This is a recipe I made up, when trying to make homemade pot pies. They are not really dumplings, but I thought they resembled one from the outside appearance..... I used frozen prepared empanada discs in the freezer section of my local grocery store. They tasted spot on, and my family loved them..... If you want to make the gravy a little creamier, just add a touch of whipping cream to thicken it up.
