I checked it out this evening and found several that sounded very yummy. I like to try a new recipe about every other week, keeps me from getting bored fixing the same things over and over.

PostSubject: Herb Dumplings   Wed Feb 19, 2014 5:30 pm

1 cup self-raising flour
1/2 teaspoon salt or you can use garlic salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons of finely chopped herbs or 2 tablespoons dried herbs
1/2 cup milk

Sift flour and salt into mixing bowl.
Rub butter in lightly with fingertips until resembles bread crumbs, mix in herbs and then milk, mixing till it forms a soft dough.
Roll into balls, drop into top of casserole or soup
Cover and cook 15 minutes.

Should look something like this, they are yummy - you can make them plain too, dont have to add herbs



They are yummy over hungarian goulash, all manner of casseroles and oven baked dishes, in thick soups and stove top casseroles, stews etc. They take about 5mins to prepare and about 15mins to cook through, just open one with a knife to make sure its cooked all through. Sometimes i make them with just parsley and cracked black pepper and some people add cheese like parmesan to them

You can just use your personal favourites or mixed herbs like in a can/jar/packets, you could use

Thyme
Mixed Herbs
Italian Herb Mix
Parsley
Chives
Paprika (I often add half a teaspoon)

Dont use rosemary alone, its too strong when they cook.

They are all yummy :-)

What a lot of people do in Australia is make a casserole/stew and have it the first night, then add dumplings the second night, change the meal a bit

Golo, you just add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt to one cup of all purpose flour. Sift together.
I only know this because I recently ran out of self rising and needed a bit more. I always keep a bag of self rising in the fridge. Great for quick biscuits (recipe on bag) and other recipes.

Oh I forget you call the flour and sugars by different names to us, I think All Purpose is what we call Plain flour, it has no rising agents added to it. So yeah, its whatever flour has rising agents, like you would use when making a cake or something
