October is National Pork Month, and we’re celebrating with the Missouri Pork Association

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 .

Line the bottom of the prepared baking dish with biscuits.

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

  • 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!
