      Thanks for posting this Dad, hadn't had it in years. Excellent. I doubled the dumplings and also (brace yourself) added an onion. Came out wonderfully. Kerrie loved it too.

      This is the Best Potato Soup. I think to make this even better, if your not worried about cholesterol is to double, triple, not quadruple the dumpling portion of the recipe!!!!! I remember growing up and having to search for the dumplings because they were always our favorites!

      Loved this soup. Tweaked it a bit...added an onion, a leek, carrots, onion powder, garlic power, and a few other random spices to taste. the leftovers were really thick (of course I forgot to mention I used organic heavy cream in place of the milk!) so I thinned it out with some organic chicken stock. Made extra dumplings for sure! Thank you. It was wonderful.
