“My mom made this stew when I was young, and it was always a hit. Since it’s not time-consuming to make I can fix it on a weekend for our children, who love the tender dumplings.” —Becky Mohr, Appleton, Wisconsin

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Reserve 2 teaspoons drippings.
  2. In drippings, saute turkey over medium-high heat until lightly browned. Add vegetables, herbs, 1-3/4 cups water and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, until vegetables are tender, 20-30 minutes.
  3. Mix flour and remaining water until smooth; stir into turkey mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Stir in salt, pepper and bacon.
  4. In a small bowl, mix biscuit mix and milk to form a soft dough; drop in 6 mounds on top of simmering stew. Cover; simmer 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in dumplings comes out clean. If desired, sprinkle with pepper and parsley before serving.
