We recently got a slow cooker as a wedding present and this isn't something I had ever used before. After making a beef stew, I realised that I didn't have time to add in the dumplings I had previously bought so I sent my husband off to Sainsbury's to find a frozen alternative that wouldn't take as long to cook. He came back with a frozen packet of Aunt Bessie's dumplings. The dumplings come in a plastic packet which has dark blue edges and the colour also surrounds the name of the product. Just above the name of the product is a lovely, inviting looking picture of the dumplings in some kind of stew. From here, they look crispy on the top and cooked ... Read the complete review

After several failed attempts at making dumplings, I gave Aunt Bessie a call and she told me to try her frozen ones, I asked where to get these and she told me all supermarkets sell them! I went into our local Tesco store and picked up a bag of these for £1.25, for this you get eight fairly sized frozen dumplings. These carried the same branding colours, the dark blue background with Aunt Bessies lovely photo, with pictures of the dumplings on top of a pot of stew, so you get a good idea what they look like. When you open up the bag they appear to be much smaller than expected, but as soon as you cook them they soon expand to a much larger size. ... Read the complete review

These frozen dumplings are a BRILLIANT idea! We always have a bag in the freezer now because they're as nice as homemade but loads easier to do and don't make any sticky bowls to wash up! You get 8 in a bag for about £1.25 and the dumplings are quite big, I only have 1 of these dumplings when I have stew because they are such a good size. The dumplings have got a bit of a stodgy texture and that's another reason that I only have 1. I love light and airy dumplings but even though these are loads heavier than the ones I make they're still proper nice to eat. You cook your stew as usual and then put the dumplings on top for the last 40 ... Read the complete review

Aunt Bessie's Dumplings Okay, so I know these are cheating. Every time I mention them in front of my mother, she cringes, but I cannot make my own dumplings, whenever I try, they end up slightly hard and heavy. So, instead, I buy these from my local Morrisons, and this week a bag of 8, cost me only £1 on offer. They normally retail for around £1.50 and are still worth their price. They come in a dark blue bag with the Aunt Bessie's logo and a picture of the dumplings on the front. These are so easy to use, you simply add them to stews or casseroles, cook for a further 20 to 25 minutes and then serve. They are all ready formed and frozen, ... Read the complete review
