Dumplings are an easy way to turn a soup or stew into a full meal. If you enjoy cooking in your Crock-Pot, you can even prep dumplings right in your slow cooker for a one-pot-meal solution. Try dumplings with your favorite soup or stew, ranging from classic chicken soup to a rich and flavorful goulash. While biscuit dumplings are a classic, you'll find that cornmeal dumplings or noodle-style dumplings also work with this Crock-Pot cooking method.

Prepare the soup in the Crock-Pot. Allow it to cook on low or high heat as indicated on your recipe until about 40 minutes before you plan to serve dinner.

Step 2

Stir 2 cups of biscuit mix and 2/3 cup of milk until a soft dough forms.

Step 3

Remove the lid and drop the dumpling batter into your soup or stew in generous spoonfuls.

Step 4

Cover the slow cooker and cook the mixture on high for 30 to 40 minutes. Serve the hot soup or stew with dumplings on top.
