Green Peas and Dumplings

This is a nice little southern dish--great comfort food. You may use homemade drop dumplings in place of the canned biscuits if you wish. Prep time will be longer with the fresh peas and dumplings.

    Thank you for a return trip to my childhood. My gramma used to make this all the time when we were growing up. It tasted just like I remembered. I didnt have evaporated milk so I just used regular milk, which is how I remember my gramma making them too. Turned out great! Thanks for sharing a long ago favourite.

    How have I lived sooo long without ever trying this. Terrific comfort food, Recipe Fairy. I substituted turkey broth for the water since it needed to be used up but otherwise didn't and wouldn't change a thing.

    My husband LOVES these! His Mama is from Georgia and taught me to make these years ago. I use regular milk instead of evaporated, but other than that same! I do not eat them as I do not care for peas, but he says 5 stars all the way!
