I make homemade chicken soup in my crockpot in the fall then when it starts getting cold all I have to do is pull it out of the freezer and add egg noodles or the dumplings and I have a simple, healthy meal that my whole family can't get enough of.

Love the dumplings as do my family. Kids even invite friends over for stew nights. Ho-Hum turn into WOW with the simple addition of your dumplings.

I have been making bisquick dumplings for years and they were great. I just finished making not 1 but 2 batches that were awful. We like the fluffy dumplings and these turned out hard. Please advise.
Thanks Carroll Howen

Just add a teaspoon of olive oil to your dough mix or melted butter

@Carol - I get better (lighter) dumplings if I let the dough sit for 15 minutes or so before dropping them into the soup/stew/gravy.

 over 10 years ago

I recommend adding garlic/onion powder, basil, thyme to the dumpling mix. This adds much flavor. Dumplings fill you up & taste great! Bisquick is a WONDERFUL product!

Thank you so much for the recipe...went to Bisquick web-site and they really fouled me up. Changed my browser and made it impossible to sign-off their web site unless I signed up for all their stuff. They are a BIG rip-off!!!!

it said not to drop directly into liquid. my question where do I drop it? STUPID!!!!

Ny, NY, US

The recipe says drop dough by spoonfuls onto stew, it means you should use a spoon to put the dough into the hot stew and do not use your hands directly, which may burn your hands. I think it is a good thing to mention, nothing wrong with that!

 over 10 years ago

I drop the dumplings right into my boiling soup! It is so easy and so good! Not a drop left!

My MOM used to make the most flavorful, hearty Dumpling stews, soups etc great to have and enjoy over the cold winter months! I have tried unsuccefully to create my own and they never have come out like hers! HELP! Also how about some for camping?

To prevent dry dumplings, stir and fluff the dry Bisquick before measuring. It settles, so you get too much and throw off the proportion of wet to dry ingredients. Don't mix it too much, or it will toughen the dough.

East Stroudsburg, United States

just made these. totally delicious. in regard to the suggestion of the serving size and how many dumplings the recipe yields, it would depend on what size you make. I made large ones it yielded 7. But if you prefer smaller dumplings you could get 14.

I find the dumplings come out hard if there is not enough moisture in the dumplings. Sometimes I add more milk to get the dough the right consistency. It should not be stiff.

I grew up on these dumplings. Chicken and Dumplings was my favorite meal. My girls love them too. We do not like the noodles that people call dumplings.

Mechanicsburg, United States

To clear up what they mean by "Do not drop directly into liquid"...Stew is much thicker than soup. My chicken stew consists of chicken, vegetables, potatoes and egg noodles and when I drop the dough into the stew it is thick enough that I can drop it on top of the other ingredients without it falling directly into nothing but pure liquid. I also have been making these dumplings for 25+ plus years and agree with everyone else that all of a sudden (with no changes on my end) they are no longer light and fluffy. Lately, mine have been coming out hard and doughy too. I suspect they changed the recipe :( I used to have them mastered!

My wife used to make great dumplings with Bisquick but lately they turn out hard and doughy and don't rise at all. We believe the product has been changed as she has always made them in the same manor. What's going on ?

could be the backing powder is old and therefore
not rising. I keep ours in the refg. until use.
also, since I use thighs for the chicken, I can
put the dumplings on top and they are not in the
juice that much, however I usually scoop juice on top of the dumplins about 3/4 done. I cook mine covered in boiling liquid about 10 min. only. over cooking will make them tough.
most of the time I also add parsley (dried) and
poultry seasoning (about 1 tsp) each. hope this helps someone...

Last two times making Bisquick dumplings (the recipe is printing on the lower side of the box)they don't rise and are doughy. They take triple the time to cook! Whats up? New box, follow directions to the "T". Making it in stew.

Be sure to never use Bisquick that is past the expiration date-they will not rise.

It appears some kid that did not grow up on Bisquick is now messing with the recipe. Good way to kill your sales and insure you end up flipping burgers down at the local McWhatever. Go back to the old contents and fire the jerk that decided they could do it better.

Dumplings used to be fluffy and light. But they've been flat and hard for years despite faithfully following the recipe. I keep the Bisquick in the freezer; otherwise, the weevils hatch after a couple of months here in Hawai'i.

Made these for years and now they are hard and doughy. I read all the comments and don’t know if I should add an egg, 1 tsp. olive oil, fluff up the mix before measuring, not over mix, store in my refrigerator or just give up! Did they indeed change the recipe???

I like to make these cooked in sauerkraut juice and then top the dumplings with browned butter! Great with pork and sauerkraut on new year's day!

Stuart, United States

I've been making Bisquick dumplings for 50 years and they are still good. Check your box for expiration date, don't mix a lot before dropping the dough by spoonfuls on top of whatever is boiling in the pot. We put them on top of sauerkraut and pork for New Years Day (old custom). I also make the recipe for biscuits for strawberry shortcakes. My Mother and Grandmother did this as well.

I made them again tonight, after hunting down the recipe since the idiots took it off the box. I'm not careful about measuring or not packing or leveling or over-mixing or time limits covered and/or uncovered. And the only seasoning I use are salt and pepper. And as usual they came out perfect! Just wish I could cram more into the large pot of boiling broth. Recipe as written doesn't make many, even going 1 1/2.

I am 62 years old. My mother made her dumplings from Bisquick-they were delicious! So I followed in her footsteps and make mine this way too after trying many recipes. They used to turn out so light and fluffy with so much flavor. BUT lately, your formula for your product must have changed because I didn't, after all this time, suddenly forget how to make them. What idiot changed your recipe for your mix?

I have to agree with others. I’ve been making dumplings with Bisquick for over 30 + years and I made them tonight and very disappointed! They where somewhat hard and doughy. They have always been good and only took about 20 minutes to cook. I cooked them for over 1/2 hour and they where still doughy. What is gone on???

Fallbrook, United States

Make sure the mix is not past its expiration date. This cannot be stressed enough! If the box is passing vehicle written date you will not get good results. I found they taste just as good as ever. But then I make certain that the expiration date is in the future.

Faithful to Bisquick, so was mom and grandmom. I have always used Bisquick for my dumplings and they have been crap lately. We call them sinkers. I can't figure out what to do to remedy this. Half of them are fluffy and half of them are sinkers.

If the recipe has changed, the company should comment. If it has not, why are all these people saying it has? I grew up on them, and hope that they come out fluffy.
