Keto Turkey Biscuit Casserole Blog
Thanksgiving leftovers. Do those two words invoke happiness, or dread? For me… Joy. For a day or two anyway LOL. But at a certain point in the days after Thanksgiving , I’ve had about all I can of reheated turkey. That’s when you have to get a little creative and start thinking outside the box.
Last year we shared a recipe for leftover Thanksgiving casserole. But this year, I’m turning to my easy leftover turkey biscuit casserole or gobbler cobbler as I like to call it.
This turkey casserole is very easy, and it’s a great way to use your leftover meat. This is a nice meal to make ahead, too. You can make the turkey filling the day before and refrigerate it until it’s baking time. Just top it off with the biscuits and bake. I really think the butter and herbs brushed over the biscuits make for a beautiful deeper colored crust.
To keep your preparation to a minimum, you can use whatever leftover roasted/cooked vegetables you used for your Thanksgiving meal. It’s a great way to add more flavor and nutrients to this casserole any vegetables were work in this. I chose to use green beans because I love them so much. I also used mushrooms, and they provide a nice meaty feel here.
A Few Thoughts
Fresh herbs. Using fresh herbs is one of the easiest and cheapest ways to take a dish from basic to brilliant. When you move beyond thinking of herbs as mere garnish, and start to see them as major culinary players… A whole world of healthy taste opens up to you. These luscious leaves not only add enticing aroma, but also have remarkable health benefits.
Of course I used this as a leftover after Thanksgiving style casserole. But you could definitely use chicken in this all year round if you preferred.
FOLLOW-UP TASTE TEST by C.J.
The Gobbler Cobbler was delicious! It really was, and the fresh ingredients truly elevated the dish. I loved the mushrooms has well, and the dish was just very warm and comforting, and would be great for using up turkey from the holiday. The only thing missing was the cranberry sauce and we’ve got a low carb keto friendly recipe for that as well.
We gave most of this to my Mother-In-Law, because we made this on a Tuesday night for a Wednesday release video and we didn’t want turkey 5 nights in a row. It was also just something we wanted to do because we wont be seeing them for the 2020 Thanksgiving holiday. We’d love to see your versions of it over on Pinterest, in the Facebook group. or on Instagram.

Keto Turkey Biscuit Casserole - The Gobbler Cobbler
Turkey Casserole Ingredients
- 4 TB butter
- 1/4 onion finely chopped
- 1 cup mushrooms chopped
- 1/4 cup almond flour
- 1 tsp arrowroot powder
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 2 tsp chopped fresh herbs or more to taste
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- 3 cups turkey cooked and chopped
- 1 cup green beans we used canned and drained. Mainly because Sarah loves canned green beans *However, frozen or fresh are lower in carbs
Turkey Casserole Instructions
- In a Dutch oven, or any other oven-safe large cooking pot, melt the butter….sauté the mushrooms and onion until translucent. Add the herbs, almond flour, and arrowroot …..stir well to combine, and let cook for one minute to remove the “flour” taste.
- Slowly stir in the chicken stock and bring to a simmer for 10 to 15 minutes to allow thickening.
- Add the heavy cream and continue to simmer 10 additional minutes. Add turkey and beans. Set aside on low to prepare the biscuit topping.
- Cut (incorporate) the cold butter into the dry ingredients until well combined to a “sandy” texture. You may use a fork, a pastry blender, or your fingers for this step…..Make a well in the center of your bowl….Add the heavy cream 1/4 cup, and egg. stir into dry ingredients, do not over mix.
- Place gravy turkey mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Drop biscuit dough by spoonfuls, or hand formed balls of dough onto the surface of the stew mixture to form an even topping. Leave enough space between dough balls as they will puff up in the oven. Combine melted butter and herbs. Brush biscuits.
- Cook at 375 degrees for 30 to 45 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.
- Serve warm.
