Very few ingredients and a simple technique make this recipe a winner. 

Let's get started and gather up some ingredients!

Total Cook Time: 1 hour and 30 minutes (approximately)
Bake Time: 1 hour
Preheat Oven: 425 degrees

4-5 medium size potatoes
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
2 cup Self-rising flour(Martha White or White Lily)
3 tablespoons shortening(I prefer butter flavored Crisco)
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt for dumpling plus approximately 1 tablespoons to flavor potatoes
black pepper season to taste
water-enough to boil potatoes in

1. Slice potatoes into disc and onion into rings
2. Place potatoes, onions, salt, and pepper in a medium pot. Fill pot approximately 3/4 full with water.

3. Bring to boil. Turn temperature down to a rolling boil for about 15 minutes.
4. Prepare dumplings by combining flour and salt in mixing bowl. 
5. Cut-in shortening.
6. Add buttermilk a little at a time while stirring with a fork. When dough will follow fork around the bowl there's enough milk.
7. Turn out on board, kneading just a little. Roll out and cut into squares.

6. Add dumplings to potatoes. Be very careful not to get burned by bubbling. Turn down the temperature on the potatoes if there's a danger of getting burned. The mixture will get quite thick and extremely hot.
7. Turn temperature down to a simmer after adding all your dumplings. Simmer approximately 5 minutes or until thickened.

These potatoes & dumplings could be served as is and be quite good but to achieve the brown crust you'll want to pour it in your dish to bake.

8. Pour in dish.
9. Bake at 425 degrees for 1 hour or until top is browned over.

Do enjoy!
