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

Step-by-Step

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


    In a 9 X 13 baking dish (greased or spray with cooking spray) add biscuits.
  • 6Top with sausage mixture.
  • 7Top with grated cheese.
  • 8Pour egg mixture over cheese.
  • 9Finally, pour gravy over egg mixture.

    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!
