Turkey with Herb Dumplings

I have been using up stuff from my freezer and I came across a turkey thigh. I usually just roast it, but wanted to do something different. Been thinking comfort food lately so I went with turkey and dumplings- adapting a dish I would normally make with chicken. The end result was really wonderful.

Turkey with Herb Dumplings

1 turkey thigh

1 large onion, chopped

2 ribs celery, chopped

4 carrots, peeled and chopped

3 potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks

4 c. turkey stock

4 T. flour

salt and pepper to taste

1 c. baking mix- like Bisquick- I make my own

1/2 c. milk

2 T. chopped green onion

1 T. chopped parsley

1 t. dried basil

In Dutch oven or large pot brown turkey thigh. Add the vegetables and brown them, too, turning to prevent burning. Add stock, cover pot, and simmer until turkey is tender, about an hour. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the turkey thigh and cut the meat off the bone. Return the turkey meat to the pot. Combine flour with some cold water or more stock until smooth. Add to the pot and stir well. Mixture will thicken. Meanwhile combine baking mix with milk and herbs. Drop dumpling batter by tablespoonfuls over the turkey mixture in pot. Reduce heat to low, cover pot and cook until dumplings are cooked, about 20 minutes. To serve place some of the turkey and vegetables with sauce in serving bowls and top with dumplings. Serves 6.
