  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk, plus more for brushing
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons ground dried sage
  • 2 chipotles in adobo, minced
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons whole wheat flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons snipped chives, plus more for garnish


  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a bowl, whisk the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in the 3/4 cup of buttermilk just until a raggy dough forms.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a work surface and knead just until it comes together. Roll out the dough 1/2 inch thick and stamp out four 3-inch rounds. Gather the scraps and reroll; stamp out 2 more rounds. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet and brush the tops with buttermilk. Bake for 20 minutes, until the biscuits are risen.
  3. In a skillet, heat the oil. Add the turkey; cook over moderately high heat, breaking it up, until browned, 5 minutes. Stir in the sage, chipotles, 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper, and the flour; cook for 1 minute. Add the milk and simmer, stirring, until thick, 5 minutes. Add the 2 tablespoons of chives.
  4. Split the biscuits, top with gravy, garnish with chives and serve.
