How to Make Original Bisquick Dumplings
The beauty of using Bisquick to make dumplings is that they are as simple and easy to make as they are delicious. To make these Bisquick dumplings, it shockingly only requires two ingredients: Bisquick baking mix and milk. All the equipment you will need is a bowl, a whisk, a butter knife, a rubber spatula, and a spoon.
While there are only two required ingredients to make these biscuits, another blessing of this recipe is that you can also add any herbs, cheeses, spices, or any other flavorings you desire to the dry mix. Parsley, thyme, rosemary, garlic, paprika, cayenne pepper, grated parmesan cheese, and shredded cheddar cheese are all great additions to these dumplings.
Simply mix the Bisquick and milk together to form a soft dough. Then, let the dough sit for 5-10 minutes to rise. The key to making the best dumplings is not overmixing them, if you mix them for too long, they will get too dense and too chewy.
Of course, one does not just eat these dumplings on their own, they’re usually served on top of a delicious stew, soaking up all of the amazing flavors. A classic chicken and vegetable stew is particularly well-suited for taking in these dumplings, but beef stew, mushroom stew, chicken paprikash, or any other stew you can imagine would all be sensational vessels to serve these dumplings with.
So, to cook these dumplings, get a pot of your favorite stew to a rolling simmer and drop spoonfuls of the dough into the stew. Next, reduce the heat on the stew and cook uncovered for 10 minutes to cook the bottoms of the dumplings. Finally, cover the pot and cook for another 10 minutes to cook the tops of the dumplings through. The result will be a beautiful, delicious, raft of buttery, flaky goodness floating elegantly on top of the stew while absorbing all the wonderful taste below.
