Ingredients

Biscuits

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter cut into chunks

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

1/2 cup milk

Turkey

1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 cups chopped cooked turkey or chicken

1 1/2 cups Land O Lakes® Half & Half

1 cup frozen peas, thawed

1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 450°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Place 1 1/4 cups flour, baking powder and salt in bowl; cut in 1/4 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add cheese; mix well. Stir in enough milk until dough just sticks together.

  3. STEP 3

    Drop dough onto ungreased baking sheet into 6 mounds, 2 inches apart. Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Loosen with spatula; remove from baking sheet.

  4. STEP 4

    Melt 1/4 cup butter in 3-quart nonstick saucepan over medium heat until sizzling; add onion and bell pepper. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 3-5 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper until well mixed. Stir in turkey, half & half, peas and hot sauce; continue cooking, stirring occasionally, 3-5 minutes or until bubbly and thickened.

  5. STEP 5

    Split biscuits; place bottom halves of biscuits onto each of 6 serving plates. Spoon mixture over biscuits. Top with top halves of biscuits.

Tip #1

- Use your favorite part of the turkey for this recipe. Either dark or light meat will work. Some prefer the appearance of white meat in the creamy sauce.

Tip #2

- If you have leftover biscuits, just heat them in the microwave for a few seconds the next day. Serve them for breakfast or with dinner.
