Breakfast Casserole

A true southern classic turned in to an easy peasy casserole… simply heavenly. If you love biscuits and gravy, this recipe is for you. Have it for Sunday dinner or prep it for a busy school morning, either way it will quickly become a family favorite.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and grease an 8 by 8 inch square pan. Set aside and cut the raw biscuits in to either 6 or 8 pieces, if you have smaller kids I suggest the 8 pieces. These will puff up more than you think so keep that in mind when making bite size pieces. Place the biscuit bites in to the greased pan and set aside.

Next, brown your sausage in a large skillet over medium/high heat. Once cooked, drain the grease and spread over the biscuits. Make sure to spread evenly so that you get sausage in every bite. Set the pan aside.

Whisk together eggs and milk while the sausage browns. After you have poured the cooked sausage in, pour egg and milk mixture over sausage and biscuits. The eggs should not be cooked before baking, they will help hold all the delicious bites together! Sprinkle cheese over top.

Sprinkle the cheese over top and set aside to make gravy. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of butter to your hot pan with the sausage drippings still in the bottom. Once melted add 3 tablespoons of flour until roux forms and add about 2 cups of milk to form gravy. Make sure you like he consistency of your gravy, feel free to add more milk if necessary. Spread gravy over top of biscuits, eggs and sausage.

Bake in the oven at 425 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, or until biscuits pass the toothpick test. Let cool and enjoy!
