4 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1 tsp. salt
2/3 cup flour
1 tsp. sugar
½ cup boiling water
¼ tsp. or less of nutmeg (you decide how much you want)
Bring butter and water to a boil. Add flour all at once, stirring continuously. Cook until mixture leaves the sides of the pan. When cool, add all the seasonings and eggs, one at a time, beating well with a spoon. Drop by teaspoonfuls into boiling broth or soup. Dip spoon into hot liquid after dropping each dumpling so the mixture will not stick to the spoon. Do not cover. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, they are done. Serve hot. So good.
This is my favorite recipe for using turkey broth. Add all of the vegetables that you want and season it like you like, but don’t forget the garlic. You can leave the potatoes out if you want because you are going to add Danish Dumplings. Make sure that you double the recipe because you will still run out of dumplings before you run out of soup.
