Biscuits, Sausage & Gravy Casserole

12 Nov

Sometimes you have to take life into your own hands.

I woke up Sunday morning with a craving for biscuits & gravy. I never had biscuits & gravy until I met my husband. We went to a southern inspired brunch spot and he ordered them for breakfast. He gave me a bite to try. My world was obviously not complete. How did I live for 20 something years without biscuits & gravy??

I knew if I wanted biscuits & gravy, I’d have to make them myself. We woke up late (after celebrating ANOTHER Notre Dame Football win!) and NFL games would be starting soon. I headed to the grocery store with a Sandra Lee like mentality. I was going to make my breakfast semi homemade style by using canned biscuits and dry gravy mix from the spice isle. I hoped I wouldn’t regret this decision — I’ve never used a gravy mix before, but I was hungry, so I was sure anything would taste good.

I’m happy to report my little short cut worked out great! The casserole was filled with soft browned biscuits and the gravy was rich. And I know my judgement was blinded by hunger. I ate about half a bag of baked lays while I waited for this bad boy to bake. (30 minutes was pure torture, I needed a little appetizer.)

This casserole was a great thing to make for when you’re lazy or if you need to put something together fast. Heck, it’s pretty hardy — serve it for dinner if you’re into the Breakfast for Dinner kind of thing.

Leftovers warm up great, too! I had a 2nd helping of the casserole in the afternoon. And I can’t wait to eat the last of it for breakfast on Monday morning…. that is if my husband doesn’t claim it as his. Afterall, he did introduce me to biscuits & gravy….

Biscuits, Sausage & Gravy Casserole, serves 4 (2 biscuits per person)
Inspired by Pillsbury

  • 1 lb breakfast sausage, casing removed
  • 7 oz can of green chilies, mild
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 24 oz bag frozen potatoes (diced/cubed/hashbrowns — whatever you like!)
  • 10 oz can of diced tomatoes with chilies (I used Rotel)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 package of dry gravy mix
  • 1 can of jumbo biscuits, 8 biscuits (Pillsbury Grands are great!)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a hot skillet, add sausage and chilies. Cook until the sausage is no longer pink.
  3. In a separate skillet, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, potatoes and canned tomatoes. Cook about 8 – 10 minutes. The potatoes don’t need to be browned, just done enough to hold their shape. Season with salt & pepper.
  4. Prepare the gravy — follow the directions on the packet.
  5. Grease a casserole dish and add 1/2 of the potato mixture. Place biscuits on top and add the rest of the potatoes, sausage and gravy. Top with a little cheese. Bake for 30 minutes. Let the casserole sit a few minutes before digging in.

  14. Jennie December 2, 2012 at 9:27 am #

    What kind of gravy do you use? Tired this recipe this morning and gravy made it almost unedible!

    • Miss Tasty December 2, 2012 at 9:45 am #

      Yikes Jennie! I can imagine there are some bad gravy mixes out there. I bought country style gravy mix and the brand was Essential Everyday.

      • Jennie December 2, 2012 at 10:52 am #

        Where do you purchase that?

      • Miss Tasty December 2, 2012 at 10:59 am #

        Jewel. It’s a midwestern grocery chain. (Supervalu is the parent company) Where do you live?

    • Jennie December 2, 2012 at 1:42 pm #

      I live in Alabama.

      • Jim Lester December 10, 2012 at 7:50 am #

        I make the gravy, it is so easy… When you finished browning the sausage, add flour to the skillet and stir so that all of the sausage is coated and the fat absorbed. you can add some pepper if you wish. On a low heat gradually add milk and stir constantly until thickened to your liking

      • Miss Tasty December 10, 2012 at 8:02 pm #

        Yum!

  15. Helena December 2, 2012 at 9:30 am #

    Should biscuits be baked before adding to casserole?

    • Miss Tasty December 2, 2012 at 10:52 am #

      Nope! They bake in the casserole. All in one step!

  19. annette December 2, 2012 at 11:05 am #

    Do you cook the biscuits before you assemble the casserole?

    • Miss Tasty December 2, 2012 at 11:07 am #

      Hi Annette! The biscuits go uncooked in the casserole and bake in the oven with everything.

  20. Diane Henderson December 2, 2012 at 12:08 pm #

    Wish I could just print out the recipe.. not everything (8 pages) ???

    • Miss Tasty December 2, 2012 at 12:19 pm #

      I know, Diane! I’m working on a new blog setup and when it’s done, I should be able to post just my recipe in a PDF. You could copy and paste it to a Word Doc and print it in the meantime.

      • Michelle December 2, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

        Can this be put together ahead of time & stored in the fridge for a few hours before cooking??

      • Miss Tasty December 2, 2012 at 2:24 pm #

        Sure! You may need to cook it a little longer.

    • Charlotte Jessie Bratcher December 2, 2012 at 12:55 pm #

      Just highlight the recipe part. When I print it ask how many pages, or selection. I click selection and it prints out just the recipe.

      • Miss Tasty December 2, 2012 at 1:21 pm #

        Great tip! Thank you for sharing!

  21. Chrissy December 2, 2012 at 12:27 pm #

    What size pan did you use?? I wanna make this for a crowd. So…I probably will double the recipe.

  22. Toni December 2, 2012 at 1:04 pm #

  23. Michelle December 2, 2012 at 1:36 pm #

    • Miss Tasty December 2, 2012 at 3:40 pm #

      Hi Chrissy! Sorry I didn’t get back to you right away. I had to check the size of my casserole dish. I used a 8×8. I hope it turns out for you!!!

  26. Sherry Baronti December 2, 2012 at 3:30 pm #

    Sounds yummy!! I’m making this for dinner tonight, my family loves breakfast for dinner, hope its a big hit! πŸ™‚

  27. Teresa December 2, 2012 at 4:21 pm #

    Do you drain the tamatoes ?

    • Miss Tasty December 3, 2012 at 8:35 am #

      Hi Teresa. I didn’t drain the can of tomatoes.

  28. Casey December 3, 2012 at 7:59 am #

    We LOVED this!! I will have to admit, I was a little unsure about the Rotel and chilies, but it was wonderful! Thank you for a great recipe:)

    • Miss Tasty December 3, 2012 at 8:32 am #

      That’s great, Casey! I’m so happy you enjoyed it!!!!

  29. Denise December 3, 2012 at 11:36 am #

    What kind of dry gravy mix???

    • Miss Tasty December 3, 2012 at 1:18 pm #

      Hi! I used a country style gravy mix. The brand was from Jewel Grocery Store.

  30. Ashley December 6, 2012 at 11:43 pm #

    Do you drain the sausage after browning?

  31. Karen Iacenda December 7, 2012 at 9:08 pm #

    I made this yesterday and it was very good, great idea. I used maple sausage and for the gravy I used country pepper gravy. The only thing I would add the next time I make it is some onion. Thank you for sharing this great recipe. My husband added chipotle sauce to the top of his portion (he’s a spicey kind of guy). πŸ™‚

    • Miss Tasty December 10, 2012 at 8:05 pm #

      Sounds like great additions!! I love spice, too!

  32. missinformationblog December 8, 2012 at 7:07 am #

    I would love for you to come share this on I Freakin did it Friday @ Miss Information! As a southern girl this has been one of my favorite breakfasts and I can’t wait to try this
