My wife's mother used to make something she called stuffing dumplings. She would mix together 10 cups bread cubes, celery, onions, two eggs and then add warm milk. She would mix and then put them in boiling water. She has passed away and we tried to make but the balls just separated in the water. Any hints (possibly flour is missing from recipes?) Thank you.
These were very good. I added chopped apples, and fresh sage and thyme from the garden rather than poultry seasoning. Because I was making them for Thanksgiving I always try to make as much as I can ahead of time, so I baked them two days before, stuck them in the freezer and when needed, just reheated for about 15 minutes with foil overtop. They were nice and crispy. We did our turkey on the rotisserie in the BBQ. I do prefer a stuffing outside the bird anyway and will surely make these again, perhaps adding a couple of other of your variations. Thanks foodtvfan!
Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup 2013 tag game and this was a hit. I did use some garlic (we love garlic and homemade chicken broth) but other than that followed the instructions. Going to be making these again soon. Thank you for posting. I want to make some extra and put in the freezer for busy times like a previous reviewer did.
I veganized these and they turned out really well! I used Earth Balance margarine for butter. 1/4 cup apple sauce and 1 tbsp corn starch in place of the egg, and just plain water for the broth. The spices were more then sufficient. Added chopped nuts and dried cranberries. Would definitely make these again. Super simple and yummy!
I had a couple random bags of leftover hamburger and hotdog rolls in the bottom drawer of my freezer. I needed something to do with them. This was perfect! I had everything on hand and didn't need to go to the store. My kids (the taste testers - ages 4 and 7) loved them. I will make these again for company sometime.
