This is my husband’s all time favorite. It is a Pennsylvania Dutch treat that his mother showed me how to make and his eyes light up every time I make it. The ham, onion and potatoes create a union a pure joy and one happy man!

My recipe is very similar except that we always use a ham bone with a good deal of meat left and that the dumplings are made with milk and cut into strips rather than squares.
I've sometimes varied it by adding carrots or using a stew hen instead of a ham bone.
- 3 cups white onions
- 3 cups cubed ham
- 6 cups ham stock or 6 cups chicken broth
- 4 cups flour
- 4 tablespoons shortening
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup ice water
