I’ve posted this recipe once before, but they’re so stinkin’ good, and match up so well with the sales ads this week at Publix, Kroger, & even Target that I had to share them again this week! These are some yummy dumplings . . . in fact they’re one of my favorite slow cooked recipes (right next to this Italian Beef . . . mmmmmm.) Your family will think you’ve spent all day in the kitchen, and they taste just about as good as Cracker Barrel’s, which is a pretty big treat around our house! (Don’t you just love Cracker Barrel’s Dumplings?)
If you have time to make real dumplings from scratch these homemade ones are absolutely the best, but if you’re in a hurry on a busy weeknight, pull out your crockpot and let it do the cooking for you.
