This week it was my turn to cook for the Clear 99 Crew. I don’t really BBQ like Josh, so I decided to go breakfast. I put together a Biscuit and Sausage Gravy Casserole. I made this for myself last week and it was amazing. So this week, I am sharing. And just incase they didn’t like the casserole, I also made 2lbs of bacon. I mean who doesn’t like bacon? Thanks to the Missouri Pork Association for providing all of the sausage and bacon this week.
I always cook my bacon in the oven. I just think it’s easier and you can do more at one time. It also keeps my stovetop clean (and the worst part about cooking is the cleaning up afterwards).
The Biscuit and Sausage Gravy Casserole is actually pretty simple. I use a lot of supermarket shortcuts. I suppose you could make your biscuits from scratch or make your gravy using pan drippings and build a roux. I didn’t do any of that. Here’s the recipe that I found on allrecipes.com .
Biscuits and Gravy Casserole
- 1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated biscuit dough
- 1 (1 pound) bulk pork sausage
- 1 ½ cups shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
- 6 large eggs eggs
- ½ cup milk
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 1 ½ cups cold water, or more as needed
- 1 (1.5 ounce) package pork gravy mix
- Step 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13-inch baking dish.
- Step 2
Line the bottom of the prepared baking dish with biscuits.
- Step 3
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Scatter sausage over biscuit layer and top with 1 cup Cheddar cheese.
- Step 4
Whisk eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together in a bowl and pour over cheese layer.
- Step 5
Mix water and gravy mix together in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until gravy is thickened, 1 to 2 minutes, adding more water for a thinner gravy. Pour gravy over egg layer. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese over casserole.
- Step 6
Bake in the preheated oven until egg is fluffy and cheese is bubbling, about 30 minutes.
The recipe says it’s supposed to feed 6. Enjoy!
