I remember my mother making this when I was a child and I saved her recipe. Along the way, the recipe was lost until now when I found it here. This is a great tasting casserole and I've served it as a company dish as well as for Holidays.

This is easy and fairly quick. The best dumplings I've ever tasted. They turn out crisp and delicious every time. I've even substituted chicken for beef. It's excellent and freezes well.

I used to make this recipe for my 3 sons, back in the early 90's. It was always a hit. I tweaked it to their taste. It was a very filling meal for 3 growing teens.

My family loved this dish! I wasn't even born in 1956, so this is a 2009 kinda perspective.
I won't eat veal, so we made this with beef stew meat, and cooked it until tender. I don't know if they even sell "bottles of onions" but that didn't appeal to me, so I chopped 1 large onion, and 2 ribs of celery and sauteed it with the beef, and added a full handful of baby carrots at the end when the beef was tender. I followed the directions as written, and topped it with the sauce at the end as directed.
It was soothing, hearty, and delicious. I think beef, venison, pork, or chicken would do very well in this recipe. It has *man* appeal too, and my children voted with their lips. Yummy.

I first made this recipe immediately after it was announced the 1956 winner. My family loved it then and still loves it. It is absolutely wonderful! I skipped the sauce because we decided it didn''t need it. It''s excellent.

I''ve made this dish many many times and it is absolutely delicious. The biggest con is that It is very time consuming to prep (it takes me much longer than an hour to prep it) but the end result makes it worth it. The sauce makes the dish, in my opinion. Personally I like to add the dumpings first and then pour the cream of chicken soup over everything. I find this makes the dumplings a little more moist. I''ve also made it with chicken instead of veal and it''s just as delicious (and cheaper!). I serve this dish with rice and it''s a hit every time.
