I was digging through my old recipes and I came across this recipe that my mother used to make. These were something she always made for any type of gathering back in the 70’s and 80’s. She may have made them more recently than that, but I can’t remember having these for years.
Since I remember loving them at the time as did everyone else, I thought I would reminisce a little and give them a try. The little piece of paper I have didn’t have many instructions so I am not exactly sure if the way I made them was the exact way my mother made them, and unfortunately I can’t ask her.
The only biscuits I could find were Pillsbury Grands and I don’t believe those were around back in the day. If you can find the regular Pillsbury biscuits I think they would be better.
1 pkg. biscuits
1/2 lb. hamburg (or ground turkey)
1 1/2 celery stalks, chopped
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 tsp. garlic, minced
1 tbsp. soy sauce
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. corn starch
salt and pepper to taste
In a frying pan over medium heat cook the hamburg (or turkey) until no longer pink. I used ground turkey. Drain any excess liquid and set the meat aside on a plate.
Spray the pan with cooking spray and cook the celery, onion, and garlic until tender. There are no onions in mine because my son doesn’t like onions. I used a little onion powder, but onions would be best.
Add the meat back into the pan along with all the remaining ingredients and combine well. Cook on low/medium heat for 5 minutes.
Flatten the biscuits and make sure there are no holes and put a heaping tbsp. of the meat mixture in the center of each biscuit.
Fold the sides over and seal.
Put the biscuits rough side down onto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
My mother used to serve these with mustard, which is what I did. Yummy!
