Tips and Hacks
Long sprigs of rosemary tied together make an excellent basting brush for the barbecue. When you're finished basting your food, throw the sprigs onto the coals for added flavor.

Additional Info:

You can also drop the dumpling mixture by the spoonful, directly into your favorite casserole 10 minutes before it finishes cooking.

Fry the bacon to crisp. Drain and reserve the fat. Dice the crispy bacon. Set aside.

In a bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, Tabasco sauce and diced bacon.

In another bowl, combine the scallions, 1 tablespoon of reserved bacon fat, the egg and chicken stock.

Add this mixture to the dry ingredients and mix just enough to blend.

Bring a saucepan of water to a boil and drop tablespoonfuls of mixture into the water. Cover and gently simmer for 10 minutes.

Uncover and cook for a few minutes more, just long enough to dry out each dumpling slightly on top.
