This biscuit 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 is 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.

Update on this recipe from Miss Information Reader Lee – Just wanted to let everyone know that this delicious 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.
