Wanted this to please Dh and it succeeded. The use of oatmeal is a really sneaky way to get more whole grain and fiber into the family. They'll never know it's in there. Used Mean Chef's Nirvana Italian Gravy #28725 for the sauce as I always keep some on hand. It worked beautifully and required no extra beef. I made the chili ahead of time, planning to reheat it, top with the corn bread and bake. You know what happens to oatmeal when it sits in a bowl for a few hours? The addition of another cup of broth solved the problem of partially solidified chili. I used 1/4 of Corn Bread Mix #4290 for the dumplings.
