How to make Cotswold dumpling:
Dumplings with a cheese flavor and an unusual toasted crumb coating. Even more unusually these dumplings are cooked by frying.

2 tablespoons suet
1 tablespoon grated cheese
water to mix
breadcrumbs from 3 slices of bread, toasted
fat for frying
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Mix all the ingredients together, except the breadcrumbs and fat.
- Add enough cold water to form a slightly sticky dough.
- Form into rounds and roll in the lightly toasted breadcrumbs.
- Fry in hot fat until crisp and golden brown.
- Drain on kitchen paper.
