This is a wonderful recipe that I've been making for years. Not bland at all. And it doesn't even use white potatoes so I don't know what the previous reviewer was referencing. A delicious mix of veggies, sauce and cornbread. A keeper.
This recipe is *really* bland - but worthy since it's a great way to use and eat veggies and the dumplings are so easy. Next time I make it I will use less white potatoes (they overwhelmed a bit), more seasonings of some sort, and I will add some herbs to the dumplings. The dumplings would be great on a meat-based casserole or on top of beans.
