    HotPepperRosemaryJelly's Note:

    Here in North Dakota we love Knoephla Soup! I was introduced to it by my DH and loved it ever since! We have a place called Kroll's Diner run by two older Norwegian ladies! They make it the best I have ever had! The are famous for saying "SIT DOWN AND EAT!" And we do! :)

      I hate to leave a bad review but I simple don't agree with this recipe being great. I'm from ND and lived here all my life. Hubby and I have German ancestry and I myself have German form Russian ancestry, but honestly Kroll's makes the worst Knoepla soup I have ever had. It was a cup or barley warm water with 3 dumplings and 4 potatoes chuncks with a splash of chicken broth and black pepper. Most of the people I know agree Kroll's makes the worst soup. Not only that, the Kroll ladies are from ND and regardless of their own heritage they are protraying GERMAN LADIES ! NOT NORWEGIAN!. Knoephla soup translates to potato dumpling soup ("Kartoffelknodelsuppe" according to my german language cookbook). As for this recipe I don't like it. Too much of a watery/broth soup and not enough creaminess. Personally, I would omit the bay leaves, reduce the water by half and double the amount of cream and half the amount of knoephla dough and just make the dough and using a spoon and table knife scoop up the dough and then with the knife cut off some amounts and drop straight into the soup (helps to thicken it) bring (soup not water) to a boil to cook the dumplings then simmer for 4hrs and serve. As for the garlic...personal call on that but most don't call for it. I was looking for to see how many recipes state to add ham to this soup as I have only seen one recipe with it added and all the rest don't. I will stick to my recipe that is a combo of the german cookbook, my hubby's family recipe and my family recipe. Thanks for sharing.

      I just spent weeks in North Dakota and this was the best take away. I was out of sour cream so used Kraft Cooking cream cheese, and it was perfect. Also added chicken like Krolls. Thanks for posting.

      I am born and raised North Dakotan and Krolls diner has one of the best Knoephla soups besides my mothers. This one is pretty good, i just go by my own taste buds and add little more chicken boubillion, evaporated milk and pepper. Do what your taste buds enjoy, great recipe!
