Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Dry-fry the mince and onion in a large non-stick frying pan over a high heat. Stir frequently to break up the mince, until well browned. Add the mushrooms and plain flour, followed by the stock and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a simmer, then gently cook for 10 mins.

  2. Meanwhile, to make the cobbles, mix the self-raising flour and thyme together in a bowl. Stir in the yogurt with enough cold water to form a scone-like dough. On a lightly floured surface, roll out to the thickness of about 1.5cm and use a cutter to stamp out 12 x 5cm rounds.

  3. Stir the peas into the mince mixture, then transfer to a baking dish. Randomly place the cobbles on top of the mince, then bake for 20-25 mins, until cobbles are risen and golden brown. This is good served with horseradish sauce.

Sorry but this doesn't look very appetising, I think my recipe for this is much nicer, go to Hubpages.com and look for me, Eileen Goodall and I would love to know what you think.

Good recipe. Can be tarted up with a splash of wine, or some chilli or other herbs. I added a bit of grated cheese to the top of the dumplings and made traditional ones with veg suet as I didnt have yoghurt to hand. Will try the yog versions next time though. used tinned mushrooms - no fresh ones to hand, and i don't think it makes a huge difference in something like this. Would probably add a few more veg, or serve more veg on the side to make it less MEAT!!

Rated for health, as well as for it's lovely flavour. The scones worked so well, like healthy dumplings. I'll do this regularly. I splashed a bit of red in mine. :)

Very tasty and simple to make. A really good weekday supper. I usually find dumplings very tasteless, but these were yummy with the yoghurt and thyme!

This was so easy to make & delicious. I added button mushrooms (instead of chestnut) & baby sweetcorn, as well as the peas Will certainly be making again in the future. It was still yummy as left overs the following day.

The mince part of this was delicious! But the underside of the cobbles were a bit stodgey, did i do something wrong?

Loved this! Very tasty. Great to see a recipe using extra lean mince too - I think it tastes more 'beefy' that full fat or even reduced fat mince.

Froze well, but would recommend popping a bit of foil loosley over the top when reheating as the cobblers will start to over brown!

I used veggie mince for this recipe. Really stodgy and tasteless. I don't know if this was due to the veggie mince.
