Easy Barbecue Turkey Buns

As I mentioned in my previous post, we are STILL enjoying our leftover Thanksgiving Turkey now, a couple of weeks after the day. I've tried two new experiments this year with the leftovers...this recipe is much easier than the first but both are totally delicious! Seriously, this one is easy easy easy. For Chinese food or dim sum fans, this is a very close cousin of those delightful Chinese Barbecue Pork Buns. This one uses store-bought refrigerated biscuit dough, and takes less than five minutes of prep time, and only twelve minutes cook time. Hope you try it!

Easy Barbecue Turkey Buns


 You will need:

1 tube refrigerated biscuit dough (8 biscuits)
1 1/2 cups leftover cooked shredded turkey
1/2 cup barbecue sauce

Mix turkey and barbecue sauce until well combined and set aside. Separate the biscuits. Cut a small hole in the side of each biscuit, and fill with a heaped tablespoon of the turkey mixture. Pinch the hole shut. Once all are filled, steam these for about 11 or 12 minutes in a cooking-spray coated foil-lined bamboo steamer or whatever you normally steam veggies in. The buns will puff up to around two and a half times their size and firm but springy to the touch when done. Enjoy!

Note: regular biscuits (non-flaky layers) work best for this recipe.
