Yep, then there are "flat tire" or "slippery" dumplings that some folks who don't know any better prefer.

WARNING..don't anybody get their panties in a twist over that..I'm just goofing around.

I don't like the Bisquick coffee cake recipe either. I don't mind other things made with it, though if I am not in a hurry will generally make from scratch. I prefer the fat fluffy, very soft biscuit like dumplings but I'll eat the flat slippery noodle-like ones too.

We've got a recipe that makes some of the best C and D I've ever had BUT it's also a tremendous amount of work as the dumplings are made in a separate pot of either chicken stock or water, then added to the plated bowl of chicken and gravy. Best dumplings I've ever had and very good chicken mixture but it's a Paul Prudhomme recipe and if you've ever followed one of his you'll know what I'm talking about as far as how involved they are.

Hand #2 going up.

I couldn't even make sense of him when he had his TV show. All I can remember is that he was so overweight, that he sat of a stool that had wheels. Since then he has lost so much weight, I didn't recognize him at first. I kept having to stare at his picture. Good for him.

If I get panties in a twist, I'd be in real trouble, cause they're not mine, and that would just plain be mean to DW.

MIL used to make dumpling with cheese in the middle and called the pot-'o-gold dumplings.

I have yet to try dumplings but they seem simple enough. They don't sink or do they just sit there and boil?

Does this need a broth soup to cook in or can it be done in a thick gravy based stew?

They sit on top. As you can see Bisquick is the best way to make dumplings using their recipe and directions. They are clouds of absolute delight.
