GROUSE & DUMPLINS'

This recipe is soooo good. The dumplins' are so light. I use buttermilk in the dumplins' where it calls for water. These are good served with a dinner salad & veggies on the side.
You can also eat it as a soup.

In large bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Make a dough by adding lukewarm water slowly until proper consistency is reached. **I use buttermilk instead of water. Bring stock used to cook grouse to gentle boil and drop dumpling dough into liquid using a tablespoon. Remove finished dumplings and set aside.
