How To Make A Delicious Dumpling...

 

Homemade Dumplings, Living From Glory To Glory Blog






~Dumplings~

Ingredients Needed:
2 cups flour
1-1/2 tsp salt
1 TBL. Baking Powder
2 TBL. Vegetable oil
1 egg, beaten
1 cup warm milk
Salt and pepper the tops of them after you drop them in the broth...

Add dry ingredients, mix well in a bowl
In a measuring glass warm your milk, then add your oil and the beaten egg!

Pour this into the dry ingredients, the dough will be a bit sticky.


Now, Drop a spoonful of the dumpling mixture into hot chicken broth;
Cover and steam for about 4 to 5 minutes. Do not allow it to be a roiling boil
 The tops will look cooked and a bit firm after cooking time.

Carefully remove dumplings with a slotted spoon onto a plate with paper towel, to drain extra liquid
Cover in a separate container from the soup or broth, as this allows you to keep them from getting soggy.  These taste yummy warmed up and topped with a bit of butter. Or place in a bowl and add your chicken soup stock with veggies!

 I like to eat them just by themselves!

These are very simple to make and require only a few ingredients!




This was my own version for making dumplings!


I have very fond memories of eating dumplings as a child,
Our Mother made them often for dinner.
It is a nice change from having potatoes or rice all the time!

But I finally came to the conclusion something was just missing from the
Flavor and texture of my Mothers dumplings;
So I did a bit of testing and found it needed more salt and an egg for richness!
The liquid needed to be thicker than broth or water, so I tried warm milk.
Warming the milk really did make a difference in the batter.

These dumplings only take about 5 minutes to cook;
Just have them at a light boil and cook with the lid on the pan!





So if anyone ever calls you Dumplen,
They my dear are giving you a compliment...

Looks delicious Roxy! I only made dumplings once, and that was many years ago. My grandma always made dumplings. She added them to her stew, chicken soup and other recipes.

Yummy... dumplings!
My mother made the best dumplings when I was little. One of my favorite things.
I want to thank you for your prayers for my fur baby Archie. He had surgery this morning and is home now. Very out of it and can barely stand but should improve by tomorrow. I'm hoping he will sleep good tonight. We won't know for sure if it is cancer for two weeks. I will be beside myself.
Thank you for your kind words. I appreciate it.
Blessings,
Elizabeth
