  4. Bake: Top with prepared biscuits and bake for 30-40 minutes in a preheated 400˚F oven.  Serve warm.

Notes

  • Always make your biscuits first.  Lay the cutout biscuits on a cookie sheet and store in the refrigerator until you’re ready for them.  This ensures the butter stays cold to keep the flakiness.
  • This recipe makes 6 cups of filling.  My cast iron skillet was just big enough but it did boil over just a bit.
  • This recipe is best enjoyed fresh because the biscuits have more texture.  However, you can store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
  • You can use fresh vegetables in this recipe as well!  Just combine your favorites with the filling.
