I love sausage and cream gravy. I don't know of many Southern Ladies that don't have a recipe committed to memory for it - as we tend to make it quite a bit (:

I have seen recipes that use a mix - but why not make the gravy yourself! It's easy peasy to make and once you do, you'll never look back.

This is definitely a crowd pleasing casserole. I sometimes make it for dinner. Then breakfast is ready in the morning - that is if there is any left.

I hope you give this one a try.
