I absolutely love breakfast foods but I am not a morning person. This makes it hard for me to want to make a nice big breakfast on the weekends since I can’t be bothered before coffee. By time I’m ready, everyone else has already ate! Usually we have “Brinner” – or breakfast for dinner or even lunch. If we want a big breakfast for breakfast, we usually look to the hubs for that. He doesn’t mind cooking and it’s nice to be able to be in the kitchen together.
The Sausage Gravy and Biscuits Casserole that I made was for a brunch gathering we had with our family friends from the UK when they came to FL. It was the first time I had ever made it and realized too late that I should have doubled up on the gravy! There is a lot of biscuits and it soaks up the gravy. Since we had to drive over an hour to get where we needed to, it was even worse. Everyone ate it and commented how great it was….BUT, we were all in agreement over MORE GRAVY. (Plus, I like to smother everything in it. Southern gal here!)
I made a double batch of this breakfast casserole since there was nearly 20 of us eating it. I made it in my nice Viking 6.4 Qt. Casserole pan. You can make this in a small casserole dish or double it for a 9×13. This would also be delicious with a layer of scrambled eggs…ooo and cheese!
Here is the recipe (with a printable version below it):

1-lb Breakfast sausage
3 Tbsp Flour
2 1/2 C Milk
salt & pepper to taste
Quarter the biscuits and line 1/2 of them in a baking dish with non-stick spray.
Bake 450 for 10 min (until golden brown)
Brown sausage then add flour, milk, salt & pepper.
Mix gravy until thick and smooth.
Pour the gravy over the biscuits in the baking dish then top with remaining uncooked biscuits.
Bake 400 for 20-25 min.
