Don't wait for "company" to serve this—it's delicious anytime. I found the recipe many years ago in a cookbook sponsored by a local radio program.—Edna Davis, Denver, Colorado

  • In a bowl, combine first five ingredients. Shape into 16 balls. Melt butter in a skillet; brown meatballs over medium-low heat. Stir in mushrooms, soup and water. Simmer 20 minutes, adding more water if necessary.
  • Turn into a 3-qt. baking dish. If extra sauce is desired, combine cream of chicken soup, poultry seasoning and minced onion in a small saucepan. Cook until heated through. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream; pour over meatball mixture.
  • For dumplings, combine flour, baking powder, poppy seed, celery, salt, poultry seasoning and onion in a bowl. Stir in oil and milk. Combine butter and bread crumbs. Drop heaping tablespoonful of dough into buttered crumbs; roll to coat evenly. Cover meatball mixture with dumplings.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until dumplings are golden.
