Valentine's Lunch - Heart Shaped Biscuits and Spicy Gravy

We enjoyed the heart shaped aspect of our V-Day breakfast so much we decided to include it in lunch as well. I was in charge of the biscuits, and Jeff made the gravy.


The biscuits were simple. I used my favorite biscuit recipe (the recipe included on this post) and cut them out with a heart-shaped cookie cutter. Since my heart cutter is larger than my biscuit cutter, I did have to cook the biscuits about a minute longer than suggested. They turned out very fun!


For the gravy, Jeff used a simple white sauce to start with, then dressed it up. He added shredded turkey and frozen peas, then went wild with seasonings, adding salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, celery seed, and turmeric (which gave the gravy a nice yellow color and a flavorful kick). This was a delicious meal (I absolutely love biscuits and gravy), and Zaylee was once again excited at the prospect of eating heart shaped food.

Those biscuts look delicious! Were they from scratch? You said you were posting your favorite recipe, but maybe you meant the "& gravy" part.

And love those hearts!

Oops, I meant to include a link to a previous post that had the biscuit recipe. Thanks for pointing it out. It has been fixed!
