Wonderful recipe! I got this in one of my Taste of Home Cookbooks. One of my fav. ways to use up turkey leftovers. I leave the dumplings covered for the whole twenty minutes. I add garlic and a bay leaf to this recipe, a pinch of sugar also. Yum! Update: I also cut the butter in half, to 1/4 cup with wonderful results! This is the best recipe I have ever made for using up turkey leftovers!
