Turkey biscuit filling

Instead of the traditional pie dough, this recipe requires Pillsbury jumbo biscuit dough.  The individual servings are a great alternative to this otherwise traditional dish that allow the food to be transported for on the go activities.

Take each Pillsbury dough piece and roll it out. Next place a spoon full of the filling onto each flat round and close it shut but pinching the ends together.

Finally, in a cast iron skillet or any foil pan, lay the filled pies with the closures facing down.  Make sure there is room between the dough balls as they will grow throughout the grilling process.

Last but not least, brush some melted butter on top of biscuits that will create a nice crispy flaky layer and season with Italian seasoning.
