup. Let cook for 5-7 minutes depending on size and thickness.
  8. This should turn the broth from a clear liquid to a thicker stew like broth.
  9. If you do not want a thick broth. Instead of rolling out the dumplings, place on a cutting board.
  10. Cut small pieces about the size of a penny and put into the boiling broth. Or put the dough through a potato ricer. When dumplings float they are done.
  11. You want the pieces to be small or they will be too heavy or doughy.
  12. Salt and pepper to taste.
