Recipe Tips

- 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.

- 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.

Add a 1/4 cup of shredded fontina cheese after sauce has thickened.

I have picky eaters so I didn't use red bell peppers, but this recipe was still delicious! I wish I had more leftover turkey so I could make another batch! I saved time by using refrigerated biscuits. Super easy, quick, and delicious!!!
