So here’s a question for you all today: Did you know that you can make dumplings in your slow cooker or crock pot? I didn’t until about 6 years ago myself and let me tell you, it changed my meal planning life! How amazing is it in the winter to come home to a hot crock pot full of soup, whip up some dumpling dough, set it on top and then go get everything ready for dinner while they cook on top for half an hour?

Crock pot dumplings turn a soup into a one-pot meal. You don’t have to heat up any garlic bread or get buns to go with the soup. You have your starchy carb right on top of your soup, ready to go.

This post is a redo of an older one here on The Kitchen Magpie. When you’ve been blogging as long as I have, there’s bound to be ugly, sad photos that have excellent recipes hiding among them. Recipes that NEED to be seen, actually. This is a trick that I learned many years ago and use every time I make a stew or soup that I want dumplings on top of.

The slow cooker dumplings themselves are pillowy little dough bites of heaven. Considering the fact that my daughter is a notoriously selective eater, the fact that she asks for these whenever I make a stew should tell you how delicious they are.

Now, these new photos aren’t the best in the world, because well, crock pot dumplings aren’t exactly the prettiest dish in the world. It’s hard to photograph unattractive food.

Crock pot dumplings are pasty pale and white.

Crock pot dumplings don’t have any colored sprinkles or cherries on top.

I know. I’m not doing a good job of selling you on these.

But do you want to know what crock pot dumplings ARE? A lifesaver. Delicious. Easy. And crock pot dumplings are absolutely, without a doubt something that you totally need to try on your next soup or stew this Fall!

    My Mom always added dehydrated onion flakes and parsley to the dumplings! What flavor! Awesome!

  2. Sue McEvoy says

    Really good dumplings for the winter, thanks for sharing A++

  3. Moommist says

    Just what I’m looking for this morning. Boneless pork chops, sauerkraut and topped with dumplings, so yummy!

  4. Maria says

    These dumplings taste just like the ones my mum use to make.

  5. Kate Campbell says

    Love dumplings on stew I just wondered for the steaming process in the crockpot with it sealed should it be in high heat or lower?

  6. Around the World in 80 Cupcakes says

    You’ve read my mind…again \U0001f604. I was wondering if there was a way to add dumplings to a crockpot dish *super high five* \U0001f483\U0001f483\U0001f483

  7. Ethel MacDonald says

    Dumplings are my new thing this winter, go in almost everything lol! We also have a new stove and it has a slow cooker feature 😀 Thanks for the recipe!

  8. SuzyQ says

    The secret to making a photogenic dumpling is to add some dried parsley to the batter.  It adds a nice bit of flavour too!

  9. Richard Reid says

    That stew looks really good.
    Went to your web site but couldn’t find it.
    Link, maybe?

      I honestly love the packaged mix for seasoning for beef stew. Nothing fancy, just beef, veggies and the packaged seasoning. I know, not very foodie-ish but it’s my favourite

    • Richard Reid says

      Thanks Karlynn
      This is one place where I think the so-called food experts on the boob tube insult almost every home cook there is. There is nothing wrong with using canned or most pre-packaged food items. They insult us by turning up their collective noses at things like canned tomatoes when that’s what most of us can afford and, as far as tomatoes go, they’re fresher in the can than the ones in the produce department.

      Richard Reid well I like keeping it real! Some things from the package are the best tasting!
