I always use a biscuit mix to make dumplings, the recipe is on the box.

...or you could buy a roll of canned biscuits and add them to the boiling liquid...

or...
Dumplings
  • 2cups unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 1tablespoon baking powder
  • 1teaspoon salt
  • 1cup whole milk
  • 3tablespoons reserved chicken fat (or unsalted butter)
  1. Stir the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Microwave the milk and fat in a microwave-safe bowl on high until just warm (do not over-heat), about 1 minute. Stir the warmed milk mixture into the flour mixture with a wooden spoon until incorporated and smooth.
  2. 5. Return the stew to a simmer and drop golf-ball-sized dumplings over the top of the stew, about 1/4 inch apart (you should have about 18 dumplings). Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook until the dumplings have doubled in size, 15 to 18 minutes. Serve.
Each suggestion has its time and place and isn't any better than another, considering they are liquid soaked dough balls.

I have seen in a recipe to use the canned refrigerated biscuits. Cut them up with scissors and drop them into the hot boiling or steaming liquid.

Diced white bread fried in olive oil and garlic is my favorite with split green pea soup. Don't know if that would work with pea soup made without the smokey flavor achieved by cooking the peas with broth made from the bone and remnants of smoked pieces of that 'other white meat'.

Actually I can't imagine dumplings in Split Pea Soup. I guess it just sounds over the top with carbs or something.. I love Bisquick dumplings in chicken or beef stew however.

This sounds tasty and crunchy Bill......I'll have to try it.

That does seem very high in carbs. Also pea soup is usually too thick to support using dumplings IMHO.

I agree. Pea soup and cornbread sound better together. Chicken & dumplings.

I still have to thicken the beef steak stew, and planned on making drop biscuits.

I've put it in the fridge so I can scrape the fat off tomorrow and use it to make a roux for thickening. So, maybe I'll just drop those drop biscuits on top of the stew and make dumplings.

Besides the bisquick dumplings already mentioned, the only thing I could offer are gnocchi or the "belly buster" potato dumplings we serve with sauerbraten. It is my grandmothers recipe from Germany, but even though they are great, they are very heavy.

Are you looking for dumplings to float on top or hard dumplings IN your soup (we call them hard dumplings and they look like chunks of fat noodles)? I have a recipe for hard dumplings if you want it ...
