Simply Delicious Dumplings

I had turkey left over from a holiday meal so the other day I made turkey and dumplings.   My older sister use to make chicken and dumplings when my parents would go out of town and last week I was thinking that I've never made a dumpling. 

This recipe is so easy and they taste delicious. Try them, you'll like them!

This recipe would also be good with a thicker beef stew.

1 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 T. butter
1/2 c. milk

Stir together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.  Cut the butter into the dry ingredients until crumbly.  Stir in the milk until the flour is absorbed.  Drop by spoonfuls into the hot stew.  Cover and simmer for 15 minutes without lifting the lid.  Serve hot.


  1. That actually sounds really yummy.

  2. I made these last night with some homemade chicken noodle soup. I'm pretty sure I never want to eat soup again without dumplings. Yum!

    Also, I didn't do this, but I think they'd be SUPER delicious if you put some seasoning on top of them before you put the lid on the soup for them to bake.

  3. I just made these with our beef stew tonight and they were awesome. Livy loved them even.
