Ingredients

Sausage Gravy

  • 1 pound breakfast sausage we prefer the original Jimmy Dean sausage but any breakfast sausage will work
  • 6 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 5 cups whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Casserole

  • 1 can Pillsbury Grand Biscuits
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded

Instructions

Sausage Gravy

  • Crumble the sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat, breaking it up with a wooden spoon and cooking until browned.  
  • Decrease the heat to medium and sprinkle the flour over the cooked sausage, stirring and cooking for 1 minute.
  • Add the milk, 1 cup at a time, stirring between each addition to let the milk combine with the flour and thicken.  
  • Add the salt and pepper and continue to cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes until the gravy has thickened.

Casserole Assembly

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F if baking immediately.  Spray the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Open the can of biscuits and use scissors or a knife to cut each biscuit into fourths, then arrange on the bottom of the baking dish.  
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and black pepper, then pour over the biscuits.  
  • Sprinkle the cheese over the biscuits and eggs, then pour of the gravy over everything.  If making ahead, cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes in the preheated oven until browned on top and cooked through.  If the casserole has been made ahead and refrigerated overnight, add an additional 20-25 minutes to the baking time.
