What do I need to make Bisquick dumplings?
This dumplings recipe requires just three ingredients:
- Italian seasoning
Now, the Italian seasoning obviously isn’t necessary but I like to add a flavorful pop to my Bisquick dumplings.
If you need to, you can substitute a non-dairy milk or water for the milk, or even chicken broth for extra flavor!
I’ve added lots of other flavorful mix ins down below!

How do you make dumplings?
Dumplings — whether the homemade version in this Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings or these Bisquick dumplings — are easy to make!
- Combine Bisquick (or other dry ingredients), milk and Italian seasoning.
- Stir until combined but don’t overmix — you want just all of the Bisquick to be absorbed, but no more or you’ll make them tough.

How do I cook Bisquick dumplings?
One of the best things about dumplings is they add something special to so many different meals — soups, stews, chilis, pot pies, you name it. Almost any of these soup recipes will work just fine as a base.
Spoon by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a pot of simmering pot of saucy deliciousness, cover with a lid, and let cook until golden brown.
Here are a few of our favorite ways:
- Drop onto One Pot Chicken Stew, cover and cook
- Swap the traditional chicken for this Classic Beef Stew

Tips for making the best dumplings:
- Make sure your soup or stew has a good amount of liquid. Don’t push the dumplings into the soup but make sure to add a bit of extra liquid before adding your dumplings if necessary.
- Since Bisquick has baking soda in it, an acidic ingredient will react with it to make them rise. This is why buttermilk is a great swap for regular milk!
- If you want a golden crust on your dumplings, your best bet is to bake or broil them. For even more browning action, you can add 1 tablespoon of oil to the dumpling dough before scooping onto the soup.
