I got this recipe at a church potluck. All the flavors blend really well. I've made it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. So far every time I've served it, I haven't had any leftovers. Enjoy!

    Advertisement
  • Line the bottom of the prepared baking dish with biscuits.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Scatter sausage over biscuit layer and top with 1 cup Cheddar cheese.

  • Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together in a bowl and pour over cheese layer.

  • Mix water and gravy mix together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until gravy is thickened, 1 to 2 minutes, adding more water for a thinner gravy. Pour gravy over egg layer. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese over casserole.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until egg is fluffy and cheese is bubbling, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Note:

For a little extra spice, add Tony Chachere's(R) Original Creole Seasoning to the egg mixture and/or the sausage while browning it.

Tips

Pioneer(R) Brand Peppered Sausage Gravy Mix is a great option for gravy mix.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

Why on earth would you discard the sausage grease and use packaged gravy? Add a little butter, flour and milk and make your own. This was very good and the concept is great, but I feel it tastes better with fresh gravy. Read More

Made this three times and tweaked according to a suggestion from another recipe. Don't use Grands! It becomes more like a biscuit casserole rather than a gravy casserole and doesn't have that wonderful creamy gravy you want in this dish. Use regular biscuits (I used a 12 oz. can of flaky). I used Jimmy Dean 1/2 hot and 1/2 regular sausage. I also made my own gravy with 4 tbsp butter heated with 4 tbsp of flour and slowly poured in 2 cups of milk , brought to a boil until a creamy consistency and added salt and pepper to taste. I assembled everything in a 9X12 glass dish the night before except for the gravy. The next morning I warmed up the gravy, poured it over the top and cooked for 38 minutes (after the 3rd time, I found this to be the perfect time) SO much better! When I used Grands, my company liked it OK, but when I made it again, they sucked it up with rave reviews. Next time I'll take the suggestion to add the sausage drippings to the gravy. Yum! Read More

Fantastic! I'm going to make this an annual feast. (Just wanted to reassure the food police that I'm not planning to 'obesify' myself or my family) I think it's interesting that the creator was criticized by both sides of the aisle. What?? Not using the sausage fat plus added butter for the gravy?? Using package gravy mix? It continues to amaze me that people feel free to criticize the recipe maker AND infer that readers don't have the sense to know whether or not to serve this to their family. I'll say it again.... The dish was fantastic! Read More

Really good! For those of you asking about Why packaged gravy? Why canned biscuits? Make it how you want - this recipe is intended to be EASY. When you work 12 hours a day, have 3 kids to come home to, you need all the easy recipes you can get. If you don't like a recipe, change it or don't make it. Oh, and I don't even cook my own sausage but use pre-cooked Jimmy Dean sausage crumbles instead, Pioneer packaged gravy mix and Grands biscuits. I do saute some diced vidalia onion to add in.

Yummy!! I made this last week and we loved it so much I am making two pans on Christmas for brunch for my large family. I used Pillsbury Grands Butter biscuits. ( they have visible flecks of butter in them). It's a 14 oz. can. I used the entire can. I tore them into large pieces and scattered them on the bottom of the greased pan. I used Pioneer brand Country Sausage flavor gravy mix and shredded Co jack cheese. Loved it! I will try Sharp cheddar cheese next time just to try it. **UPDATE**. This was a huge hit on Christmas day! Everyone devoured it. Some said they went back for 3rds. I made 2 pans the night before up to the gravy point then I stopped. I covered the pans with saran wrap and refrigerated them overnight. While the oven was preheating the next day I pulled the pans out of the refrigerator and set them on the counter. Then I made the gravy, poured it on top of the casseroles and baked. After they came out of the oven I let them rest for 10 minutes before serving. I also used tin throw away pans you buy in the store for easy clean up. Read More

Did that guy REALLY say that it was irresponsible to publish a recipe like this? LOL Wow, sometimes all you can do is shake your head and walk away. Read More

Excellent !! And Easy Breezy....Well, for once in my life, I made it exactly as the recipe reads. I usually ALWAYS change something or look at several recipes and try to use the best ideas from each. Not this time!! And I agree with some who said why the heck not use packaged gravy and canned biscuits. If you've got time to make your own biscuits and gravy from scratch, go for it. Then write your own recipe and tell us how to make biscuits and gravy from scratch. Easy is why I chose this one. Thank you Angela. Read More

Great and no leftovers. Even picky kid eaters liked it and said it tasted like something Grandma would make. That's a compliment any day! One can of biscuits only covered half the casserole so I used two cans, and I used 7 eggs instead of 6. Otherwise I followed the directions to a tee. I used Grands biscuits and they rose so much that my casserole nearly overflowed. Will definitely make again. Gravy gave it a nice creamy texture that you don't get with more traditional breakfast casseroles that only have potatoes, sausage, and eggs. **Made this second time using Grands Frozen Southern Style biscuits and it didn't turn out as well. It tasted okay but the biscuits rose toward the sides and created a crater of sorts in the middle, causing the gravy to pool in the middle. We still ate it all but I'll just stick to the refrigerated kind like the first time I made it. Read More

I made this as with the exception of making my own gravy from the sausage drippings and added 5 more minutes of bake time. IT WAS DELICIOUS!!! Daughter suggested making a side of gravy for dipping, but we thought it was just fine as is. Highly recommend. Read More
