ingredients needed for bisquick dumplings

This dumplings recipe requires just three ingredients:

  • Bisquick
  • Milk
  • Italian seasoning

Now, the Italian seasoning obviously isn’t necessary but I like to add a flavorful pop to my Bisquick dumplings.

If you need to, you can substitute a non-dairy milk or water for the milk, or even chicken broth for extra flavor!

I’ve added lots of other flavorful mix ins down below!

What can I add to make these soup dumplings extra special?

  • ½ to 1 cup shredded cheese
  • freshly chipped chives, parsley, basil or dill

How to make Bisquick Dumplings:

Dumplings — whether the homemade version in this Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings or these Bisquick dumplings — are easy to make!

  1. Combine Bisquick (or other dry ingredients), milk and Italian seasoning.
  2. Stir until combined but don’t overmix — you want just all of the Bisquick to be absorbed, but no more or you’ll make them tough.
  3. Spoon onto a simmering soup or stew, cover with a lid and cook for 10-15 minutes or until puffed and light golden brown on top. No need to stir!

How do I cook Bisquick dumplings?

One of the best things about dumplings is they add something special to so many different meals — soups, stews, chilis, pot pies, you name it. Almost any of these soup recipes will work just fine as a base.

Spoon by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a pot of simmering pot of saucy deliciousness, cover with a lid, and let cook until golden brown.

Here are a few of our favorite ways:

Tips for making the best dumplings:

  • Make sure your soup or stew has a good amount of liquid. Don’t push the dumplings into the soup but make sure to add a bit of extra liquid before adding your dumplings if necessary.
  • Since Bisquick has baking soda in it, an acidic ingredient will react with it to make them rise. This is why buttermilk is a great swap for regular milk!
  • If you want a golden crust on your dumplings, your best bet is to bake or broil them. For even more browning action, you can add 1 tablespoon of oil to the dumpling dough before scooping onto the soup.
