What is a dump recipe? Cause it sounds so appetizing right?!?! A dump recipe is something where you can put all the ingredients in at once and walk away. You literally dump it all in and done! Which makes it so much easier because you don’t need to stand there and stir, or add then wait 10 minutes and add that.
