Southern Green Bean Dumpling Soup

My son & daughter-in-law raved about this German soup but it just didn't sound like something I would like. One evening my little granddaughter asked my husband and I to stay for dinner and we accepted without knowing what was cooking. Needeless to say, we had our first taste of the infamous Greenbean Dumpling Soup ....and fell in love with it! I prefer my dumplings more like spaetzle than the regular biscuit type-dumplings. Also, either French-cut or regular green beans can be used. I do not use the roue - I thicken in the soup liquid. Be aware that it does make a lot, so adjustments for serving size may be needed.

    I was nervous when I made this soup, I did not think family would care for it, but everyone loved it, including me. I used less bouillon cubes and less cream. I also cooked the bacon before adding. Delicious, I will definitely be making again.
