Dumplings (recipe from Bisquick box...a family favorite)
3 cups of Bisquick
1 cup of milk
Mix until soft and add by spoonfuls onto boiling soup. Cook uncovered for 10 minutes and then cover and cook for 10 more minutes
My mom sometimes would make homemade noodles instead of dumplings or add egg noodles to make it chicken soup...either way it is delicious on these cold winter days!
