Grab a can of refrigerated biscuits to get started with this easy Biscuits and Gravy Casserole Recipe! The biscuits are then cut into quarters and are assembled as the base layer in this casserole.
Shredded cheddar cheese is then sprinkled over the cut-up biscuits. Afterward, cooked ground breakfast sausage that’s seasoned with onion powder, salt, and ground black pepper is layered on top.

To make this, you’ll need salted butter, all-purpose flour, whole milk, salt, ground black pepper, and dried thyme.

Make Ahead Instructions for Sausage Gravy Casserole
Assemble all of the ingredients and then tightly wrap the dish with foil or plastic wrap. Then place it in the fridge overnight.
It’s VERY important to note that if you prepare it in a ceramic or glass dish, it will need to sit at room temperature for a bit to avoid shattering when put in a hot oven. It also may take a few extra minutes to bake since the casserole will be starting out chilled.
How To Store Leftover Sausage Biscuit Gravy Casserole
Simply wrap the baking dish with leftovers tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap. Then store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
The leftovers can also be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months.
How To Reheat Biscuits and Gravy Casserole
If the leftovers have been stored in the refrigerator, you can just transfer a serving to a microwave-safe plate. Then pop them in the microwave to be heated.
