Comforting Southern Biscuits And Gravy Casserole

Tammy Brownlow


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.

How to Make Comforting Southern Biscuits And Gravy Casserole


  1. In a skillet brown sausage, onion, and poblano pepper until all are thoroughly cooked. Remove sausage and veggies and set aside.
  2. Add additional oil if needed to sausage drippings. Add flour and cook on medium high for 5 - 7 minutes. Stirring with a whisk constantly.
  3. Add milk, salt and pepper to taste. Cook until mixture begins to bubble and thicken. Remove from heat.
  4. In a medium bowl combine, eggs, milk, butter, salt and pepper. Whisk until well combined.
  5. Turn oven to 350 degrees.

    In a 9 X 13 baking dish (greased or spray with cooking spray) add biscuits.
  6. Top with sausage mixture.
  7. Top with grated cheese.
  8. Pour egg mixture over cheese.
  9. Finally, pour gravy over egg mixture.
  10. Bake for 45 minutes.
  11. Remove and allow to set for 5 minutes.

    Note sometimes I like to dice a fresh jalapeno and cook with the flour/butter mixture to make jalapeno gravy.

    I hope y'all enjoy!
