Country Sausage Biscuit and Gravy Breakfast Casserole

I found a recipe for a biscuit and gravy breakfast casserole. It looked so good, but when I got into the recipe it was obvious that the recipe did NOT match the picture. That is the problem with some food sites. They take a picture from someone and just find a recipe with the same ingredients! That is why so many people get frustrated when their dishes look nothing like the pictures online! As I have said, "My food might not be pretty, but it usually tastes pretty good!" LOL

2 cups Sausage Gravy, recipe below
1 lb. pork breakfast sausage
1 cup Cheddar Cheese
6 eggs
½ cup milk
Salt and Pepper
1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray a 13X9 pan with non stick cooking spray.
Cut the biscuits into 1" pieces and line bottom of pan.
Brown the sausage and scatter over biscuits, reserving the grease for the gravy below. Sprinkle with Cheddar Cheese. Ladle in the sausage gravy.
Whisk eggs and milk with salt and pepper, and pour it over the pan.
Bake in the oven for about 30-45 minutes or until golden brown and set.

Sausage Gravy

1 lb. pork breakfast sausage* 
3 T grease rendered from the sausage 
1/3 cup all-purpose flour 
3 cups milk 
2 T black coffee OR 1 beef bouillon cube 
1 T Worcestershire sauce 
1/2 tsp salt 
1/4 tsp black pepper

Brown sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the sausage from the pan with a slotted spoon leaving the drippings in the pan. Stir the flour into pan with 3 T of sausage drippings and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown. Gradually whisk milk into pan.

Cook until mixture begins to simmer, then add sausage*, coffee/bouillon, 
Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper to pan. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until thickened.

*When Making the Casserole, do not add the sausage to the gravy. Top the biscuits in the 13X9 pan with the sausage.

  1. Pinterest is terrible about that. I always end up googling the recipe to see if I can find comparisons with that look better.
