Ingredients:  
1 egg, beaten
1/2 to 1 cup of flour
1 tsp. salt

Directions:
Directions:
In a bowl, mix one egg with a fork. Add one tsp. of salt. Slowly add flour (start with 1/2 cup flour). Mix flour into the egg mixture. Add more flour as needed so that the consistency is about that of a thick cake batter.but just a bit thicker. When the dumpling mixture is ready, it should just barely fall off the spoon. That's the best way I can describe it. Just be careful not to put too much flour into the mixture or the dumplings will be really dry and not very good..

Drop the dumplings, by spoon, into the boiling mixture. If using dumplings in a soup, add the dumplings at the very end.

Dumplings don't take long to cook. Really, it only takes maybe 5 or 10 minutes and they're done.

When you add dumplings to any soup mixture, that will cause the soup to become just a bit thicker in consistency (because of the flour content in the dumpling). But it's all good.
