Cornmeal bacon dumplings

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ cup Flour
¾ cup Yellow cornmeal
1½ teaspoon Baking powder
1 pinch Salt
½ pounds Bacon; diced and fried until crisp, drained, with fat reserved
¼ teaspoon Tabasco
¼ cup Chopped scallions
1 Egg beaten
½ cup Chicken stock

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

In another bowl, combine the scallions, 1 tablespoon of reserved bacon fat, the egg and chicken stock. Add this 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 enough to dry out each dumpling slightly on top.

Variation: Drop spoonfuls of the dumpling mixture directly into your favorite casserole.
