Last week I found a recipe for a breakfast casserole using gravy and biscuits and it was good, but I was missing the eggs! I decided to make my own spin on it and make it a little more traditional or a little more southern should I say. Biscuits with country gravy are one of my all-time favorite breakfasts and I will order that over anything given the chance. If you like biscuits and sausage gravy you are gonna LOVE this biscuits and gravy casserole.

This biscuits and gravy breakfast casserole is light and fluffy, honestly, it's just right.

The biscuits come out airy and browned. It has everything you want in a southern breakfast including fluffy eggs, sausage, and creamy country gravy. It's a southern breakfast in one dish and it might just make you want to become a southerner if you're not!

I use pre-cooked sausage crumbles from Jimmy Dean to save time but you can cook up a roll of sausage first if you wish.  I use my favorite kitchen shears

to cut up the biscuits and it takes me about 10 minutes to throw this breakfast casserole together.

I make this biscuit and gravy casserole with Pioneer Brand Country Gravy Mix, it is the best country gravy mix I have found. I prefer the peppered variety but if you don't like a lot of pepper just go with the original.

Biscuits and Gravy Casserole with Sausage

Biscuits and Gravy Casserole

  5. Sprinkle with Cheddar Cheese.
  6. Whisk eggs and milk with a pinch of salt and pepper and pour it over the biscuits and cheese.
  7. Make Gravy mix per package directions and drizzle onto the casserole.

Update on this recipe from Miss Information Reader Lee – Just wanted to let everyone know that this delicious biscuits and gravy casserole recipe freezes amazingly. I’ve had it in the freezer for a little over a week and it comes out almost exactly like it was fresh if cooked on 1 lb defrost in the microwave. Of course, reheating this in the microwave is going to make the biscuit part drier than it was when it was fresh, but it doesn’t change the consistency of the recipe enough that it’s not still amazing. I’ve got the casserole cut up into bar-sized portions and I would recommend putting a portion in the refrigerator overnight to avoid having to heat it up in the microwave for so long or perhaps to cook it covered on the stove top on low setting.

Can you make this in a crockpot?
Hi Kaye, I tried it once and it did not do well, it was overcooked and hard on the bottom. If you figure out the secret please share it and I'll add your comment to the post as an update!
Hi Kelley! I just have to thank you for this recipe! I've made it dozens of times. At home, for a breakfast potluck, while visiting my sister, at family get togethers. EVERYONE loves it. I love that it's so easy to put together and I don't have to slave in the kitchen to make a meal to feed a lot of people. It's now a go to for me, my coworker and my sister! So thanks again, I love this recipe!

Can that biscuit be reheated by oven? If yes, how the aluminum foil be used when the biscuits are reheated in oven? Thank you very much.
Yes, it can be reheated and I would cover with aluminum foil to keep it from browning further. You can also scoop some onto a plate and microwave it to reheat it.

I love this recipe more than others, but need to make this for work! Can this be done in a crockpot so it will be hot when it is time to eat?
I tried it in a crockpot once and when it was on warm it dried it out and shriveled up. I have used a thermal casserole carrier with heat packs with success before.
David Gegenhuber says:
I found that when microwaving a leftover portion, the biscuits can be kept moist nicely by covering the plate with plastic wrap. This recipe is great in its pure form, but with the egg mixture, it's so easy to make "omelette" variations (small can of mushrooms, finely chopped onion and even finely chopped green pepper would work well)
EVON SANDERS says:
I just love gravy and biscuits and so does my husband. I fix it for him every now and then. I plan on fixing it for him on Christmas morning. It's like a routine here in our home on Christmas morning. I hope this turns out OK!!
I've never had it turn out bad, it's pretty simple so you should have no problem. I hope you enjoy it, buiscuts and gravy are my favorite!
What size roll of Grands biscuits do you use? 8 ounces? 16 ounces?
Christine Titus says:
Such an easy recipe to put together. I served this wonderful breakfast casserole for dinner (we love breakfast for dinner). It is absolutely delicious! The Fab Fam loved it!
How many does it serve?
Just wanted to thank you for this recipe, it has become a family favorite of ours that I am sure I'll still be making for years to come.

Lee, thank you so much for this tip I will add your advice to the post! I'm so glad you enjoy it!
Amber Layton says:
We've always liked the Pioneer peppered gravy mix and now with your brilliant casserole, we can get it all in one pan and no more dirtying 2 skillets and a saucepan. You are fantastic--thank you!!
Patricia Diaz says:
This recipe was super delicious and easy to make! (No changes needed) We absolutely loved it definitely a keeper. Cant wait to share this recipe, thanks!
Carlene DesJardin says:
Thank you so much for this recipe! I have never had luck with breakfast casseroles - always gummy or runny in the middle, I had just about given up. I made this for breakfast this morning and I am literally jumping up and down like Tom Cruise on the sofa - it WORKED! It was amazing! No gummy biscuits, it was delicious. Everyone needs to try this recipe :)
Ha Ha Tom Cruise that cracks me up! THANK YOU for your sweet comment and I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
Where is the recipe I don't see it
Hi Brandi, we were changing recipe plug ins to provide you a better experience it's up now.
Jalene Rende says:
Love your posts and recipes. Thank you! I am a stepmother too.
Hi, do you throw in cooked sausage with grease and all or separate out? If you don't throw grease in do you ever make sausage gravy from it instead of making the pack variety? Thanks for your help!
Hey, Dan if you cook sausage instead of using the precooked crumbles you will want to drain it first. I have not tried to do that but I'm sure it would be delicious! You will want to have about 1 1/2 cups of gravy if you make it that way.
Denise lemke says:
How would you go about making this in a crockpot? Baking times, etc..... I tried this in the oven and loved it so much, thought I would give it a try to feed guests coming for my daughters wedding.
Hey Denise, I tried it in a crockpot and it overcooked when I set it for 6 hours on low. IF you can hook your crockpot up to a timer I would try it on low for about 3 hours and that should do it otherwise everything else should be the same. Let me know how it works.
This was great! I made a few changes by making my own gravy, and layering it biscuits, gravy, cheese, eggs. I loved it!
We loved this idea so much! Looks delicious and it's just perfect for back to school ideas for breakfast. We found it on Pinterest and shared your blog with our readers.
Hi! Just wondering if anyone has tried this in a crockpot overnight? Mornings are a bit hectic around here and I was looking for something to take to a brunch right after the kids get on the bus. Making it in a crockpot would be the easiest way to get them and me out the door w/my sanity intact!
Not that I know of. If you have a Ninja you for sure could because it lets you bake. I am sure it would do fine you would just have to watch it. My guess is that it would take about 2 -2.5 hours but again that is just a guess. Let me know if you try it and I will add those directions to the post!
is this dish really "eggy"?
shannon canary says:
This the best casserole there is!! A friend of mine brought to work and everyone wanted the recipe..delicious!!
Thank you so much Shannon, glad you enjoyed it. It will be perfect for the upcoming holidays!
Hmmmmm... I didn't notice any "nutrition facts" offered with this. Was that intentional?? =)
You are so right! A lot of the times I'm prefer NOT too know the "nutrional information"! I would much rather enjoy it and not worry with all those " silly details"!! Haha
Hello, a friend of mine just got out of surgery, all of us lady friends are putting together meals for the family, Would this freeze ok?
I have never tried it but if you do please let me know! I hope your friend is doing well.
Margie Hastings says:
Could this be frozen? I am looking for additions to my once a month cooking recipes. :)
I have never tried it but I don't see why not. Give it a go and let me know how it turns out.
did it work to freeze it
Sounds delish! Do you use the 5 or 8 count pack of biscuits?
I made this dish this past weekend and it was soooo delicious!!! I prepared it the night before, cooked it at the same temperature and time as in the recipe the next morning, and it came out perfect! :)
Kelley Wilson says:
Thanks Lindsey, I'm so glad you enjoyed it and good to know you can do it the night before!
Can you freeze it without baking it first, then pull out of freezer and bake when you want?
Thank you for sharing your experience with making the night before. I have a breakfast feast to prepare for co-workers and am happy I don't have to wake at 5 am to prepare this. I hope it turns out as yummy as everyone says.
This looks amazing! Im allergic to eggs and its really hard for me to find breakfast foods without eggs. Would you be will to share the original recipe that doesn't have eggs? Thanks
Kelley Wilson says:
THank you Mandi, if you click on the link in the first sentence where it says "this recipe" it will take you to it!
My daughter has been wanting biscuits and gravy for awhile now. I decided to make this "breakfast for dinner" tonight and they family loved it. Now we have leftovers for breakfast tomorrow morning! I served this with a fruit salad. It was easy to put together. I will make it again.
msinfoblog says:
I\'m so glad they liked it, thanks for coming back to comment. Yes I often heat mine in the microwave the next day.
I made this for brunch today and it was delicious! My three young boys loved it too. I used the frozen bag of Pillsbury biscuits just because I love the way those biscuits taste on their own. I let them thaw completely though and then cut them up. I also used half and half instead of milk. I will definitely be making these again!.
msinfoblog says:
Thank you Michelle for popping in to let me know! I\'m so glad you enjoyed it!
YUM! We loved this and I'm making it again tonight. It did dirty more dished than I like to wash, but it's worth it. I also felt like the ingredients went further than if I cooked them separate. Yay!
CAN YOU MAKE THIS THE NIGHT BEFORE? THANKS
msinfoblog says:
I have not ever made it the night before because it\'s so quick to put together but I would assume you could
I'm making this right now! I'm so excited about it! I added hash browns in mine along with everything else. The house smells amazing, and my belly is grumbling. I can't wait!
msinfoblog says:
Oh what a great addition! Let me know how you liked it
It was AMAZING!!!! Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!
msinfoblog says:
Yea, glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for letting me know.
About how many servings does this make?
msinfoblog says:
It depends on if you serve anything with it, I would say 8 if it\'s by itself
Could you use bacon or sliced ham and turkey in place of the sausage?
msinfoblog says:
Sure you can also use bacon, ground lean beef, chicken or turkey
Cassandra says:
Do you make the grave then pore over i mean cook it first thank you
Yes make the gravy according to package directions then pour it over
So I want to male t his and was wondering on the gravy do you mix it with the water then just pour over biscuits with cooking the gravy cause I assume it will cook up in the oven
msinfoblog says:
Hi Lisa, I have never tried it that way, I always cook it on the stove top before I pour it over so that it thickens and is well blended
stephanie says:
Has anyone assembled this the night before and baked the following morning? Just wondering how this tastes best -- if assembling the night before do the biscuits still bake and get fluffy after sitting in the eggs & gravy all night? Thanks -- can't wait to try.
msinfoblog says:
I have never tried it that way because it is so quick to throw together in the morning. Some of my readers have tried it and not had any issues.
Can this be made the night before & baked in the morning?
msinfoblog says:
Yes it can, hope you enjoy it!
Karen Rossi says:
Love this!!! added a small can of diced green chiles to the egg mixture and used 1 cup of milk instead of water to the gravy packet...Yum!!! My 16 year old grandson's favorite!!!
Peggy Trudell says:
Could you make your own gravy for this?!?! And, how much gravy is needed?!?! Thanks...
Kelley Wilson says:
Yes you can it's about 1 to 1 1/2 cups
I have gluten free biscuit mix that I would have to use.... could I just do little balls or drops in the bottom of the pan? otherwise, this sounds AMAZING!
Kelley Wilson says:
I don't see why not as long as it is raw biscuit dough it should be fine. Let me know how it turns out and I will put an update at the end of the post!
Shiloh Barkley says:
So I made it, with eggs, and now I'm confused about your comment about why you couldn't make it because you didn't have eggs on hand, but you did make it with eggs?!
Kelley Wilson says:
LOL I didn't say I didn't have eggs on hand, I said I tried another recipe and the link to it is at the top of the post and she did not use eggs in hers, she used potatoes. I said I was missing the eggs when I made HER recipe so I made this one with eggs.
Shiloh Barkley says:
I like this better than the one with eggs. I don't like the extra potato either she put in it...

This was amazing, I made this for breakfast this morning, the house smelled wonderful as it baked and it was delicious, this casserole included everything we love in a Sunday breakfast!! Thank you for sharing, we can't wait to share your recipe with family and friends later this week through our blog Rezich Family Kitchen on WordPress. Nancy R.
Kelley Wilson says:
Thanks Nancy I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Anonymous says:
What size pkg of the gravy mix. I buy a different brand and it makes 2 gallons. About how much gravy is there once you make it. Maybe 2 cups, 3 cups?
Anonymous says:
I wonder if you can add potatoes to this?
Kelley Wilson says:
I am sure you could but I would add a little more gravy or egg so it's not to dry
Shiloh Barkley says:
The original recipe she provided the link to is made with potatoes.
Kelley Wilson says:

Kelley Wilson says:
Thanks Vicky, Oh I miss my Mops days! I hope you all enjoy it!
Anonymous says:
Do you cook the gravy or just mix it and pour over? Thanks
Kelley Wilson says:
You cook it but it is just boiling water and adding the packet and stirring, really easy
Linda malsbury says:
UhOh.....just read this. I have this recipe in the oven right now BUT I did NOT cook or thicken gravy before pouring over the casserole. Just wisked gravy package together with the milk/water solution and poured it over. Do you think it will need more baking time? I guess I will find out. We love breakfast casseroles and wanted to try this one. Thanks, Linda
Kelley Wilson says:
LOL I did the same thing one time Linda and it turned out fine! Hope you enjoy it!
Harley Mama says:
Looks awesome - question though, you don't bake the biscuits before assembling this dish? Thanks!
Kelley Wilson says:
Nope no need and you don't have to soak it overnight like most egg casseroles
Shiloh Barkley says:
Not to be lewd, but how big was your sausage package?
Kelley Wilson says:
OMG you just gave me the biggest laugh!!!!! It was what they call a roll package, link to see here <a href="http://jimmydean.com/products/Sausage/Roll-Sausage/http://jimmydean.com/products/Sausage/Roll-Sausag... />
