This is Ronna, the poster of this recipe. Everyone is right---it should NOT be a teaspoon of salt. 1/4 - 1/2, depending on your tastes, is plenty.
Sorry for the Goof Up!
My family liked these and thought they were fine, but I found them too salty and I followed the recipe precisely. So, if I ever make these again I think I'll cut back on the salt. It had the right amount of herbs though. I think a half teaspoon of salt would be fine, considering the soup or stew you're adding them to is bound to be salty enough on its own. Either I'd do that or I would use unsalted butter.
This is a great recipe! After reading the reviews I cut all the herbs in half and the flavor was perfect! I've tried many different dumpling recipies, including the baking mix, and I've never had such perfect fluffy dumplings.
For those of you who get 'soggy, sinking, or gluey' dumplings you have to leave the lid on for the entire cooking time. If you lift it off before you will ruin your dumplings - every time!
Not what I was expecting.. They did come out fluffy, but seemed a little too overseasoned. I'll cut back on herbs next time.
These were absolutely delicious! Delicate, light, fluffy, perfect dumplings. I did note the suggestion of the original poster (Ronnastefan) and cut back the salt to 1/4 to 1/2 tsp... This is such a versatile recipe with herbs that can easily be changed to complement any dish that would benefit from dumplings. Will definitely become one of my "go to" recipes. Thanks so much for posting it.
This was good, and added some nice flavor to my chicken stew. After reading the other reviews, I reduced the salt to 1/4 tsp and all the herbs to 3/4 tsp. I also added 1/2 tsp onion powder and used 1 cup buttermilk instead of 3/4 cup milk (to make it taste more like biscuits). This will replace my regular dumpling recipe. Thanks!
Yummy, throw them over hot beef stew in a crockpot, cover, and cook 30 minutes or until done.
YUMMY! The first time i've ever made dumplings, and these were easy and very tasty, best i've tasted.
