Low Fat, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Trans-fat Free, Low Carb, Very low in sodium, Low Sodium


2 cups biscuit baking mix (bisquick)
cup milk
* not incl. in nutrient facts


Dumplings: Mix 2 cups Bisquick and ⅔ cup milk until soft dough forms.

Drop dough by spoonfuls onto stew (do not drop directly into liquid). Cook uncovered over low heat 10 minutes. Cover and cook 10 minutes longer. Depending on where you live, you may need to add more liquid.

Tip: The secret is... DO NOT OVER MIX! and let them set for a few minutes, so they rise.

For the gluten free version of bisquick, you need more milk - maybe a cup to 1.25 cups. It's great by the way. So happy it exists.

I am amazed when people think that dough balls are dumplings! Bisquick makes wonderful, fluffy dumplings that my husband and kids love. It also makes a lovely shortcake to serve with strawberries!

They are dumplings and not dough balls. The dough cooks in the stock. It's like a cooked biscuit on the inside.

A few years ago I started adding a couple of stalks of celery to my chicken and dumplings. It adds a little flavor and color.

What do you mean "do not drop directly on liquid"? The meat and veggies sink to the bottom. What other way do you suggest to place the dumpling?

I grew up with bisquick but my husband likes those flat premade dumplings so we compromised... I use bisquick and just roll it out and cut it in strips. Tadaa. Still fluffy and it makes a thicker broth those premade chewy strips never could. Now its my favorite. Belinda, Florida

I say make the bisquick, bulk and packaged in a baggie yourself in any flavor. Like garlic cheese. Keep the poisons off your table and out of your children.

broth / gravy needs to be boiling, you need to cook it uncovered then covered.

And thank you for having htis

I followed the recipe and cooking instructions to the letter, but sometimes my dumplings are not fluffy. Why?

 4 months ago

Dumplings like biscuits, suffer from over-mixing. If they come out chewy or dense, gluten has been over developed. This is great for bread, but not for light and fluffy. Suggestion: Mix by hand, gently (spoon), rest the dough at room temp. 'till you see some rise and never use a wisk.

The recipe is on the side of the box under BISCUITS & DUMPLINGS. The dumpling recipe is at the bottom of that section. It's always been there but easy to overlook.

I have not made this dumpling recipe for about 10-15 years. I am preparing & noticed the recipe was gone. So I immediately searched on my PC, and thankfully it was found. After so many years I had forgotten the actual recipe although it's a very simple one. I can't wait to taste those babies after so long. I'm sure that with all of the requests to add back on box, they will - sometime soon, or not. I see others have been requesting for years now. Wow.
