Tips for making Biscuits and Gravy Casserole

  • Regular breakfast sausage is fine. Use hot sausage if you want a little heat. Sage-flavored sausage is also good.
  • I personally prefer a NON-Grands Pillsbury refrigerated biscuit. They don’t puff up as much as the Grands which tend to overwhelm the casserole.
  • This recipe can be assembled the night before and baked in the morning.

Print Recipe


  • 1 (8-count) tube refrigerated biscuits, best not to use Grands becasue they puff up so much
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups milk divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 7 eggs
  • 1 (8-ounce) block Colby Jack cheese shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9X13-inch baking dish.
  • Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces and scatter biscuit pieces across the bottom of the baking dish.
  • Cook sausage in a large pan, crumbling it with a wooden spoon as it cooks. Once fully cooked, remove it with a slotted spoon to a paper towel-lined plate. I like to leave about 1/4 cup of sausage in the pan for the gravy.
  • Add butter to the grease in the pan and set pan over medium heat. Add flour and stir and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Gradually whisk in 2 cups of milk. Add garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Simmer until thickened. Remove from heat.
  • Whisk together eggs with remaining 1/2 cup milk in a medium bowl. Season with a little salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle sausage over biscuits. Sprinkle 1/2 of cheese over sausage.
  • Pour egg mixture on top, followed by gravy and remaining cheese. Bake for 30 minutes.

  1. I wanted to make this recipe but your page is so full of ads, popups & videos that it’s impossible. I shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to get to a recipe on a recipe site.

  2. I made this because we got a ton of breakfast sausage with our hog order from the butcher. I don’t like biscuits and gravy, but I thought I’d give it a try because my husband does. THIS WAS AMAZING!! I loved it and our two kids (7 and 9) fought over the leftovers the next two days. I also only had Grands! Biscuits, so I cut them into 9’s (2 cuts each direction on the biscuit) and they came out perfect. There were enough to cover the bottom of the dish and I didn’t have to adjust the baking time. Thank you so much foe this recipe!

  3. This is sooo good. Used grands biscuits, just cut them in smaller pieces, came out great. Baked a few minutes longer. Added onions to the sausage as it cooked. Yummy. Reheated really well, too. Definitely a keeper recipe. Thank you for sharing

  4. My family just finished eating this. It was fantastic. I made it as a trial run to see if I wanted to serve at Christmas brunch. It was so easy and tasty, it is for sure making the cut to serve for Christmas! Grands were the only rolls at my grocery store, so I cut them into 8’s and only used 6. That seemed to work as a compromise.

  5. Just made this today and unfortunately had to use Grand as that is all I had, definitely agree to let it cook longer as the biscuits didn’t fully set, but still delicious after, may throw some other stuff in it next time. Time to expirament

  6. Horrible!!! Did everything as instructed. Had to up the time on the baking, because the biscuits weren’t even done. Taste was blah, texture was worse!

    1. For years, we have made a few extra biscuits and gravy on Saturday mornings, then…. put the leftover COOKED biscuits in the bottom of a pan, cover with cheese and leftover sausage, poor the whisked eggs over the top, add the leftover gravy and a bit more cheese, bake at 350 until the eggs are done (40-50 minutes.) OR try putting it in the fridge and bake the next day for breakfast. It’s quick, easy, and uses the leftovers for another dish on another day since it reheats well. 🙂 (Use GOOD sausage; it makes all the difference.)

    2. It came out great for me. Use good sausage, that is where most of the flavor comes from. I followed exactly and the biscuits were cooked perfectly.

  7. I’m making this dish tonight, I have doubled the ingredients completely and looks just as good as it did the first time I made this meal as one dish. My family and some of the kids friends love this it is soooo good!! Thank you for sharing this recipe 😌

  8. I made this as written the first time. Hubby and Father like it. Hubby said add it to the rotation but it needs your touch. 2nd time I added onion to the sausage while it was cooking and added 1/4 tsp of ground sage. I also added 1 cup shredded cheddar to the cheese. ( only 6 eggs in this one because that is all I had at the time). It was simply devine.

  9. Everybody I make this recipe for absolutely loves it. I have a guest coming that has a but allergy, food allergies are new to me. Is there anything I need to be worried about?
    Thank you

  10. I accidentally put the gravy over the biscuits, before the egg mixture. I was going to ask you if it would be ok, but it’s already done. However, I will be sure to comment the turnout, in case anyone else messes up 🙂

  11. Would I be able to do this recipe to feed closer to 15 people using a Pyrex dish?
    Would I need to double the whole recipe or it doesn’t work that way?

    1. I’d use two 9 X 13 baking dishes (easier to serve both ends of he table 🙂 ) Also I’d make the recipe twice. Sometimes by doubling the recipe it doesn’t come out right.

  12. I am planning on making this for Christmas breakfast. I have made other breakfast casserole dishes and found that if I bake them in oversized muffin tins, they bake quicker and I am able to customize each “muffin” to each persons likings (I have a family member who doesn’t care for cheese for breakfast). That being said, has anyone tried this and, if not, do you think it would work?

    1. I used over sized muffins tins to make individual casseroles and it worked beautifully. Baked them for 25 minutes. I was able to make ones without cheese as well. Everyone loved them and suggested that fresh mushrooms be added to the gravy.

      1. This stuff is amazing. I’ve made it several times now because it was such a big hit in our home with my family and with friends. Leftovers are just as good.

  13. WOW!!! Just made this! Sitting here eating it. Great recipe! I diced a large potato and fried it separately till almost done and put in with sausage and then the rest of ingredients. Used grands biscuits. Awesome!!!!

  14. This recipe is amazing, we cooked up some bacon, chopped it fine, added it to the gravy mixture, totally amazing as well. This one will be a staple for easy dinners or early breakfast

  15. This looks super good for sure 🙂 Might have to make this when we go to MB at the end of the month but for sure be more than just the two of us but reheating it the next day or the next then we may be able to eat most of it or at least try?
    I think I have seen can biscuits come with less in them and just maybe we could eat it all at one sitting and just cut down on the number of eggs and other items and should work ou just fine and if any is left over I can have it the next morning.
    Thanks for posting this one for sure 🙂

  16. Well,I haven’t gotten to try your recipe yet,but it sounds great. Why do we feel the need to bash another if your not satisfied with the recipe given. We have choices and if this is not to you’re liking,then look for another. We need to be nicer to each other, life is just to short. Some of the comments were just not loving and food needs to be made with LOVE. So, if your angry and life is being rough on you, Have a good meal and share it someone else. Company and good food is good for the soul!!!!

    1. I completely agree. If you don’t like a recipe there are enough recipes out there… find another. Be kind! We made this and love it!

    2. Stephanie,
      I totally agree with everything you said. I’m always searching for different recipes, and if I come across one I may not want to try I leave it alone.

  17. This recipe was sent to me by my sister in law. I made it and wow! Super delish and so simple to make. I did use grands and really not an issue. Even better on day two! I think next time i will let set over night and bake next morning. Definitely good dish for a brunch!

  18. I can’t understand why some of you can’t read a simple recipe it clearly states 7 eggs I made this and I just have to say it was delicious I will definitely be making this again .

  19. Made this for my husbands 50th birthday and everybody loved it. I used store brand biscuits and baked it for 35 minutes. I put it together and then put it in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before baking. It bakes up beautifully and cuts easily. Can’t wait to make this again. If you love biscuits and gravy, you will love this casserole. 🙂

  20. Ready to make this and all I have are Grands. Do you think if I rolled them thinner before I cut them, that it would make them cook better? Please advise. My family can’t wait to taste this casserole and neither can I. ♥

    1. I’ve made this with grand. Just place them side by side in the pan. Don’t cut them and pour everything over them the same as you would.

  21. This looks yummy, but I’m left wondering what the Nutrition Info looks like, and will be thinking how to make it healthier, even though it IS biscuits and gravy and eggs and sausage and cheese!!!
    Do you have the nutritional data on it?

  22. I baked it and used 8 eggs, I used more cheese than the recipe called for because this family loves cheese! It did have to cook longer than the recipe called for, but I did use grands so that may be why. It is delicious, seriously your family will love you for it so COOK IT🙂

  23. Baked this tonight and it was delicious. However, it took an extra 30 minutes (and turning the oven up to 400 the last 10 min) to get the biscuits completely cooked. Will probably squish them into a crust so they don’t float up into the egg mixture, or just use a pie crust next time since this is essentially a quiche. 😉 Definitely will make again!

    1. I was thinking the same thing!!! My family doesn’t care for biscuits but this looks so good, I HAVE TO MAKE IT!! I’m gona try it in pie crust as a quiche instead. I’m sure it’ll be just as yummy 😋.

  24. Haven’t made it yet, but could you make with homemade biscuits? I don’t have fridge biscuits but I do want to try this. Been wanting biscuits and gravy for so long. But we don’t eat pork and nowhere does turkey breakfast sausage so I want to try this out. Thank you.

    1. I would think you could. I’ve tried tied many recipes that called for refrigerated biscuit s with a quick homemade rolled biscuit dough and it turned out just fine. I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but it’s on the menu for tomorrow’s breakfast! I will prep tonight and put in the fridge until morning bake time!

    2. I’ve been making a recipe like this for a few years with homemade biscuit dough. I pre bake the biscuit base at temp biscuit recipe suggests until they are just barely done. Then I add all the other ingredients and finish baking at casserole temp. I have wondered if I could bake it all together, but I really don’t want to mess up a whole batch.

    3. Did you know you can make your own sausage with ground turkey? I have not done that, but have seen recipes with the spices needed for flavor.

  25. I used one pound of Jimmy Dean regular sausage and one pound Jimmy Dean hot sausage. Doubling the sausage made it more substantial and mixing the sausages gave it great flavor without being too spicy. My family loved it!

  26. I first made this last week and will be making this again because it was such a huge hit! I used Grands because it’s what we had on hand and they baked perfectly fine in an 8×11.5x2in baking dish. Taking a previous reviewer’s advice, I baked this for an extra 5 minutes (35 minutes total) to make sure the Grands were done all the way through. It was perfect. I also just used 6 eggs because we had only 10 on hand. I’ll be making this again with just the 4 remaining eggs. It’ll be just fine because you don’t even need the eggs to help with the baking of any of the ingredients. They’re just there to help bind the biscuits together a little bit even though the biscuits will bake into each other. I also used country gravy mix from a packet to save on cooking time. It worked just fine!

  27. This recipe is perfect for Christmas morning. Very easy to make and wonderful taste to tingle your tastebuds for more Christmas treats.

  28. Christin, one question:
    Reheat in microwave or have to do it in oven.??? Only 2 of us – we shared the remainder w neighbor. Hubby felt it isn’t reheatable.

  29. I got one am glad it says 7 eggs & you suggest NOT using Grands.
    I copy recipes on my PC to keep on my iPhone – in Drop Box. But I forgot to type in where I got it. I Googled like 10 food websites & couldnt find it @ first. It was those 2 ingredients that made t stand apart. Majority used Grands & number of egged was 6 or 8….. no one else had lucky number SEVEN!
    I do know it was outrageously delicious‼️TY Christin❗️

  30. This was fun to make and delicious! I made it with Grands, because I missed the comment about using regular refrigerator biscuits, but it still turned out great. I baked it for 35 minutes instead of 30. Hubby and I both loved it!

  31. Looks great haven’t tried it yet. I love Biscuits and Gravy. I think I will use Jimmy Dean Sage Sausage as I like it better in the biscuits and gravy. Or could add sage to the seasonings. I do use Grands biscuits when making B&G but will use Non Grands as you use in your recipe….. Looking forward to trying it. Sounds Yummy!

  32. Followed the recipe but took a bit longer to cook then the stated amount 30 minutes and the biscut was still just dough cooked another 25 minutes before done

  33. This look so yummy an something new I want a try..thanks so much for sharing this dear Christin! God bless you!!! Donna

  34. What is wrong with you people? It VERY clearly says 7 eggs…… 7! If you can’t be nice then leave so the rest of us can enjoy the recipies. I can’t wait to try it. Love everything you post on here.

  35. When was it an inpertive to restate the ingredients in the method. Have listed ingredients then the method when passing on my recipes for over 50 years. The only time I mentioned the ingredients in the method again was if they were to be split eg yolks and whites or tasters for the final dressing for the plate’s.

  36. This looks like a simple yet delicious recipe, Christin. I am glad to have happened to this post now as I am in need of something new to serve my family. And this sounds easy for my not-so-professional-kitchen-skills. I am definitely trying this within this week, hopefully. Thank you for sharing! Let’s all spread love.

  37. first you say that my remarks will not be shown as i do not have a website then you show my remarks, Christine.
    Maybe that is why you get the remarks some folk miss out on what you have written. if so please go back and check. I do get the recipes in total but obviously some do not.

    1. They’re listed now but were not when the recipe was originally posted a week ago. There’s no need to be rude to everyone else.

  38. The recipe state 7 yes seven eggs. do you not read all of the parts of recipe before you complain? The eggs are listed under the pepper. I could think of numerous things to say but etiquette will not let me. Cook it and then give it the thumbs up.

  39. for those that did not know how many eggs, re-read the recipe, it states 7, yes seven eggs.
    I do not know how you can get on in life if you cannot read a simple recipe that is clear. It states & whole eggs.

  40. It is designed to be a cooking challenge. The egg amount is left out to entice our imagination and experimentation of cooking with eggs, therefore as with some of the popular TV Shows, the readers are left wondering.. how many eggs. 4 or 5 or 6 or 8? Tune in next week to find out!

    1. That’s really annoying for people who CANNOT cook with imagination and no recipe. I won’t be back to your site. Saying I’m left wondering is ridiculous. Why even post a recipe…w/out all the ingredients. Glad I didn’t start making this already. :/

    2. Then don’t put it in RECIPE website. PUT IT IN A COOKING CHALLENGE website where cooks like me stay far away.

  41. In the directions, it says to whisk the eggs with the rest of the milk, but there aren’t any eggs listed in the ingredient list. How many eggs?
