Biscuits and Gravy Casserole with Sausage Eggs and Cheese

We’ve been hosting the family Thanksgiving for a few years now. The number of attendees varies from year to year, but our breakfast menu always stays the same!

My Dad is in charge of breakfast, and he makes his famous Biscuits and Gravy Casserole recipe.

This egg casserole recipe is a lot like the bubble-up breakfast casserole recipes that were made famous by Pillsbury and Weight Watchers several years ago. This particular version is so much more delicious as it includes eggs, double the sausage, cheese, and of course, GRAVY!

My Dad assembles the casserole at his house (it’s chaos-free over there) and brings it over to my kitchen to bake.

This Breakfast Casserole is the Perfect Dish for Large Gatherings!

I have quite a few tasty breakfast recipes on this site, but there are two reasons this biscuits and gravy casserole is my favorite: Number one, to save time, you can put the casserole together the night before. (So the only thing left to do the next morning is bake.)  Number two, (and most important), this biscuits and gravy casserole is the perfect delicious combination of all things breakfast, and there are never any leftovers at our house!

  • Biscuits – check
  • Gravy – check,
  • Sausage – check,
  • Eggs, check, check!

These ingredients, separately, are good, but once baked together, they are absolutely delicious.  It’s the perfect all-in-one breakfast and was an absolute hit with our pickiest little eaters.  Every single person that has tried it absolutely raves about it!

Ingredients in this Biscuits and Gravy Sausage and Eggs Casserole:

If you’re heading to the store, and want to make this egg casserole, these are the ingredients to add to your list. (You can find a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.)

  • 8 serving package of buttermilk biscuit dough – we used Pillsbury Grands biscuits today, but regular biscuits work too.
  • 6 eggs
  • Peppered gravy mix – You’ll need at least 2 cups. I linked to my favorite gravy mix, but you can definitely make your own. Many people like to serve extra on the side.
  • 1 lb pork sausage, any flavor
  • 1 cup cheese, shredded – I used a pre-shredded Colby Monterey Jack mix, but shredded cheddar cheese works fine as well, and of course, shredding it yourself from a block makes it so much meltier.
  • 1/2 cup milk – any fat percentage is fine.

How to Make Biscuits and Gravy with Sausage and Egg Breakfast Casserole:

  1. Grease a 13×9 baking dish and preheat the oven to 350. 
  2. Brown the sausage in a large skillet and drain thoroughly.
  3. Cut biscuit dough into 1″ pieces, and line the bottom of the pan.
  4. Layer cooked sausage over the layer of biscuits, then layer shredded cheese over the sausage.
  5. Whisk eggs and milk, add salt and pepper, and pour over biscuit/layers.
  6. Make gravy according to instructions, and pour over everything.
  7. Bake for 35-45 minutes, or until eggs and biscuits are cooked through. 
  8. Serve warm (leftovers are excellent too!)

Recipe Tips

  •  If you choose to prepare this biscuits and gravy casserole the night before, you have two choices, pull the casserole out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter until it comes to room temperature, and then you bake it as usual, or if you bake straight from the fridge, you will need to increase the cooking time by about 20 minutes.  (Keep your eye on it, you want to make sure the biscuits cook all the way and the eggs set completely.)
  • If you find your casserole is getting too brown for your taste before it is cooked through, cover it with an aluminum foil tent to keep it from browning too much more.
  • Like gravy? Consider doubling the amount used in the recipe (or just have some extra for “on the side.”)
  • If you don’t want to make the entire breakfast casserole the night before, you can make just the sausage and gravy the night before. And then assemble everything in the morning. The gravy will be good for up to 24 hours in the fridge. If you find your gravy has gotten too thick, you can reheat it and thin it out with a tablespoon or two of milk.

Variations

  • Use bacon instead of sausage. (or use both, many readers have commented they sprinkle their breakfast casserole with chopped bacon.)
  • Use a different breakfast sausage, like maple or hot and spicy.
  • Use crescent rolls instead of regular biscuits.

FAQs

Can this Biscuits and Gravy Breakfast Casserole be Made the Night Before?

Yes!  This Biscuits and Gravy Egg Casserole is the perfect recipe to put together the night before.

To make it beforehand, cook and assemble all the ingredients, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.  Since the casserole is being baked, starting at a lower temperature, you will need to add about 20 minutes to the cooking time.  All ovens cook just a bit differently, so you will just need to watch it.  If you find that the breakfast casserole is getting too brown for your taste before cooking all the way through, you can just add a piece of “tented” foil over the top for the last several minutes to help prevent further browning.

How do I store the leftovers?

Let the casserole cool completely, and store the leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Can You Freeze this Breakfast Casserole

Of Course!  This Sausage and gravy Egg Casserole freezes beautifully. Two suggestions for freezing…  Make the breakfast casserole per recipe, serve and eat and then freeze leftovers in individual servings.  To reheat, remove from the packaging and cook on 50% power for about 4 minutes or until heated all the way through.

Another option is to bake as directed in a freezer-safe dish.  Let cool completely, wrap well and freeze. Defrost in the fridge the night before planning to eat and then cook for 25 to 30 minutes at 350 until warmed through.

Can I Make My Own Homemade Gravy for this Recipe?

Yes, you can totally make your own special gravy recipe!

Many people do make their own homemade gravy and then often make extra to serve “on the side.”  I don’t make homemade gravy for this particular recipe for time-saving reasons, plus I think the Pioneer brand linked below tastes fantastic and is super easy to make.

(A funny gravy-related comment left on Pinterest: “I made sausage gravy from scratch because it’s too easy not to, and I’d be disowned as a southerner using gravy from a packet! -Kati”)  

Lots of people comment about adding bacon to their versions, too, so you can definitely take this recipe and make it your own.  There are quite a few comments and questions at the bottom of this recipe, but this pin on Pinterest has 173+ comments about all sorts of results, changes, and variations if you want to check it out.

Can I Use Crescent Roll Dough In This Recipe?

I personally have not, but others have commented on Pinterest that they used crescent roll dough, and it was delicious.

Can Biscuits And Gravy Casserole with eggs and sausage Be Made Without The Gravy?

Several people have asked this question, and while I think you probably can, I don’t recommend this Biscuit and Gravy style casserole without gravy, as I would think with all the biscuits, it would be too dry. 

If you don’t want gravy, I recommend a standard egg, meat, and hash brown breakfast casserole (like this one) or a quiche, like this one. (Yum!)

Can this recipe be made in a Slow Cooker?

This question has come up a time or two, but I have not tested the recipe in a crock pot. However, I did have a reader leave this comment: “I made this in the crockpot. I put the biscuits in last and cooked for 4 hours or so on low. Probably had different textures, but it tasted delicious, and the biscuits were done.”

If you try this, be sure to come back and let us know your results.

  1. Delicious!!! I made 1 1/2 times the gravy. Yum!






  2. Randi Ferguson says:

    What are your thoughts on replacing the biscuits with hash browns? I have hash browns on hand in this recipe sounds delicious.

    1. Jamie Sanders says:

      I am sure it will be fine.

  3. I tried this, this morning and it was pretty good! My toddlers love it! I didn’t have canned biscuits, so used English mufffins. Also had to make my own gravy. Didn’t have Colby Jack, so we used sharp cheddar. Thanks for sharing it’s definitely gonna be a keeper






  4. I tried it! It came out perfectly…added hash browns before the gravy






  5. Made this and used Jimmy Dean HOT sausage & regular Country Gravy. It was delicious! Everyone loved it.






  6. How much longer should it be cooked if it’s prepped a few hours prior to cooking?

    1. Jamie Sanders says:

      I can’t give exact times if you are cooking it straight from the fridge as the food temperature and actual oven temps can vary.

      I do recommend taking the casserole out of the fridge about an hour ahead of time and bringing it close to room temp first. This way, it will need less extra time in the oven and help prevent drying out. Otherwise, you can use a thermometer and make sure the internal temp of the casserole reaches 165. And check that the biscuits in the center are done.
      If you find the top of the casserole is getting too brown, gently cover the dish with a piece of foil.

  7. Best breakfast casserole I made ever. Everyone loves it! Thanks so much.






  8. M Jackson says:

    Can I use already cooked biscuits? Trying to get rid of leftovers.

  9. SeattleGracie says:

    A keeper for sure.

    Cinnamon rolls would go wonderful along side as well as sliced bananas and oranges and of course apple cider or cocoa or any warm beverage.

    I made perfectly golden crisp diced potatoes and of course added some caramelized onions to the potatoes. I made plenty of gravy to go along side for topping the potatoes that I made as a side. Plenty leftover for tomorrow morning.

    I made the recipe exactly as it is with no changes. I do like my gravy a bit on the thicker side. I guess you can really just make your gravy as you would for biscuits n gravy. I normally make a sage sausage gravy which you can google a good sage sausage gravy was how I found out about several years ago just trying to change things up some and one day googled biscuits and gravy and made a sage sausage gravy that I came across.

    This recipe most definitely changed my usual biscuit and gravy up.

    This will make a great holiday breakfast like Christmas morning or New Years or nice warm and comfort a breakfast anytime.

    Goodness thanks for sharing.

    My 10yr old daughter who seems to always be hungry and growing these days always asking me to cook for her loved it.

    Absolutely perfect. Thanks so much. 🙂






  10. I made this yesterday and followed the recipe to a tee. It was delicious and my entire family enjoy it. I shared some with my sister and she ate it up before she pulled out of my driveway. I also ate some left orders this morning and it almost tasted as good as when I first cooked it yesterday. Definitely will be making this again.






  11. Lisa Evans says:

    this was breakfast this morning. I didn’t change a thing and it was great. I will definitely be making this again. thank you for sharing :0)






  12. Everyone loved it! Even the kids!






  13. This has become our Christmas morning tradition and it is a favorite breakfast for dinner meal. I make it with homemade sausage gravy. We serve it with oranges. Delish!






  14. Do you cook the gravy before adding it to the casserole?

    1. Jamie Sanders says:

      yes, cook/make the gravy according to the directions of whatever type of gravy you are making.

  15. So good! I made it for breakfast for company. At first, my husband and another one of the men took a very small portion and gave it a funny look, but after tasting it, they went back for not only seconds, but thirds! They love it. All the wives wanted the recipe. Thank you.

    5 stars

  16. Love this! My husband is a bug sausage gravy and biscuut eater and loves scrambled egs as well! So somehow this Sunday morning this rescipe popped up on my Pinterest feed and bingo something new! I used frozen biscuits. Was afraid it would be fummy so I cooked the biscuits in the bottom until soft then pout the rest together.






  17. It’s a keeper! My family loved it, thanks so much for sharing. Went together quick and easy.






  18. Made this for dinner tonight. It was so easy and everyone loved it. Even my 9 month old. My husband already wants me to make it again.






  19. Delicious! Thank you for sharing!






  20. Perfect meal for big groups also good reheated! I’d give this recipe 10 out of 10!
