Biscuits & Sausage Gravy Breakfast Casserole ala ~DKBB~

Biscuits & Sausage Gravy Breakfast Casserole ala ~DKBB~
(original recipe from


Sausage Gravy
½ lb. ground bulk pork sausage (maple or sage)
2 Tbsp. + ½ tsp. flour (I use Wondra)
1¾ cups milk
½ tsp. beef bouillon (I use Better Than Beef bouillon)
½ tsp. each garlic powder, dried parsley
¼ tsp. onion powder
⅛ tsp. each ground sage, salt, pepper
Smidgen each dried thyme, red pepper flakes

3 eggs
¼ cup milk
¼ tsp. each paprika, ground mustard
Smidgen each salt, pepper

Biscuits and Cheese
1 5-count can Pillsbury Grands biscuits (if you can’t find the 5-biscuit size, use the full size and only cut up 4 or 5 biscuits, baking the rest later)
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
½ cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese

  • Prep: Preheat over to 350°F; spray 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Par-Bake Biscuits: cut each biscuit into 8 pieces; evenly space ½ the biscuits pieces on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper; bake for 8-10 minutes, then remove from oven.
  • Egg Mixture: In bowl (or liquid measuring cup), whisk together all egg ingredients. Set aside.
  • Make Sausage Gravy: In a medium skillet, cook and crumble the sausage over medium-high heat; once browned, reduce heat the medium, sprinkle with flour, and cook for 3 minutes, stirring constantly; reduce heat to low and pour in the milk slowly, stirring constantly; stir in the beef bouillon and seasonings.
  • Thicken Gravy: Bring to a simmer, stirring often until it thickens (8-10 minutes); taste and season with additional salt, pepper, and/or red pepper flakes as desired. Set aside.
  • Assemble: Put the par-baked biscuit pieces in the bottom of the prepared baking dish and pour the egg mixture over all, then top with ½ of the cheese; evenly pour 1¼ cup of the sausage gravy over this (reserving the remainder for later); add the remaining unbaked biscuit pieces evenly spaced over the top.
  • Bake: Bake uncovered at 350°F for 2-25 minutes or until eggs have set and top biscuits are golden (internal temperature should be 160°F).
  • Add Remaining Gravy: The remaining gravy will likely have thickened, so stir in additional milk as needed as it reheats; remove casserole from oven and top with remaining gravy and cheese; return to oven and bake an additional 5ish minutes to melt the cheese.
  • Rest: Let the casserole rest for 10 minutes before serving; garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
