  • Whisk the flour, baking powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt together in a bowl, and mix in the melted butter. Stir the dumpling dough until it begins to firm up, 1 to 2 minutes. Drop the dough by tablespoon into the simmering soup. Replace lid; simmer about 15 minutes.

My husband and I both enjoyed this soup. I thought that 2T of poultry seasoning was a little too much I will use less next time (I could taste it a little more than I would have liked). Also - the 2T of melted butter wasn't enough liquid for the dumplings so I had to add water to the mixture - but they were fantastic dumplings! We would definitely make it again it was very easy and tasty. My husband recommended thickening and putting in a pie crust. Read More

The dumpling mix is way off. You'll def have to add milk or water - probably about 1/4 cup! Also 1 tsp salt in only 1 c flour!? Darn! I should've thought about that before I made them. They are sooooo salty! Also 2 Tbspn's poultry seasoning is A LOT! I doubled everything else but only used 2 heaping TSPN's of it and it seemed to be plenty. Not a bad mix of ingredients but you'll need to adjust the proportions. Read More

I followed the directions mostly I didn't use any of the poultry seasoning as it stated I used fresh garlic instead of the powder. I also had to use some water for the dumplings as another had stated. I didn't have time to cook it for 6hrs so I cooked it on high for 4hrs and put the dumplings in for the last 30 min I let the dumplings cook for 15min then took them out and thickened the soup with corn starch and water as my hubby doesn't like thin soups. Once I thickened the soup I put the dumplings back in the crock pot and con't to let them simmer for 15min. My hubby said it was the best turkey soup he had tried even better than his grandma's which is a huge deal. Happy cooking!! Read More

I always add more dumplings but either way this is far better than chicken and dumplings and my family loves it. i make it every year at this time using left over turkey that I put in the freezer. Read More

I made this from scratch by boiling a turkey carcass for 4 hours and using the broth in place of canned stock and the poultry seasoning- it is much healthier and tastier that way. I'll use this again with chicken bones as well. I've never had dumpling soup before and it turns out we quite liked it. From now on I will choose dumplings in my soup over noodles. I did have to simmer them for about 30 minutes to get them fully cooked though. Read More

This soup is very easy to prepare and great for the crockpot when you have leftover turkey. I have to say though I was NOT a fan of the poultry seasoning. It gave the soup a bit of an odd flavor. I would omit it next time and maybe add a chicken boullion cube or 2 instead. Read More
