The dumplings came out perfect and we so enjoyed them. I used chicken broth to cook them in for added flavor. They turned out great!

My husbands Aunt Dorothy made the best dumpling and gravy. She always used left-over mashed potatoes in hers and I thought they were great. This recipe is as close as I have ever found to hers. They are delicious with pork or beef gravy and in stew. Yummy! Brings back fond memories and as she was a cook that never used a recipe until now we could not fiqure out how to make one of our family favorites. Sandy Zikursh,Mentor,Oh
