Biscuits & Gravy Casserole
This was a huge hit for the whole family. I am constantly looking for options for meals that I can prepare ahead. In fact, prepping breakfast is my new Saturday night tradition, oh how times have changed. Luckily this will provide breakfast for at least one more day.

Lender of the recipe: https://www.scatteredthoughtsofacraftymom.com/sausage-and-gravy-breakfast-casserole/
- 16 ounces of buttermilk biscuit dough (cut into 1’ cubes, precision not necessary)
- 6 eggs
- 1 (2 3/4 ounce) package peppered gravy mix (makes 2 cups)
- 1 lb sausage, any flavor
- 1 cup cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup milk
- salt and pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 13×9 pan.
- Brown the sausage in skillet and drain thoroughly.
- Cut biscuit dough into 1″ cubes, and place on the bottom of the pan.
- Layer cooked sausage over the biscuit pieces.
- Layer shredded cheese over sausage.
- Whisk eggs and milk, add salt and pepper and pour over biscuit/layers.
- Make gravy according to instructions, and pour over everything.
- Bake for 1 hour 5 minutes or until eggs and biscuits are cooked through. I recommend letting it brown for a little bit of crisp.
- Serve with some fresh fruit &/or juice.
Now Let’s Dish: I usually make my gravy from scratch so I was hesitant on using the packet kind. Although it was a different flavor, it was still really delicious. Since I prepared it the night before I cooked for an additional 20 minutes. They recommended tenting with foil but I thought it would be better a little crispy and it was. Perfect Sunday morning care-free breakfast.
Served with: Sumo Oranges
*Lesson Learned- You can tell if an egg is still fresh but placing in a bowl of water. Fresh- Sinks to the bottom on its side. Not as fresh- Sinks to the bottom on one of the egg ends. Time to toss- Floats.
