There are times when the most simple of recipes is simply the best. This Creamed Turkey on Biscuits is one of those very recipes.
Every Thanksgiving when I make turkey, even if we aren’t expecting a big crowd, I will make the biggest turkey I can find.

After the turkey is made and the feast is over, there are gobs of leftover turkey meat to be frozen in portions for future meals. This recipe is a perfect use for some of that turkey. But even if you don’t have turkey, you can make this with some leftover chicken from your next meal as well. It only takes minutes to make this, so it is perfect for any busy evening.
Watch Me Make This Recipe:
You’ll start off the way any good dish starts – with melted butter in your skillet.
The melted butter will give way to a simple gravy that you will add shredded cooked turkey to.
You can serve this yummy gravy on toast if you like, but I highly recommend making some of my baking soda biscuits.
This dish is rustic, yet my husband and son had seconds & thirds of it the last time I made it. Rustic & Simple. Nothing beats it.
