Original Bisquick mix and milk are the ingredients in Betty Crocker's basic dumpling recipe. Stir 2 cups of the mix with 2/3 cup of milk until a soft dough forms, and drop it by spoonfuls onto boiling stew. Cook the dumplings for 10 minutes uncovered, and 10 more minutes covered.
Other Betty Crocker dumpling recipes include apple dumplings, chili chicken soup with cilantro dumplings, and homemade dumplings. The apple dumplings use ingredients such as butter, raisins, chopped nuts and brown sugar. The cilantro dumplings require Original Bisquick mix and milk in addition to cilantro and cumin.
The homemade-dumpling recipe calls for 1 1/2 cups of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, 3 tablespoons of shortening and 3/4 cup of milk, as well as 1 tablespoon of parsley flakes if desired. In a bowl, mix together the flour, parsley, baking powder and salt. Cut in the shortening using a blender or knives until the mixture resembles fine crumbs, and stir in the milk. Drop 10 spoonfuls of the dough onto boiling stew, and cook them for 10 minutes uncovered and 10 minutes covered. This recipe takes a total of 30 minutes to make and yields 10 servings.
