I used Cornish Game Hens, but you could also use a cut up
chicken. If you can't get winter melon, watermelon will work. Winter melon is white, very mild tasting and a tad denser than watermelon. I think you could get away using something like Honeydew too.
No Christmas feast in medieval times was complete without a 'grete pye'. In some recipes, it could contain many varied meats, but quite
often only two or three different kinds were suggested; change the meats suggested here if you wish.
THIS BASIC RECIPE NO LONGER IS ON THE BISQUICK BOX. IT SHOULD BE!!!
IT'S EASY & MAKES THE BEST DROP DUMPLINGS AROUND. IT'S EASY TO ADJUST THE SIZE OF THE RECIPE WITH ITS 3/1 RATIO AND CAN BE USED IN A MULTITUDE OF WAYS. ONE OF MY FAMILIES FAVORITES.
