Holly's Biscuit and Gravy Casserole


  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Warm up your oven to 375°F and lightly grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Cook the Sausage:
    • In a large pan over medium-high heat, cook the ground breakfast sausage until fully cooked. Spread the cooked sausage evenly in the baking dish.
  3. Prepare the Gravy:
    • In the same pan, reserve about 2 tablespoons of sausage grease. Add flour to create a roux, cooking for one minute. Slowly whisk in milk, bringing the mixture to a low boil until thickened. Season with black pepper and salt.
  4. Assemble the Casserole:
    • Pour the creamy gravy over the sausage in the baking dish.
  5. Biscuit Topping:
    • Form biscuits from the cookie dough and cut each into four pieces. Arrange the biscuit pieces on top of the gravy.
  6. Bake to Golden Perfection:
    • Bake for approximately 25 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown. For an extra touch, cover the dish with optional shredded cheddar cheese five minutes before it's done.
  7. Cool and Garnish:
    • Allow the casserole to cool before serving. Sprinkle fresh parsley on top for a burst of color.

Tips and Variations:

  • Lighter Option: Opt for turkey sausage and use a milk replacement like almond milk for a lighter version.
  • Cheesy Twist: Shred your favorite cheese into the gravy for an extra cheesy delight.
  • Spicy Kick: Spice up your gravy by adding chili pepper or chopped jalapeños for a flavorful kick.
  • Leftover Love: Save extras for easy breakfasts during the week—simply heat them up in the oven.

Final Thoughts: There you have it—a dish that wraps you in warmth and satisfies like a comforting breakfast blanket. Indulge in this Midwest morning hug through food! Enjoy and stay warm! 🍽️
