Turkey Pot Pie with Garlic Biscuit Topping
I first made this recipe when Grumpy and I were trying to not buy groceries at the store due to our upcoming move into our new home. Having to pack and haul groceries was something I didn’t have the desire to do. For this reason, I made do with the ingredients I had on hand when making this casserole dish.

I had some leftover turkey and gravy in the fridge and decided to pull what I had together to make a pot pie. To make it a little more special, I decided to use a cheddar garlic biscuit topping similar to what you get at Red Lobster with their biscuits. I originally did not brush the biscuits with a garlic butter topping but have updated my recipe to do so since.


Turkey Pot Pie with Cheddar Garlic Biscuits - Shallots

It doesn’t take all that long to whip this recipe together. I use fresh shallots to add some flavor and saute them in butter, then add in the mixed veggies and chopped turkey.

I chopped up about 3 cups of turkey breast, opened a bag of frozen mixed vegetables, and since I was low on gravy, grabbed a can of condensed chicken soup to add to the mixture. To thin the gravy down a little I added a little bit of milk to the filling mixture and salt and peppered to taste.

Turkey Pot Pie Gravy Tip

If you find you have at least 2 cups of gravy leftover, then skip the condensed chicken soup and use just gravy! When I created this recipe, I used the chicken soup because I didn’t have much gravy.

Tips for making the cheddar biscuit topping to get the best results!

  1. Use shred your own cheese. I like to buy the brick of cheddar and shred it myself. I feel the cheese has better flavor.
  2. Toss the shredded cheese into the flour mixture before adding the liquid ingredients. This will individually coat each shred of cheese with flour and keep the shred separated during baking.
  3. Don’t over stir your biscuit dough. Stir only until the dry ingredients have been combined with the wet. Overstirring causes a tough biscuit. 
  4. Be sure to whisk your wet ingredients together well before adding to the dry ingredients and add the wet ingredients all at once to your dry.

How to make sure your cheddar garlic biscuit dough will cover your entire dish

To keep your biscuits uniform, you will want to use a large tablespoon to drop the biscuits over the batter. Evenly distributing the batter over the turkey mixture ensures the biscuit will spread while baking to fully cover the casserole.

Tips for an added flavor boost to your casserole

  1. Add some flavor to your biscuit dough. I do this with garlic powder. Feel free to experiment and add some other flavors. Sage and Onion powders are a good idea to start with!  
  2. Give your topping another boost of flavor by brusing the biscuit topping with a garlic butter mixture as soon as the casserole comes out of the oven.
  3. Don’t skip the salt. A little bit of salt does a lot of wonders. If you’re watching your sodium count, you can use a reduced sodium salt, but don’t skip it. The flavor will not be there if you do.

    What a comforting dish! Congratulations on finding a new home! Best of luck with the inspections and the close!

    This sounds delicious! I'm so happy you have finally found a new home. About 17 years ago, we began a search for either an existing home, or a place where we might find a wooded lot on which to build our 'dream home'. At the time, we were living in Franklin Pk., here in IL and had been there for almost 39 years. After a couple of years of searching high and low, I discovered a small town, west of Naperville, called Yorkville. When I say discovered, that's exactly what I mean, never having heard of it before. I found a lot in a very small subdivision of 21 lots, with only one existing home at the time. We were fortunate in finding a small local builder, who built us a home, that today, we still live in and love. Hopefully, this new home will be all you desire and will love it as much as we do ours. I wish you and Grunmpy, the happiest of Holidays and a wonderful 2014.

    What/how big is a can of almond milk? I’ve never seen it in cans, but in varying size paper cartons, the smallest of which is 32oz, I believe.

      Hi Whitney, I should have been more specific. I used half a can of almond milk (I poured almond milk into the half of the soup can)so approximately 5 ounces.

    Can I just use the refrigerated pillsbury biscuits I have and maybe cut them in half and set on top of the pot pie mixture?

    • Shelby December 5, 2018 at 5:30 pm - Reply

      Hi Brianne, yes, you can do that! Enjoy!
