FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Do I have to make homemade biscuits?

No, however they are simple to make and taste amazing. If you do not want to make them you can use puffed pastry cut into sections or your favorite store bought refrigerated biscuits will also work fine.

Can I use another meat?

Yes, you can substitute the turkey out with chicken. We like to use rotisserie chicken when we swap it out.

What other vegetables can I use?

This is great with any of your favorite vegetables. We like to use frozen mixed vegetables for this recipe but some other ones you can use include: potatoes, brussel sprouts, asparagus, corn, etc.

Is diced or shredded turkey better?

This is a personal texture preference. You can use shredded if you want it spread out more in the casserole or diced for larger pieces in each bite.

Do I have to use buttermilk?

I like to use buttermilk for this recipe as it is richer and helps the biscuits brown nicely. Regular milk will work but you can easily make your own buttermilk at home. To do that for this recipe, take 3/4 cups of regular milk and add it to a measuring cup, add in either 3/4 tablespoon white vinegar or lemon juice and stir. Let sit for 5-10 minutes, stir again and then use.

How do I store leftovers?

This can be stored covered with plastic wrap or foil or in an airtight container in the refrigerator where it keep for up to 3 days. I do not recommend freezing as the texture will change.
