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.

How many does this serve.. (Biscuits & Gravy Casserole)
I am going to substitute bacon for sausage. Can’t wait to try this out.

Sounds awesome! Maybe I missed it, but how many people does this recipe feed?
Did anyone else have a problem with using a 10×7 pan? Everything was going over the sides! It’s still in the oven but I will definately use a larger pan next time.
I made this and my whole picky family loved it!! I made it even easier by using canned sausage gravy. Not only easier but my family didn’t have to endure my less than stellar gravy making skills. :)
The husband and I love biscuits and gravy and just got done making it and it came out really good
Has anyone ever tried making the sausage/gravy mixture the night before to save time in the morning?
The only downside to this is it will be thick enough u would have to add milk to thin it out
I loved this !!! Great recipe !
I have 3 sons in college . The oldest is 6’4, middle is 6’5, and youngest is 6’4, all size 15 shoe. You don’t want to know our grocery bills or how much my boys, who’s friends are always gathering at our home, can eat. Growing up in the south, Dallas, TX everyone is familiar with putting gravy on anything. I know making two of these when the boys are home the same weekend, this will be filling, simple, and not a lot of time consuming steps to make. I just subscribed and I’m looking forward to getting your recipes. I’m a single father, can cook, but limited. So any assistance would be appreciated getting via of email. This recipe, I know will be a hit. I do know how to make homemade biscuits that don’t require rolling out, my Bread Machine does all the work I drop them on a cooking sheet, done. Thanks again.
Can I use hamburg instead. I really dislike sausage.
I am a born and raised a southerner, I loved this and plan on cooking this ever week gooood gooood good.
Me too – southern California! I could make these every weekend!
Y’all call these biscuits????? No self respecting southerner would ever, ever tolerate a pre-made canned roll to be substituted for a homemade biscuit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This obviously is a lazy northerner’s way of cooking!!!!!!!!!!!! Shameful!!!!!!
I guess it’s true what they say, “Haters gonna hate”! Here’s an idea, if you don’t have anything nice to say then don’t say anything at all.
As a born and raised southern woman who is still planted in the dirt where she grew up I can tell ya this sounds delicious and I have fooled all my southern family and friends for over 40 years with gravy that begins with a mix so don’t preach to me about the sinfullness of canned biscuits. If I have time I go completely from scratch if not i don’t,, either way I don’t hear complaints nor does anyone anyone leave my house hungry, I will say a real southerner was raised that if you don’t have something nice to say don’t say anything at all….so I rekon we can tell who truly was brought up wrapped in the true hospitality and charm of the south.
I was having a down in the dumps day, until I read your comment. It was hilarious! You certainly put a smile on my face!
I love authentic southern cooking and do agree, yet this is supposed to be for those with minimum cooking skills and are crunched for time. So, it works for them.
I made it because I was curious, it’s not bad., it lacks the traditional panache. Needs serious tweaks in the spice department. But all in all for a quickie throw together, not bad.
Yet, for those of us who love the real thing, it’s definitely worth the time to make the traditional biscuits and gravy.
Thanks for the chuckle, my stomach still hurts from laughing so hard!
I made both the Hash brown casserole an Biscuit and gravy casserole for Father’s Day and they were a hit! Will be make these more I am sure! Thank you!
Thank you so much for sharing. I have always struggled with making homemade biscuits and gravy. But with this recipe I was able to, and it was so delicious.
Made this tonight. It was very good, however, you have to double the sausage gravy or half the biscuits. Definitely not enough gravy for all the bread.
Recipe looks delicious! However, since you mentioned you’re not from the south I’m gonna let you in on something. This is especially true in Kentucky. Most southerners would agree that gravy for biscuits and gravy should be made with bacon instead of sausage. And you always always always save the grease for the gravy!
Me and my husband ate this tonight! For some reason the biscuts on top were still very doughy on the bottom (the part touching the gravy) I put it back in the oven for 15 more minutes and it was still really doughy! What did I do wrong??

We love biscuits and gravy in our house so this sounds like a new take to try! Thank you for sharing at Merry Monday
Rose @ Walnut Acre
Wow! this looks incredible! We’re biscuit and gravy fans here anyway so I know this would be a hit..
Audra @ Renewed Projects
I love biscuits and gravy, its on the list of top favorite breakfasts. Yours looks delish! Great idea for a potluck dish.
Breakfast is my favorite meal and I often eat it for dinner.
I’ve made your casserole before and we love it.
Now to try that amazing looking braid.
For the Biscuits and Gravy Casserole do you drain the grease after cooking the sausage?
no you keep the grease
I would not. It helps absorb the flour for the gravy.
Sounds great to this old Southern gal! Must try this.
I love receiving your recipes!
They are wonderful!
Keep up the great posts!
