Milk: I like using whole milk to make these dumplings. The fat in the milk makes them more flavorful and softer than they would be if you used water.

How To Make Bisquick Dumplings
Start by mixing together the Bisquick and milk until a soft dough forms. Make sure not to over-mix the dough. (See the recipe card below for the full printable instructions).
Drop spoonfuls of the dumpling dough into boiling soup, then turn the heat down to low. Don’t stir the dumplings at any point. Cook the dumplings uncovered, then cover the pot and continue cooking the dumplings until they’re cooked through. See the recipe card below for the full written instructions, including ingredient amounts, cooking times, and helpful tips, etc.
How Do You Make Bisquick Dumplings That Don’t Fall Apart?
To stop biscuit dumplings from dissolving it’s important to drop the dough into boiling liquid, then immediately reduce the heat to low (if the low setting on your stove is really low, then you might need to use medium-low).
The dumplings need to hit the boiling liquid for the initial cook, but then the temperature needs to drop so that the simmering liquid doesn’t disturb the dumplings so much that they fall apart.
It’s also important to make sure that the ratio of milk to Bisquick is correct. If you add too much milk, the dough won’t be strong enough to hold the dumplings together.
Quick Tip: If you’re still having trouble with your dumplings falling apart, whisk two eggs with the milk, then mix in the Bisquick. The extra binding power of the eggs will really help hold the dumplings together if you’re having a hard time getting the heat settings just right.
Why Are My Bisquick Dumplings Gooey?
To make biscuit dumplings that are fluffy it’s important to not over-mix the dough. Stop mixing once a soft dough forms. If you mix the dough too long, it will create dense and chewy dumplings that will take too long to cook all the way through.
Do Dumplings Float When Done?
I would avoid using the float test with Bisquick dumplings. Instead, insert a wooden toothpick into the center of one of the dumplings. If it comes out clean, they’re done cooking. If it’s wet or gooey, then they need to cook longer.
Do You Cook Dumplings With The Lid On Or Off?
Start by cooking the dumplings with the lid off, then when they’re about halfway finished cooking, place the lid on for the remainder of the cook time.
