  • 2 quarts (1900 ml) whole canned tomatoes
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) sugar
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) milk
  • favorite biscuit mix (like Bisquick)
  • butter
  • saly and pepper, to taste
  • Make enough biscuit mix to the consistency for Drop Biscuits for 6 large or 12 regular sized biscuits according to package instructions, set aside.
  • Put tomatoes, salt, pepper, sugar and milk into a stockpot.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Scoop golf ball sized dough into the boiling tomato mixture.
  • Reduce stockpot to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes covered.
  • Serve in crockery bowls with generous pads of cold butter to melt onto dumplings and into tomatoes with salt and pepper to taste.
You can make non-packaged feather dumplings or bread dumplings for this recipe, but Bisquick or Jiffy Baking mix is a quick and excellent way to go.

These are usually eaten as a stand alone meal, but you can sprinkle crisply cooked bacon or chopped and/or diced ham onto the dish too.
