Gobbler Cobbler


½ pound bulk pork sausage

3 tablespoons butter

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped fresh mushrooms

¼ cup all-purpose flour

2 cups chicken broth

1 teaspoon dried sage

kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste

⅔ cup heavy cream

2 cups chopped cooked turkey

2 cups frozen mixed vegetables, thawed

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 ½ cups heavy cream

2 tablespoons salted butter, melted

1 teaspoon minced fresh parsley

1 teaspoon minced fresh chives

⅛ teaspoon garlic powder


Step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish and line a sheet pan with aluminum foil.

Step 2
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer sausage to a plate and set aside, reserving drippings in the skillet.

Step 3
Melt sausage drippings and 3 tablespoons butter together in the skillet over medium heat. Add onion and mushrooms; cook until soft, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup flour and cook for 2 minutes; mixture will thicken as flour cooks. Stir in chicken broth and continue to cook and stir until flour lumps dissolve and mixture begins to bubble, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and add sage. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 4
Stir heavy cream into the mixture and add reserved sausage, turkey, and mixed vegetables. Adjust seasoning if necessary and pour into the prepared baking dish.

Step 5
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl for topping. Stir in 1 cup heavy cream at first; gradually add remaining cream to form a wet, sticky dough.

Step 6
Drop large tablespoon-sized dough balls on top of the meat and vegetable mixture, evenly spacing 15 to 16 balls in total.

Step 7
Combine melted butter, parsley, chives, and garlic powder in a small bowl. Brush mixture lightly over each dough ball. Place the baking dish onto the prepared sheet pan.

Step 8
Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly and topping is browned, about 45 minutes.

Step 9
Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack for about 30 minutes before serving.
