Gravy:

Instructions

  • Add the sausage and onion powder into a large skillet and fry, breaking up all the chunks. Season this with salt and pepper cooking until the sausage is browned.
    1 pound ground breakfast sausage, ½ teaspoon onion powder, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 7x11-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
  • Add the quartered biscuits on the bottom of the baking dish.
    12 ounces refrigerated biscuits
  • Spoon the seasoned sausage out of the pan and layer over the biscuits. (leave the grease and a little bit of sausage in the pan to make the gravy later).
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese over this.
    1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • In a separate bowl, break the eggs. Whisk together with milk and brown sugar. Pour this mixture over the top of the cheese.
    6 large eggs, ½ cup whole milk, 1 Tablespoon light brown sugar
  • In the greased skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the flour and allow this to cook for at least 3 minutes.
    3 Tablespoons salted butter, 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Whisk in the salt, pepper, thyme, and milk (slowly). Heat this on medium heat until thickened.
    2 cups whole milk, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper, ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Pour the gravy over the casserole.
  • Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. If biscuits and eggs are not fully cooked, continue baking for 5 more minutes at a time.

Notes

  • How Do I Prepare This The Night Before? Assemble all of the ingredients and then tightly wrap the dish with foil or plastic wrap. Then place it in the fridge overnight. It may take a few extra minutes to bake since the casserole will be starting out chilled.
  • Can I Make This Casserole In A 9×13 Dish Instead? Yes, making this recipe in a 9×13 instead of a 7×11 will work just fine. The casserole will just be a little thinner so it will also cook a bit faster.
  • Is There A Good Substitution For Whole Milk In This Recipe? You can use any milk that you have on hand, I just enjoy the richness of the whole milk. You could even make it richer by substituting half and half for some of the milk.
  • How Do I Store The Leftovers From This Biscuits and 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.
  • What’s The Best Way To Reheat Leftovers? 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. If the leftovers are frozen, place them in the fridge to thaw overnight. Then in the morning, you can wrap the dish tightly in foil and then heat it in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F.
  • Is There Too Much Gravy In This Casserole? There is quite a bit of gravy but it really soaks up while cooking!
  • How Do I Use Packaged Gravy Instead Of Homemade? Just use 1 (2.3oz.) package of gravy, this will make 2 cups of gravy. I’d recommend using a pepper or pork gravy mix for best results.
  • Could I Use “Grands” Size Biscuits In This Recipe? Yes, however, I would suggest cutting each one into 8 pieces. If not they’ll take too long to bake.
  • What Other Types Of Cheese Would Go Well In This Casserole? Monterey Jack, Colby, or gouda would all be a great choice!
