Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Biscuits and gravy was my favorite breakfast food as a kid. Well, actually, it still is as a matter of fact! This breakfast casserole was REALLY good and would be great for company or a brunch. Just add some fresh fruit and you've got an easy breakfast!

Ingredients

10 oz
tube of buttermilk biscuit dough
6
eggs
1 pkg
powdered gravy pouch
1 lb
sausage, any flavor
1 c
cheese, shredded
1/2 c
milk
salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

1
Preheat oven to 350. Take a 13x9-in pan and spray with cooking spray (or smear with butter). Cut biscuit dough into 1" pieces, and line the bottom of the pan.
2
Brown the sausage & drain.
3
Scatter the browned sausage over the biscuit pieces, then top with shredded cheese.
4
Whisk eggs and milk with a pinch of salt and pepper, then pour over the pan.
5
Make gravy according to instructions, and pour over the pan. Bake for 30-45 minutes, depending how hot your oven runs.
6
Cut and serve. It's delicious warm right out of the oven!

    Phyllis this sounds so good and easy when you have a crowd for breakfast. I bet it would be a hit for visiting holiday guests. Kind of like the bread, sausage and egg casserole, but different. Pinched!

    Leslie, I wouldn't. I would be afraid of things becoming soggy beyond reparation - but if you think it'll work, and give it a try, let us know how it goes!

    I was thinking that because the base is biscuit dough and it depends on Baking powder/soda to rise, it might be better to bake the biscuit dough the evening before and then put it together and bake it the next morning. Just a thought to keep the dish from terminal sogginess.
