Ingredients Needed

  • Biscuits – Refrigerated canned biscuits or biscuit dough.
  • Sausage – Ground breakfast sausage. Substitute turkey sausage or ground beef if needed.
  • Shredded Cheese – Sharp or mild cheddar cheese tastes best to me.
  • Seasonings – Salt, black pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Pantry staples – Large eggs, all purpose flour, unsalted butter, milk.

For the full recipe and detailed baking instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post.

How to make Biscuits And Gravy Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a 9×13 casserole/baking dish with nonstick spray. Cut biscuits into quarters or tear into large pieces and place in a single layer in the bottom of the casserole dish.
  2. Cook the sausage in a large skillet and remove to paper towels to drain when no longer pink and cooked through. Sprinkle 1 cup of the cooked sausage over the top of the biscuits in the pan.
  1. In the skillet where you cooked the sausage mixture, add the flour and butter to make a roux. Pour in the milk and bring to a simmer to thicken and make the gravy. Add in the remainder of the cooked sausage meat and stir to combine
  2. Sprinkle half the cheese over the sausage and biscuits. Pour gravy in and spread into an even layer.
  1. In a bowl, combine the eggs and 1 cup of milk. Whisk to break up eggs and mix with the milk.
  2. Next, pour the egg mixture over the gravy.
  1. Top with remaining cup of cheese. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until eggs are set. I start checking around 20 minutes just to be sure.
  2. Remove and let cool for 1-2 minutes. Serve warm.

What To Serve With It

This Biscuits and Gravy Breakfast casserole is perfect for breakfast, brunch, or dinner.

For breakfast, I suggest some crispy bacon and fresh fruit.

For brunch or dinner, you can serve with sides like hashbrown casserole, green beans, or a salad. Make it a complete meal and serve it with this Healthy Coffee Cake for dessert!

How long does it last?

Store any leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 3 days. Reheat in a microwave or oven at 350F until warmed through.

Can I make this ahead of time?

Casseroles usually are even better when you make them ahead of time! Assemble up to 2 days ahead of time and store in the refrigerator.

Remove and let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes and then bake as usual.

Can I freeze it?

You can certainly bake and then freeze this Biscuit and Gravy Casserole. I suggest cooking the recipe as usual. Then portion into individual servings. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and then aluminum foil and freeze for up to 2 months.

To reheat, remove from the freezer and reheat in the microwave on 50% power for 3-4 minutes until warmed through.

You can freeze it whole in the casserole dish after baking. Just wrap the dish tightly and freeze. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes or until warmed through.

Best Casserole Tips

  • Use pre-made gravy or use a packet of pepper or sawmill gravy mix. (That’s not cheating, you’re making it at home 🙂 Homemade sausage gravy if you have a family recipe is the best!
  • I use a packet for extra gravy to serve on the side.
  • Gravy can be made with ground pork, beef, or ground turkey. You can even toss in some cooked bacon. Because it is just a fact that bacon makes everything better.
  • Add some red pepper flakes to your sausage if you want a bit more heat from the peppery sausage.
  • Make sure to spray your casserole dish with a light coat of cooking spray so you can serve and clean up more easily.
  • If it gets too brown while cooking, cover with aluminum foil.
  • The casserole is done when the eggs are set, it is “puffed up,” and the edges are starting to brown.
