friedstripsDumplings don’t just make a wholesome meal… they make even better dessert! Just take out frozen dumplings, cut ’em in squares, fry ’em up, and roll them in the sweet confection of your choice for a fast treat that’s easy and delicious to boot! We’ll even show you how to make “Pie in a Dish” with Anne’s Dumplings!

Ingredients:

  • 1 box Anne’s Dumpling Strips
  • 1 Can of Dessert Pie Filling (if using  dessert option)

Topping Variations of Your Choice for Fried Dumplings:

  • Sea Salt, Parmesan Cheese, and Popcorn Seasoning Salt.
  • 1 cup of Powdered or Granulated Sugar with a few drops of lemon, orange, or rum extract
  • Granulated Sugar/Cinnamon Mixture

Instructions:

Fried pastry strips may be used like crackers or served as dessert. Preheat oil in deep pan or fry daddy type appliance to 400 degrees. Using strips that are partially thawed cut each strip while on the paper sheet into 4 squares with a pizza cutter. Carefully drop 12 squares into oil and quickly start stirring with a slotted spoon. Squares will puff up like pillows. Cook until light brown, remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Sprinkle with seasoning(s).

OR

Dessert Variation: Cut each strip into 10 pieces and fry. Coat with granulated sugar/cinnamon mixture. Using a canned pie filling, warm filling in a bowl in microwave.

In a dessert dish place 4 fried strips and top with the pie filling mixture. Ice cream anyone???

Egg Gravy!

Egg Gravy

Somehow we never seem to have enough gravy to last through the remnants of leftover turkey and so here is a simple recipe that will make using leftover turkey a snap.

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 T  Anne’s Chicken Base
  • ¼ cup corn starch
  • Salt, pepper, ½ t poultry seasoning if desired

Instructions:

In a 2 qt saucepan put the water, chicken base, and chopped eggs. Bring to a boil.

Add 4 T water to the corn starch making a slurry .Slowly add this to boiling mixture stirring as adding. Mixture will thicken. If you need it thicker add more cornstarch slurry; thinner, add more water. Taste for seasoning. Add salt, pepper, poultry seasoning if desired.

Dish Suggestions.

Open faced turkey sandwiches- a good way to use the small pieces as you clean up the bones. I like to make this with slices of French Bread buttered and toasted. Just put your turkey pieces on top of the bread and ladle hot egg gravy over the top. So good!

Turkey hash- another way to use the leftover turkey pieces. I like to add giblets to my egg gravy for this dish if I have any.  Chop turkey meat and add to egg gravy. Ladle over rice or mashed potatoes.

Turkey dressing casserole- Dressing is favorite holiday dish and sometimes I will freeze about 2 cups of chopped turkey to make this dish later. Make your favorite dressing recipe, stir in the thawed chopped turkey and bake. Make the egg gravy above and when casserole is done, cut into squares, put on plate and ladle hot egg gravy over it.
