About Bertolli Pasta Sauce

Incorporating Bertolli Pasta Sauce into your recipe rotations is an easy, time-conscious way to create delicious meals without skimping on flavor or quality ingredients –  I keep several Bertolli sauces stocked at all times for this exact reason. I chose Bertolli® Rustic Cut™ Roasted Garlic Marinara Sauce for this recipe because it’s filled with thick cut vegetables like celery and carrots that complement the roasted turkey perfectly. Plus, the aromatic roasted garlic adds an extra layer of savory flavor to the ‘gravy’ topping the biscuits. Add a sunny-side-up egg and you have the perfect brunch!

Key Ingredients in This Recipe

  • Turkey – Use leftover slices of turkey from Thanksgiving dinner or use slices of roast turkey breast or even. deli turkey in this flexible recipe.
  • Biscuits – I like to make a batch of buttermilk biscuits in advance so this breakfast can be easily assembled in the morning. While store-bought is fine making your own is very easy.
  • Eggs – Add either a sunny side up or over easy egg over the top of the biscuits and gravy. The gooey yolk combines into the tomato based “gravy” for a rich and satisfying sauce.

How to Make Brunch Buttermilk Biscuits with Turkey and Southern Tomato Gravy

For the buttermilk biscuits:

  1. Heat oven. Heat oven to 425ºF (218ºC).
  2. Make the biscuit dough. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl. Add the butter to the bowl and use a pastry cutter or a fork to cut the butter into the flour. Do this until the mixture resembles rough crumbs and the butter is still in pieces. Make a well in the center of the flour and add 1 cup of the buttermilk and honey, stirring with a wooden spoon until a loose, sticky dough forms.
  3. Shape dough. Turn the dough out onto a clean, lightly floured surface. Use your hands to shape the dough into a rectangle. Fold the dough over itself like an envelope then reshape again into a rectangle about 1-inch thick.
  4. Cut biscuits. Repeat folding and rolling out the dough once more. Use 3-inch round cookie cutters to cut out about 9 to 10 biscuits, re-rolling out the scraps as needed. Arrange in a 12-inch cast iron skillet, (they should be touching).
  5. Bake the biscuits. Brush the tops with the remaining buttermilk. Bake until the tops are golden brown, about 20 minutes.

For the gravy:

  1. Heat sauce and add cream. Add Bertolli Rustic Cut Roasted Garlic Marinara Sauce to a medium saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until warmed through. Whisk in the heavy cream and set aside until ready to use.

For serving:

  1. Cook the eggs. Heat a large non-stick sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and heat through. Crack 2 of the eggs in the pan and cook until the whites are just set, but the yolks are still gooey.
  2. Season the eggs. Season with salt and pepper then remove to a plate and cover to keep warm. Return the pan to heat and repeat with the remaining oil and eggs.
  3. Assemble and serve. Cut the biscuits in half and top the bottom half of each biscuit with slices of turkey. Ladle the tomato gravy over each and top with a fried egg. Prop the biscuit top on the side and garnish with parsley. Serve immediately.
