My main concern is that the recipe states that cooking time is 30 min. With simmering twice at 15 min each, then cooking the dumplings covered and uncovered at 10 min each, that's a total of 50 minutes even with everything pre-prepped (including bacon cooked and crumbled). I'd say give it a good hour. As for taste, it was ok - just needs to be tweeked a bit! I reduced the amount of half and half to 2 cups, as others suggested, and also added a bit of cornstarch. I used Jiffy biscuit mix and there were no directions for dumplings on the box, so I started out with a 1/2 cup milk, but had to add more. I still don't think I got it right, as the dumplings never completely cooked thru on top (I ended up turning them over to finish cooking). I would definitely add more bacon, and maybe some carrots and peas for color. The dumplings need something as well...maybe some garlic powder or basil or whatever you would like to flavor your dumplings with! By themselves I thought they were too bland. I will most likely be making this again - just a little differently! :) Thanks!!
