  • 1 pound bulk breakfast sausage

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 ¼ cups milk

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper, divided

  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened

  • 6 large eggs

  • 1 (16.3 ounce) can refrigerated biscuit dough

  • 3 cups shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter the bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook, crumbling with the back of a spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat to medium and sprinkle flour evenly over sausage. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add milk and stir, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook, stirring often, about 7 minutes. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Remove from heat.

  4. Crack eggs into the prepared baking dish and whisk in remaining salt and pepper until well blended. Cut each biscuit in quarters and arrange in a single layer over eggs. Sprinkle 1 1/2 cups Cheddar cheese over the biscuits. Pour sausage gravy over the cheese and spread evenly. Top with remaining cheese.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden and bubbly, 25 to 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
