Turkey Biscuit Bake
1 Cup Baby Carrots, halved lengthwise
1 Cup Parsnips, julienned
1 Tablespoon Water
2 Cups sliced fresh Mushrooms (I omit these and use extra Carrots and Parsnips, or substitute with Celery, frozen Green Beans or Corn. Just make certain that you have a total of four cups of veggies)
2 Tablespoons Butter
1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 teaspoon Seasoned Salt
1/8 teaspoon Pepper
4 Cups Milk
Seasonings to taste: Poultry Seasoning, crushed Rosemary, Celery Seed, Chili Powder, etc.
3 Cups diced cooked Turkey or Chicken Breast
1/2 Cup frozen Peas, thawed (or Corn)
1 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Cake Flour
3/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/8 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Buttermilk
1 Tablespoons Butter, melted
In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the Carrots, Parsnips, and Water (and Green Beans, if using); cover and microwave on high for 4-5 minutes or until tender. Drain and set aside.
In a large non-stick skillet, saute Mushrooms (or Celery) in Butter until tender. Combine Flour, Salt, Pepper, Seasonings, and Milk until smooth; stir into Mushrooms (or Celery). Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the Turkey, Carrots, Parsnips, (Green Beans), and Peas (Corn). Transfer to a greased 9 x 13 dish.
In a mixing bowl, combine the Flours, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, and Salt. In another bowl, combine the Egg, Buttermilk, and melted Butter; stir into dry ingredients just until a soft dough forms. Drop dough into eight or nine biscuits onto Turkey mixture. Bake at 425* for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into biscuits comes out clean and biscuits are golden brown. Serves 8-9.
"[The elder women] may teach the young women to
to love their husbands,
to love their children,
to be discreet,
keepers at home,
obedient to their own husbands,
that the word of God be not blasphemed."
Titus 2: 4 & 5
This is a good, veggie-full casserole (can you tell I don't like mushrooms). I like to mix up the casserole part on Saturday and refrigerate it overnight to help speed along Sunday dinner. When we come home all I need to do is preheat the oven, mix up the biscuits and place them on top. While this is baking, mix up a simple salad and dinner is done!
