bisquick

It’s really a two-part recipe.

topping

First make an oniony biscuit, topped with cheese and green peppers.

roux

Then make a lightly seasoned bechamel for your leftover turkey.

Turkey even brought along some shredded carrot to the party.

And only after every thing is cooked do you introduce them to each other. Creamed carrots and turkey, meet giant cheese-topped biscuit.

“I thought you said this was pie?”

“I don’t name ’em, I just cook ’em.”

tasting-pleased

“This is tasty. I like creamy turkey on top of a biscuit.”

Verdict: Tasty!

From the tasting notes:

This isn’t a pie, it’s creamed turkey on a biscuit. Aside from the terminology problem, this was enjoyable. The bechamel would hide bad turkey, and bumps up the flavor of good turkey. Not the quickest way to use leftovers (baking a biscuit and making a roux? sheesh!) but a neat idea.
