Sausage Egg Biscuit Gravy Casserole

Every Christmas Eve we make this drool-worthy casserole and put it in the refrigerator overnight. Then on Christmas morning, we pop it in the oven while we are opening presents and by the time we are finished, it’s ready to enjoy!

If you are a fan of the southern dish of biscuits and gravy then this is your casserole! We make the gravy from scratch with flour and the grease leftover from the sausage. But you can also make it with a powdered gravy mix and it tastes just as great!

Sausage Egg Biscuit Gravy Casserole

Yes, it’s not the prettiest casserole but it tastes oh so good!

Tips for preparing for making this biscuit and egg casserole:

We use Jimmy Dean’s sausage and Pillsbury’s canned Homestyle Grand Biscuits but you can use any brand you prefer.

You can also make your own biscuits instead of premade can versions.

If you are not a fan of sausage, you can use bacon or leave the meat out altogether and it still takes great! I mean biscuits, eggs, and gravy are pretty good on their own.

Making the Gravy from Scratch:

  • Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat 5-6 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently.

Notes

If you like you can add extra cheese on the top.

When making this casserole ahead the night before, increase the cooking time by about 20 minutes. Watch it to make sure the biscuits cook all the way through and the eggs set.  

If it starts to get too brown on the top cover it with foil.

Use 1 (2 3/4 ounce) package Pioneer peppered gravy mix and prepare as stated in the directions on the package if you are not making the homemade version above.
