Cheese & Garlic Dumplings
How To Make Self-Rising Flour
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon fine salt
FOR THE CHEDDAR HERB DUMPLINGS:
1 ½ cups self-rising flour
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup shredded Irish sharp cheddar
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons mixed fresh herbs such as parsley, chives, and thyme, chopped
1. Stir together the self-rising flour and garlic powder in a medium bowl. Cut in the shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the cheddar cheese, then add the milk and stir until the dry ingredients are moistened.
2. Make small balls with the dough and place them on top of the stew, leaving them room to expand– they grow a lot as they cook. Place the stew in the oven uncovered and bake until the dumplings are browned and cooked through, about 30 to 40 minutes.
We had left over roast and gravy from the pressure cooker, made it into a stew, and the dumplings were fantastic on it!!
