Turkey and Sage Biscuits Casserole

Anyone tired of Thanksgiving leftover yet?

Today marks the 4th consecutive day of me eating a Thanksgiving meal for dinner.
I think I could eat a whole Thanksgiving meal again tomorrow, because that's how much I love Thanksgiving. I practically ate the whole pot of cranberry sauce right after I made it.

I guess the only thing I hate about the big meal is dealing with the carcass. I absolutely hate shredding/pulling meat, like shredding chicken for tacos and getting all the meat off the turkey. I hate doing that. Thank goodness Jake was kind enough to do this one abhorring and mundane task. The carcass sat in my fridge until Sunday when I finally took the time to make at least 5 quarts of stock out of it.

Numerous food bloggers and recipe websites have posted on what to do with Thanksgiving leftovers, me included came up with a recipe.

This biscuits over turkey leftover is an idea from Jake's family. I bought a package of fresh sage for the turkey, and used the remaining for these savory biscuits. The flaky texture of the biscuits contrast well with the soft texture of the leftover turkey mix.

Turkey and Sage Biscuits Casserole
See this post for biscuits recipe. Add a tablespoon (or more for taste) of finely chopped fresh sage to when mixing dry and wet ingredients.
(or use pre-made biscuit dough)

1/2 cup gravy
3/4 cup turkey stock
1-2 cups shredded turkey
1 cup stuffing
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped onions

1. In a sauce pan, combine gravy and turkey stock. Bring to boil and simmer until liquid thickens. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat oil and add in celery, carrots, and onions. Cook for 10 minutes or until slightly softened. Add turkey and stuffing. Cook for another 10 minutes.
3. Add sauce to the turkey mixture in the large pan, mix until well combined. Transfer into a 13 x 9 baking pan. 
4. Arrange biscuits evenly over the turkey mixture, about 15 biscuits. Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes or until the bottom of biscuits are not doughy.


  1. I love biscuits on top of casseroles and these look so good! Nice and fluffy. I could take Thanksgiving recipes all year long. :)

  2. This looks great...but I can't pin it. :(
