- 1 pound ground turkey
- 1 can (14-ounce) chicken broth
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 2 carrots, chopped (approximately 1/2 inch chunks)
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 stalks celery, chopped
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- black pepper, to taste
- thyme, to taste
- tarragon, to taste
- oregano, to taste
- rosemary, to taste
- FOR THE DOUGH:
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 cup milk
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
Prepare the dough by mixing the baking powder with the 2 1/4 cup of flour.
Using your fingers, rub the butter into the flour mixture until there are uniform granules of butter/flour chunks.
Stir in the milk.
- Knead the mixture with your hands until it holds together in a sticky mass. Set aside.
***Note about making the dough crust: The amount of crust will depend on the type of baking dish you use. For a wide and shallow pan, make the full amount. For a dish that is deep with a relatively narrow diameter, cut the crust recipe in half.
Saute the turkey until almost completely cooked. Remove from the pan.
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter and saute the vegetables (except the peas) until soft. Remove from the pan.
Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, stir in the flour, and cook to form a roux.
Add the broth and seasonings, cooking until thickened.
Put the turkey, vegetable mixture, and the peas in the bottom of a baking dish. Pour the sauce over the filling.
Cover the filling with chunks of the biscuit dough. It's ok if the filling is not completely covered.
- Bake for for 15 minutes, or until crust is firm and somewhat browned.
