Vegetables, green onion and cubed turkey are cooked together in a savory gravy and then topped with cheesy crusted biscuits in this super recipe. I found this disguised as a vegetarian recipe and adapted it to my own likes and dislikes, and came up with this means to use all that leftover turkey that Thanksgiving and Christmas gives us.

I do love recipes for leftover turkey because we all like to try new things, and we all have the turkey leftovers that we don’t want to waste after the huge Thanksgiving feasts we indulged in.

This is suitable for a day after Thanksgiving meal, but also a “warm you up” wintertime meal.

If you like, you can substitute, if you select a decent cut of round steak, cube and brown it, and use 1 and 1/2 cup of beef boullion rather than the turkey broth.

If you have no leftover turkey, chicken breasts cubed will work just as well.

1 tbsp olive oil

1 clove of garlic, crushed

2 celery stalks, chopped

8 green onions, sliced

2 carrots, sliced

1/2 cup frozen or canned green beans

1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)

To make topping, sift flour and salt together, and rub or cut the butter in. then stir in most of the cheese, and and the oregano.
