Clear Chicken Soup w/ Crackerball Dumplings
Serves 4

Ingredients
1 large egg
2 TB melted butter
6 TB fine saltine cracker crumbs (about 17 crackers)
1 TB milk
1 tsp fresh finely minced parsley
1⁄2 tsp finely minced onion
1⁄4 tsp celery salt
1⁄8 tsp black pepper
4 cups chicken broth
minced fresh thyme (optional), for garnish

Directions
In a small bowl beat the egg, then stir in the melted butter. Add all remaining ingredients, except the broth and thyme (if using) and mix well, then shape into walnut size round balls and allow to stand 30 minutes to swell a bit.

Meanwhile, bring the broth to a simmer in a medium saucepan.

When ready, drop the dumplings into the simmering chicken soup broth and cook, covered, for ten minutes (don't lift the lid!).

Serve about 1 cup of broth and three crackerball dumplings per person.

Yummy :hungry:

Did you use commercial chicken stock or homemade?
Commercial, though I should get extra points because it was organic. :laugh:

I’ve made chicken stock/broth a couple of times, just to say I’ve done it, but I usually just buy it.

Looks good. I wonder what the equivalent of saltine crackers is in the UK.
This is from some guy on the internet, so it must be accurate:

“So you can say that the UK equivalent of saltine crackers are cream crackers that are available in local grocery stores across the UK. Cream crackers are plain crackers that can be a substitute for saltine crackers, but they are less salty and denser, unlike saltine crackers.”

Saltines (aka soda crackers) are hands-down my favorite crackers. Most people go for the more gourmet stuff, but not me - give me saltines any day!
