Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Casserole
I love it when a brand new recipe turns out even better than hoped for. That’s what happened when I made this Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Casserole for a Ladies’ breakfast at our church a few weeks ago. I was looking on Pinterest ahead of time to find assorted breakfast casseroles to make because they are easy, can be prepared the day ahead, and the gal who recruited me for this job wanted “protein.” I stumbled upon this recipe and it really intrigued me, so I decided to give it a go. I just couldn’t resist the idea of making a layered breakfast casserole that tasted like eating biscuits and gravy.
As it turned out, the Ladies’ Conference was first postponed, then delayed, and finally shortened due to several ice and snow storms that whipped through Dallas for several days during that period. (Yes, you heard that right, Dallas and ice storms!!!!) I had all this food prepared and the roads were too icy and dangerous to travel on, so the food was delayed an additional 24 hours and served on Sunday instead….but this time, not just for the ladies but for the whole church!
I made sure all the guys coming through the food line saw this particular casserole out of all the different ones I made and asked them to try it. I surveyed at least 20 people and without exception, everyone LOVED it. Not only that, even the kids and gals who tried Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Casserole enjoyed it as well.
I actually made two large casseroles for the church (equivalent to three total casseroles) and one casserole for us. I baked the one for us after about 5-6 hours of refrigeration and all I can say after eating one bite was that this casserole really delivers. It’s like eating biscuits and gravy, but the eggs and cheese add a delicious twist by making this more like a breakfast casserole. My husband also had several large servings.
Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Casserole is absolutely one of the best breakfast casseroles you’ll ever eat. If you like biscuits and sausage gravy, then you’ll love this version with eggs and cheese added. It’s a great breakfast idea for holidays like Easter or Father’s Day, or other special occasion brunches or breakfasts. After you make up a batch for your family, I believe you’ll agree.

Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Casserole is one of the best breakfast casseroles you’ll ever eat.
Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Casserole is made with biscuits, sausage, cheese and pepper gravy. It has one of the most marvelous flavors and textures of any breakfast entree you’ll ever eat. No kidding!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients.
Spray a 9×13″ glass baking dish with cooking spray. Unroll a can and a half of Pillsbury’s Grands, Jrs. Biscuits. Cut each biscuit in quarters and place on the bottom of prepared baking dish.
Brown sausage and drain. Crumble into small pieces and sprinkle over top of biscuits.
Spread cheese over top. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Whisk eggs and milk together and pour evenly over top.
Prepare sausage pepper gravy according to package directions. Heat water in saucepan and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, mix dry gravy mix with cold water and whisk to combine.
Once water comes to a boil, add moistened gravy mix and whisk continuously until mixture thickens.
Pour thickend gravy mixture over top of cheese layer. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (You can also bake this immediately, if desired). If you bake immediately, you will only need to bake for 30-45 minutes at 350.
Bake at 350 about one hour or until hot and bubbly.
We found this Sausage and Gravy Breakfast Casserole absolutely incredible.
