There’s nothing quite like having a lovely breakfast on a weekend morning. What’s even better is when you’ve already done all of the prep work the night before, so all you have to do in the morning is preheat your oven and bake it off. This biscuits and gravy casserole is the perfect overnight breakfast recipe that’ll fill tummies right up.
The gangs all here in this easy breakfast casserole – biscuits and gravy, sausage, eggs, cheese… it’s a complete breakfast all in one dish.
This is a great recipe to alter to suit your preferences. You can use regular or turkey sausage, homemade or frozen biscuits (or canned, though I’m not a fan of the texture of canned biscuits in casseroles), and you can choose your favorite milk, cheese, and gravy. Make it your own, because you really can’t mess it up!
And if you want to add even more flavor, try adding fire-roasted red peppers and sauteed onions, yum! Enjoy!
|Biscuits and Gravy Breakfast Casserole|| |
- 8 frozen biscuits, baked and cooled
- 1 lb ground sausage of choice, cooked and drained
- 6 large eggs
- salt and pepper
- ½ cup milk of choice
- ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 packet peppered or country gravy mix, prepared as directed (about 2 cups of gravy) and cooled slightly
- Cut cooled biscuits into fourths (or just tear them apart) and arrange them in a large square baking dish that has been well greased. Sprinkle the sausage over the biscuits.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, generous sprinkles of salt and pepper, and the milk. Pour the mixture into the baking dish, top with cheese, and then pour the gravy on top of everything.
- Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.
- In the morning, preheat the oven to 350F. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until gravy is heated and bubbling and the eggs are set. I like to use a butter knife to gently cut into the casserole to peek at the egg layer.
- If the biscuits begin to brown too much during the baking process, tent with aluminum foil.
- You can use any sausage you wish, including turkey sausage. You can also use link or sausage patties, just cut them into smaller pieces.
- The gravy I like to use is the Pioneer brand, though you can easily use 2 cups of your favorite homemade country gravy as well.
