German Cream of Wheat Dumpling Soup German Cream of Wheat Dumpling Soup
Number of Servings: 8


    1 Stick Margarine, 8 tbsp
    2 cups Quaker Cream of Wheat, 2.5 Minute
    1 tbsp Nutmeg, ground
    4 large Eggs
    4 cubes Chicken bouillon
    4 Quarts Water


Add chicken bouillon to water in large stock pot. Heat to rolling boil.

NOTE: 2.5 minute cream of wheat works best.

In separate bowl, beat eggs with fork, add butter, cream of wheat, nutmeg and mix until creamy. The mixture will harden as it rests. Let sit and rest 10 minutes.

Scoop cream of wheat mixture into teaspoon or tablespoon dumplings and drop into boiling broth. Stir dumplings to avoid having them stick to bottom of pan (dumplings should float in broth).

Cook 20 minutes or longer. If too much cream of wheat is used, the dumplings will be hard but will soften when cooked longer.

Number of Servings: 8

    What is the real name of this soup? My ex was born in Germany, moved to the states when he was very little , He used to call it "grease knuckle soup" because that's how he pronounced it when he was little, he said the real name sounded that way. I would love to know so I can share it with our son - 11/3/10
