This Soup takes me back to my child hood. Simpler times, family and amazing memories. I guess the older I get the more I get to reminiscing...I love the simplicity of this soup.

How to Make Griess Nockerl Suppe


  1. Beat eggs and melted butter, stir in semolina, season with salt & pepper & nutmeg to taste. I like to use fresh grated nutmeg & fresh grated pepper corns. Mix well and let stand for 10 minutes.
  2. With the help of a soup spoon form small ovals and drop them in the boiling veggie broth. As the Nockerl will expand do not put to many of them in at I did before and ended up with a "loaf" of Nockerl):
  3. Boil for 10 to 15 minutes or until the Nockerl rise to the top.
    Serve with a bit of green on top!
