Biscuits and Gravy Casserole
Since my hubby is a southerner at heart (originally from southern Kentucky), he is a HUGE fan of biscuits and gravy. I grew up in the north, I never quite had the addiction he has to this comforting food. Sort of like grits I guess, you love them if you grew up eating them.
When we enjoy a meal at Cracker Barrel, the hubby is always anxious to dig into the biscuits and gravy they serve. Occasionally, he will make them at home but since the rest of the family is not HUGE fans, it is quite rare.
I figured I would surprise him this weekend and make him this super easy Biscuits and Gravy Casserole that I have been thinking of making for quite some time. For some odd reason, a biscuits & gravy casserole sounded VERY appealing to me. Biscuits slapped on a plate lathered in gravy just seems different, ha ha. Put it in a casserole pan and it is so different. Yes, I am being sarcastic.
This casserole is so super simple. Biscuits then gravy then biscuits. I really liked the convenience of this all being in one dish so it will be perfect for making for guests during the holidays.
I am so glad I surprised him with this dish. As it turns out, the casserole was amazing and the flakey biscuits really added in great texture. I may actually be convinced that this southern dish is pretty darn good after all.
As you can see, the dish is loaded with lots of sausage. I used a spicy sausage because we are fans of all food spiced. The gravy was so super simple to make and I didn’t have to spend hours in the kitchen making breakfast.
You will need sausage, biscuits, flour, milk, and lots of salt & pepper. I used store bought biscuits for our casserole. You could use homemade if you like. I also added on a nice lather of melted butter to my biscuits just after it came out of the oven. The butter is not needed but everything tastes better with extra butter, right?
2 cans Grands Biscuits
1 lb roll Breakfast Sausage
3 tbsp Flour
2 1/4 cup Milk
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Black Pepper
1 tbsp melted Butter (optional)
Preheat oven to 400.
Grease bottom and sides of small casserole dish (7×10″) with shortening or cooking spray.
Cut one can the biscuits into quarters and place in bottom of prepared pan.
Bake for 10 minutes.
Crumble and cook sausage in a large skillet over medium heat until completely cooked.
Sprinkle flour over cooked sausage. Stir and cook until flour is absorbed.
Add milk, salt and pepper. Stir until mixture thickens and begins to boil.
Add additional salt and pepper to taste.
If gravy is too thick, add up to 1/4 cup more milk.
Pour gravy over cooked biscuits.
Cut remaining can of the biscuits into quarters and place over the gravy.
Bake the casserole for 10 minutes.
Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 15 more minutes or until casserole is bubbling.
You can optionally brush tops of biscuits with melted butter.
