If you want to talk about an incredible recipe, let’s talk about these Chicken and Dumplings, because, wow.  These are Drop Biscuit style dumplings with fresh chopped vegetables and breast meat from a roasted chicken.  The dumplings are seasoned with herbs and the roasted chicken was marinated in a 24 hour brine, so this recipe is incredible.

Growing up, I didn’t much like dumplings; at least the way my Mom made’em.  I’d dare say they even made me feel sick.  So when I started out recreating this recipe I had one simple goal in mind; make something I LOVE!  So I roasted the best chicken I could make, I made the best vegetable soup I could come up with and I added the best drop biscuit recipe I had and Viola, this Chicken and Dumplings recipe was born.

This Hamburger Pizza recipe is amazing and it will trip you out if you’ve never had one before. It’s absolutely the best of both worlds, “Fo-Show”! This Pizza tastes just like a double bacon cheese burger, it’s that good! But don’t take my word for it.  This recipe is built exactly like a hamburger from the bottom up, only upside down.  So think of the Pizza crust like a hamburger bun, then work your way out from there and you’ll get the picture!
