Turkey Leftovers…Turkey-n-Biscuits

Here’s the Turkey-n-Biscuit recipe I promised you! If this doesn’t sound good…there are 19 other turkey ideas here. And if none of those sound good…you seriously need to put the rest of your turkey in the freezer and go make yourself a hamburger. With onion rings.

But, if you can handle another meal of turkey, I think you’ll really like this dish: 

Turkey -n- BiscuitsYum

2 cups cooked turkey
3 cups turkey broth
4 medium potatoes, diced
3 carrots, diced
2 cups frozen peas
2 T. arrowroot powder
1/3 cup water
sea salt 

Stir together the arrowroot powder and water in a glass or a jar until arrowroot powder is dissolved. In a large pot, bring the broth to a boil. Stir arrowroot powder and water mixture into the broth. Continue to stir until broth thickens. Add turkey, potatoes, carrots and peas. Salt liberally. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down and cook vegetables until they are tender. Pour into a casserole dish. Top with whole wheat sourdough biscuits rolled very thin. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 –30 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.  


So have you all been eating bunches of turkey lately, or are you on to other meats? Why is pork called the “other white meat”? Sorry, that was random.

    I made this last week. I had planned to invent some kind of white sloppy joes but then I saw your post. The filling was very yummy but I did something wrong on the biscuits and they did not raise. They had a nice flavor but were of hockey puck consistency. I must not have had any yeast in the air to “catch”! Sniff.I will make it again but will probably have to use a good old white biscuit recipe.

    Yumm. . . I have made this dish two times and my three boys love it. While making it today with my 12 yr old son, he noted that the recipe did not tell him when to put the 2 C. turkey in;).

    Made this last night with chicken, turned out great! I made the biscuits about 1/4 inch thick, and it was too thin, next time I will not roll them quite so thin. I used a regular oval casserole dish, but think I will use something bigger next time so I can put more biscuits on it! Whole family liked it though, so that makes it a winner.

    Do you think this will freeze okay?

    If you are making it ahead to freeze I would wait to put the biscuits on
    until you are going to bake it. I am not sure the baked biscuits would
    reheat all that well. My concern is that they would dry out when you reheat them.
    Although, it may be just fine…:) That is sort of a scatter brained answer
    so I hope it helps. ;)

    How many people does the Turkey-n-Biscuits serve?? (Or what size casserole dish will I need to bake it?)
    Thank you!

    I’d say this would serve about 6-8. I usually use a 9×13 pan, but that’s almost too big. :)

    Laura, thanks for your reply to my question!

    I just recently discovered your website, and I LOVE it!! I’ve decided I absolutely HAVE to cut back on my expenses this year (am living on Social Security) and your recipes and ideas are a wonderful help in that direction! Preparing larger meals and freezing some for later helps sooooo much with the grocery bill!

    Thank you, thank you!
