This will satisfy your dumpling urges. You can use this “Fat Head” dough for all sorts of dumpling filling. I have tried beef, pork, shrimp mixtures, Asian style and so much more. Easy and delicious. I like to serve these with grass fed sour cream or Polish sour cream cucumber salad
NOTE* On this recipe you must use low moisture part skim mozzarella.
