Expert Tips

Poultry seasoning is a blend of herbs and spices such as thyme, sage, marjoram, rosemary, black pepper and nutmeg. Each of these seasonings goes well with poultry; mixed together, the combination provides a subtle, complex flavor the individual seasonings do not have on their own.

Just before serving, sprinkle the dumplings with chopped fresh parsley.
