Dumplings

Do you make your dumpling in your pot of soup or make them and then add them to the pot once they're done?

For chicken and dumplings, I make them in the pot when cooking them. For noodles, it depends on the kind of soup and whether I believe that I will have leftovers.

In the pot. They take on the taste of the broth.

Do you cover the pot when you cook them?

You have to as the steam and heat captured in the covered pot provide the energy to cook the dumplings. At least, I believe that is correct, and is the way I always cook my biscuit-style dumplings.

If I am making chicken and dumplings, I will add about a 1/2 tsp. of sage dressing seasoning to the dumplings. Now I want some chicken soup. Dang!

I love my puffy dumplings made in the pot of simmering whatever. I use the Bisquick
side of the box recipe and cook them 10 minutes covered, and 10 minutes uncovered.
They turn out perfect every single time. That's just another example of cooking smart in my opinion.

A lot of folks may make disparaging remarks about Bisquick, but whatever you make with them, it is always a 'never fail' recipe. I hate to share any of the dumplings with anyone else. They can have all the other fixings that go with the soup. A little of the broth, and all the dumplings for me.

I love Bisquick dumplings, biscuits, pancakes and waffles, but I tried making a coffee cake with Bisquick and didn't like it. I think the recipe is on the box. I can't duplicate my mother's dumplings. They were wet and sticky on the outside but dry and fluffy on the inside. I think she made them from Bisquick but since I wasn't allowed in the kitchen when she was cooking, I'm not sure.

I also liked the rolled "pot pie" dumplings that she used to make. Can't duplicate them, either.

If I am using Bisquick and it requires spreading flour on the board, I use the Bisquick. And I know what your are saying about their coffee cake. One time when I mentioned to someone that I drop my dumplings with a large spoon, the OP stated that she flattens out the dough and cuts it into squares, Then she drops them into the pot. I thought of trying that method, but then considered it just one step too many. Sort of like using a cutter on a patted out dough on the board.
