The Shady Porch: Country Breakfast Casserole - Eggs Biscuits & Gravy

Country Breakfast Casserole - Eggs Biscuits & Gravy

This hearty Country Breakfast Casserole is very similar to the Easy Biscuit Breakfast Bake with the added feature of sausage gravy! It has everything for a big Country Breakfast in one casserole dish. It is a flavorful option for a relaxed morning meal, or you can make it the night before, refrigerate it, and pop it in the oven when you rise in the morning. It's my favorite kind of breakfast...easy and delicious.

One Dish Breakfast...Eggs, Biscuits & Sausage Gravy!


Ingredients -
2 cans of biscuits
2 1/2 cups cooked sausage, crumbled or a bag of pre-cooked turkey sausage
6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled or 1 bag of real bacon pieces

1/2 cup milk
2 cups of heavy cream (*see substitute recipe below)
6 eggs
2 packages of Sausage-flavored Country Gravy Mix, or a pre-made sausage gravy like Tennessee Pride.
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Salt & pepper to taste

They even loved the leftovers the next day!
Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  •  Spray a 9x13 casserole dish. (Melting 1/2 stick of butter in the pan instead of using the spray would also serve.)
  • Cut biscuits in half and layer in the bottom of the casserole dish. [If you use Pillsbury Grands, or any other large biscuit brand, cut into thirds. Be sure to use a larger dish to minimize the chance of overflow as the biscuits rise.]
  • Add the layer of cooked, crumbled sausage.
  • Whisk eggs, cheese, milk, heavy cream, salt and pepper together, then pour over the sausage layer.  
  • Make the gravy according to package directions and pour evenly over the egg layer.
  • Bake until the casserole is set [the middle is no longer jiggly]. This can be anywhere from 45-65 minutes. In my wonky oven, it was ready before the hour was up. 
  • Before serving, sprinkle the top with the real bacon pieces. 
*Substitute recipe for heavy cream  - if you do not have heavy cream available, simply mix 1/3 cup of butter and 3/4 cup of milk
