Potato Soup with Meat Dumplings

Recipe by Lorac

What's for dinner? Souper Soup! I hate to confess this, but I love dipping fresh crusty rye bread in this soup.

Wonderful, wonderful!! This is not your average "cream of potato" soup. This is a hearty, meaty, one-dish meal! I didn't have ground pork, so I used ground beef, and it was great. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. One suggestion I would make, Lorac, would be to give a quantity in cups or number for the potatoes. I had a hard time gauging how many potatoes made 2 lbs. I used too many and had to add more broth. Not a loss, though, since we had more soup then!!
