Chop bacon into 1” pieces and cook until browned in the bottom of a large stock pot.
Add onions and celery while the bacon is cooking. Add potatoes, water, salt, pepper, parsley and ham flavoring. Simmer until potatoes are tender.
While soup is cooking, make the dumplings. Combine flour and salt. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture.
Add the eggs and scramble them with a fork. Use the fork to incorporate the eggs into the flour. The dough will be sticky.
When the potatoes are tender, bring the soup to a boil and drop dough by teaspoonful into the soup. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the dumplings are cooked.
