It’s done when the dumplings are firm to the touch.

The variations of this are endless.

Meat with whatever sauce and add ins you like, topped off with Bisquick dumplings that have just as many possible add ins!

Since my oven is broken, I’m taking on the challenge of perfecting this meal choice in all its variations!!
