Homemade Dumpling Recipe

Posted By Jen On January 14, 2012 @ 1:13 pm In Dinner | 3 Comments


Homemade dumplings are such an easily overlooked comfort food.  Nothing says cozy more than a roaring fire and a bowl of simmering soup, but please don’t forget to make this easy homemade dumpling recipe. With only a few minutes of preparation, they make any soup extra special, not to mention just how inexpensive they are on the budget.

This is a kid tested, pantry challenge approved addition to all of our meals, plus it’s a perfect recipe to add to your growing, “Cooking with Kids [4]” repertoire.

This week, I made one of the most delicious soups as a result of my January Pantry & Freezer Challenge [5].  Isn’t it wonderful to find out how creative we can be by using what we already have on hand?

With leftover chicken broth from my crock pot chicken – the ten minute meal way [6], rice that was already cooked and frozen from one of my one hour power cooking times [7], along with frozen corn, spices, a few bits of fried onions and potatoes (also cooked and in the freezer already) and then whole wheat dumplings, it was comfort food at its finest. Yes, a quick and easy meal idea: [8]ten minute dinners.

Trust me, my homemade dumplings are so easy, but some of you may prefer the truly lazy man’s dumpling recipe.

2 cups Bisquick mix
2/3 cup milk
Stir ingredients until soft dough forms OR even lazier?  Just use refrigerated biscuit dough

Drop by spoonfuls onto hot stew: reduce heat Cook uncovered for ten minutes; Cover and cook for ten more

Why don’t you take a few minutes and whip up some homemade dumplings for your dinner tonight?
