Parsley Dumplings with Tomatoes Recipe

This recipe from my husband's grandmother is my favorite way to use home canned tomatoes. The bacon-flavored tomato mixture and tender dumplings are delicious with roasted or grilled meats...and the leftovers are great!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Cook: 1 hour YIELD:8-10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon, diced
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cans (28 ounces each) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • DUMPLINGS:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 cup milk

Directions

  • 1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon remove to paper towels; drain. In the same skillet, saute onions in butter until tender. Stir in the tomatoes, sugar, salt and bacon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Add parsley. Gradually stir in milk just until moistened.
  • 3. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto simmering tomato mixture. Cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into dumplings comes out clean (do not lift cover while simmering). Serve immediately. Yield: 8-10 servings.
