I made this recipe last night, following the directions exact, plus reading previous reviews for “what not to do” and my crescent roll dumplings failed miserably and just stayed mushy. I assume, since my crockpot is an older version and only has a low/high setting, that the crock didn’t get hot enough to “cook” the dumplings, on high, for the last hour of the cooking process. I WOULD make this recipe again, only this next time, pre-baking my dumplings & then adding them to the turkey mixture the last half hour…I would recommend pre-baking your dumplings to anyone who has… Read more »
Hi – Thanks for sharing your experience, Shayna. Did you make sure to leave the lid on the entire time the dumplings were cooking? That could affect it too. (heat escaping) I have also found that the older slow cookers don’t get nearly as hot (presumably for food safety reasons) as newer models so I appreciate you providing feedback for those who may have an older crock. I hope you have a more successful outcome next time. Happy Crocking!
Yes, I followed the directions exact, (no peeking and lifting the lid while the dumplings cooked), so I do believe my crock doesn’t get as hot as it should, considering it is older. This also helps me moving forward with your future recipes using my older crock. I will have to be a little more creative and maybe cook things a little longer than usual…and maybe Santa will bring me a new crock this year, lol 🙂
how do you pre-bake the dumplings.
I can’t get that brands of seasoning here. What other seasoning can I use? Anything from clubhouse?
