I was looking for a recipe that would make drop dumplings as easily as Bisquick but without the Bisquick's fake ingredients. This is it! Perfectly soft and puffy. Only change I made was to use butter rather than shortening.
I must have done something wrong, but everytime I try to make these kind of dumplings, they dissentigrate to nothingness!!! It was a mess!! I'll slick with a more dense dumpling recipe my mom uses, all that's in that is flour egg and milk!!!! Never fails.
I forgot to make bread with our stew yesterday which was a tragedy so we decided to throw in some dumplings instead. My three year old calls them ducklings and he thought they were great. We didn't have any leftovers so I'll definitely be using this recipe again. Very tasty and really easy to make. Thanks!
We like dumplings in beef stew and I've never been able to make really good ones. Until yesterday. I made them too large really but it didn't matter. They were perfect, light and tender all the way through. My only change was to add coarsely ground pepper. I'll halve the size next time but I'll use this recipe.
These were great. Made them dairy free due to dietary restrictions in the family. Used 3 Tbsp ground flax seed and 2 Tbsp canola oil for the shortening and 3/4 cup rice milk for the milk. They were delicious!
Good old fashioned bread dumplings! Simple and perfect for stew. I added a tablespoon of dried parsley flakes for color but that's it. You can add other herbs but why ... the simplicity of this dumpling compliments and doesn't compete with the stew's gravy. After plopping mine on top of the stew I covered with a lid and turned heat to the lowest setting for 10 minutes and then turned off the heat and left them rest while still covered for another 10 minutes. They puffed up nice and had a wholesome goodness to them.
I was looking for a recipe to make chicken and dumplings when I stumbled across this recipe. Next time I will double the batch of dumplings as they were really REALLy good. Easy, fast, and good--couldn't ask for a better dumpling! Thanks for the recipe!!
These were really good dumplings, a bit too fluffy for my liking though, I like them a bit more dense.
