“Whenever we get close to the end of a paycheck our meals become more cheap and oft times more original because we have to use whatever we have on hand. We made this up last night and I will certainly be making it a part of our regular menu. I served it with gravy and had steamed zucchini and yellow squash on the side. The dough I chose was a harder, crusty type of bread. The type that keeps all the filling inside. I don't know how different kinds of dough will turn out with this. You can also use different fillings. I added corn to a couple of mine and it was delicious. I really want to try replacing the onion with lipton onion soup mix. Note: I made 6 dumplings with mine but dough can easily make 8”
