Hearty Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Breakfast on the weekend is a big deal in our house. It’s the time we gather around the table with nowhere to rush off too. Breakfast is the time that there are no homework deadlines, bedtime isn’t quickly approaching, and everyone is in a good mood…after mom and dad have their cup of coffee, of course ;). Sunday breakfasts are made to share with family and friends. Sunday morning is when we have our neighbors and their kids over and we all have breakfast together. It’s the one day a week that we can all enjoy each others company and catch up on life. I love creating a new breakfast for us adults, while the kids are insistent on pancakes 😉

Since Sunday morning breakfast starts at 9:00 a.m., I like prepping the night before, the easier the morning is, the better! We have been doing this for awhile now, so I sometimes have a hard time coming up with new ideas for breakfast, so when my son asked me why I never make biscuits and gravy, I decided it was about time. Biscuits and gravy has been a favorite of my whole family’s for as long as I can remember, so I honestly have no idea why I haven’t made it before. I would guess that I always assumed that it was complicated, but I am here to tell you, it’s not.

You only a few ingredients needed for the gravy.  I used the hot breakfast sausage, feel free to use the variety your family will enjoy best.

You will quarter the refrigerated biscuits while your sausage is browning, or after even.  I recommend doing this with a pizza cutter, but scissors would work too.

Once everything is prepped, you start the layering process.  First, layer the quartered biscuits.

Next, pour the egg mixture and the sausage gravy.

How did I manage to make this into an Overnight Bake? I layered all the deliciousness into a casserole dish, covered it, and tossed it in the refrigerator until the morning, then baked it in the morning.  It makes mornings so much easier 🙂

Ingredients
Ingredients For Sausage Gravy:
  • 1 roll (16oz) hot breakfast sausage - you can use mild or any variety you prefer
  • 2½ cups 2% reduced fat DairyPure milk

  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large skillet, brown the sausage over medium heat, breaking it up into small pieces
  3. When the sausage is cooked thoroughly, reduce heat to low.

  6. Turn the heat to up to medium and pour in the half of the milk, stirring to thicken.
  7. Pour in the remainder of the milk, continue stirring for another 5 minutes until the gravy is mixed well and thickened up some.
  8. While the sausage is browning (or after the gravy is made). Mix the eggs, ½ cup milk, and cheese in a large bowl. Set the bowl aside.
  9. Open the can of refrigerated biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters. I used a pizza cutter to do this.
  10. Grease/Spray a 9x13 inch baking pan or casserole dish.
  11. Place the quartered biscuits into the prepared baking dish and spread them out evenly.
  12. Pour the egg mixture over the biscuits.
  13. Pour the gravy over the egg mixture, doing your best to spread evenly.

Notes
If you would like to make this the night before, cover tightly after you added the gravy layer and refrigerate. In the morning, bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes covered and an additional 30 minutes uncovered or until breakfast is hot and bubbly throughout.

I used the 2% reduced fat variety in my recipe, but it is also available in whole, 1% low-fat and skim/fat-free milks.  You can find all varieties in the dairy case at grocery stores nationwide.  I picked mine up at my local Winn-Dixie, but they also carry it at my local Target and Publix.
