This is very simple to make and tastes excellent over spaetzle (German noodles). I didn't have any leeks, so simply left this out. And I used chicken broth instead of water (a bit less so it was thicker on the spaetzle). This was almost exactly like the one my mother (who is 100% German) always made. Thanks!

Loved this, although I lacked some ingredients. Also added a handful of potato cubes for substance and a dash of white vinegar at the end.

My husband loved this. I thought it was way too runny and thin. If we make it again, I'll thicken the broth.

I loved it; husband didn't. I'm still giving it 5 stars. I didn't use bacon or leeks.....just regular onion and vegetarian hotdogs. ZWT6

We really liked this soup - it was lovely and substantial for a coldish summer day. Served with fresh baked bread rolls. I used chicken stock instead of water for a bit more flavour. Thank you! Made for ZWT6 Ya Ya Cookerhood.

This is a comforting soup for a cold winters eve. I used cubed ham for the lean bacon and left off the leek. No other substitutions were made. Like I said, nice and comforting. Served this with sourdough rolls.
