Buttermilk Biscuits with Turkey Gravy made with over-sized homemade buttermilk biscuits topped with a creamy and savory ground turkey gravy.



For the Biscuits:

  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 Stick Butter (Soft)
  • 2 tbsp Sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tbsp Melted Butter

For the Gravy:

  • 1 lb. Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp Red Pepper
  • 1 tsp Cilantro Flakes
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 cup Organic Milk
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 4 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt


  1. In a large bowl, add flour, stick of soft butter, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and buttermilk then stir with a large fork until ingredients begin to bind. Form into a large ball and break into 3 even pieces.
  2. In a large baking sheet (paid link), coat with butter then form each of the 3 balls of dough into biscuit form. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees, brush each of the biscuits with melted butter, and bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Set to the side when done.
  3. In a large bowl, add Ground Turkey, Ground Cumin, Paprika, Red Pepper, Cilantro Flakes, Sea Salt and Black Pepper then mix them together well. Add 1 tbsp oil to a medium pre-heated cooking pan, add turkey mix, then cook for 5 minutes or until done.
  4. Remove cooked meat from pan then add butter to the pan and lower heat to medium/low heat. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute then add flour and stir until it begins to bind. Add milk, buttermilk, grated Parmesan cheese, paprika, black pepper and sea salt then cook until it binds.
  5. Once it binds, add the pre-cooked ground turkey meat and mixed all ingredients together.
  6. Place biscuits on serving plate and top off with gravy sauce. Serve hot.


When kneading the biscuits dough, be gentle as over-kneading can make the biscuits hard and tough.
