Cabbage With Biscuit Dumplings

It’s been two weeks now of going shopping and not finding things I need! Since when have they stopped putting out strawberries and raspberries in syrup in the freezer department? I wanted to make some of our Raspberry Liqueur I posted last January, so it will be ready for the holidays and could not find the 10 ounce boxes they used to sell. Not only that, but I wanted to make some of the acorn squash I posted yesterday to go with some pork chops I’m making this weekend, one store had nary a one and the second, only had two on the shelf! Did everyone see that recipe and decide to make a stampede to the grocery store and buy up all the squash?  I know my sister up in New York was going out to buy one today as the recipe reminded her of something similar she had in a restaurant a long time ago and couldn’t wait to try making it herself as she is a squash lover like me. She even suggested filling a spaghetti squash with the same filling! Well anyway let’s get on with this cabbage thing I’m doing today!

My kind of dumplings!

Cabbage With Biscuit Dumplings
  • 1 medium cabbage, coarsely chopped
  • ¾ cup water
  • ¾ cup vinegar
  • ¾ cup bacon drippings
  • 1 tbsp caraway seeds (optional, and not an option in my house!)
  • 3 cups biscuit mix
  • 2 eggs
  • Milk
  • Extra caraway seeds if desired
  1. Combine the cabbage in a large saucepan with the next 4 ingredients and steam for 40 minutes.
  2. While cabbage is cooking, combine the biscuit mix with the eggs and stir; moisten with enough milk to make a biscuit type consistency, add some extra caraway seeds if desired.
  3. Turn onto a floured surface and knead slightly.
  4. When 40 minutes on the cabbage is up, form dough loosely into balls and place on top of cabbage in a single layer.
  5. Cover and steam for another 20 minutes; dumplings will be firm when cooked.


These were the only dumplings I knew of until I met this Floridian husband I have. The first time I made them, he asked what the hell are these and where’s the dumplings? His mom cooked true southern dumplings, something us yanks call NOODLES! Well now when I make stewed chicken, both types of dumplings grace the dinner table and everyone is happy!

This cabbage would go good with our chops this weekend…………enjoy!
