Biscuits, Sausage & Gravy Casserole

Sometimes you have to take life into your own hands.

Biscuits, Sausage & Gravy Casserole. The Tasty Fork

I woke up Sunday morning with a craving for biscuits & gravy. I never had biscuits & gravy until I met my husband. We went to a southern inspired brunch spot and he ordered them for breakfast. He gave me a bite to try. My world was obviously not complete. How did I live for 20 something years without biscuits & gravy??

I knew if I wanted biscuits & gravy, I’d have to make them myself. We woke up late (after celebrating ANOTHER Notre Dame Football win!) and NFL games would be starting soon. I headed to the grocery store with a Sandra Lee like mentality. I was going to make my breakfast semi homemade style by using canned biscuits and dry gravy mix from the spice isle. I hoped I wouldn’t regret this decision — I’ve never used a gravy mix before, but I was hungry, so I was sure anything would taste good.

I’m happy to report my little short cut worked out great! The casserole was filled with soft browned biscuits and the gravy was rich. And I know my judgement was blinded by hunger. I ate about half a bag of baked lays while I waited for this bad boy to bake. (30 minutes was pure torture, I needed a little appetizer.)

This casserole was a great thing to make for when you’re lazy or if you need to put something together fast. Heck, it’s pretty hardy — serve it for dinner if you’re into the Breakfast for Dinner kind of thing.

Leftovers warm up great, too! I had a 2nd helping of the casserole in the afternoon. And I can’t wait to eat the last of it for breakfast on Monday morning…. that is if my husband doesn’t claim it as his. Afterall, he did introduce me to biscuits & gravy….

Biscuits, Sausage & Gravy Casserole, serves 4 (2 biscuits per person)
Inspired by Pillsbury

  • 1 lb breakfast sausage, casing removed
  • 7 oz can of green chilies, mild
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 24 oz bag frozen potatoes (diced/cubed/hashbrowns — whatever you like!)
  • 10 oz can of diced tomatoes with chilies (I used Rotel)
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 package of dry gravy mix
  • 1 can of jumbo biscuits, 8 biscuits (Pillsbury Grands are great!)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese

Directions:

  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a hot skillet, add sausage and chilies. Cook until the sausage is no longer pink.
  3. In a separate skillet, add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil, potatoes and canned tomatoes. Cook about 8 – 10 minutes. The potatoes don’t need to be browned, just done enough to hold their shape. Season with salt & pepper.
  4. Prepare the gravy — follow the directions on the packet.
  5. Grease a casserole dish and add 1/2 of the potato mixture. Place biscuits on top and add the rest of the potatoes, sausage and gravy. Top with a little cheese. Bake for 30 minutes. Let the casserole sit a few minutes before digging in.

      Hi! I need to do more Friday & weekend link parties. I’ll be sure to try to come by!

  16. Karen Iacenda says

    I made this yesterday and it was very good, great idea. I used maple sausage and for the gravy I used country pepper gravy. The only thing I would add the next time I make it is some onion. Thank you for sharing this great recipe. My husband added chipotle sauce to the top of his portion (he’s a spicey kind of guy). :)

    • Miss Tasty says

      Sounds like great additions!! I love spice, too!

  17. Ashley says

    Do you drain the sausage after browning?

  20. Casey says

    We LOVED this!! I will have to admit, I was a little unsure about the Rotel and chilies, but it was wonderful! Thank you for a great recipe:)

    • Miss Tasty says

      That’s great, Casey! I’m so happy you enjoyed it!!!!

  21. Teresa says

    Do you drain the tamatoes ?

    • Miss Tasty says

      Hi Teresa. I didn’t drain the can of tomatoes.

  22. Sherry Baronti says

    Sounds yummy!! I’m making this for dinner tonight, my family loves breakfast for dinner, hope its a big hit! :)

  23. Chrissy says

    Just made this using fresh potatoes…its in the oven now. I didnt get a reply on what size pan, so I used a 9 x 13. Hope it works!!

    • Miss Tasty says

      Hi Chrissy! Sorry I didn’t get back to you right away. I had to check the size of my casserole dish. I used a 8×8. I hope it turns out for you!!!

  24. Breanne Renae Nieschburg says

    Just made this recipe, eating as we speak, and it is absolutely delicious!!

    • Miss Tasty says

      That’s awesome!! I’m so happy you liked it!

  25. Michelle says

    Can this be put together then stored in the fridge & cooked a few hours later??

  26. Toni says

    Definetly want to make this Christmas morning

  27. Chrissy says

    What size pan did you use?? I wanna make this for a crowd. So…I probably will double the recipe.

  28. Diane Henderson says

    Wish I could just print out the recipe.. not everything (8 pages) ???

    • Charlotte Jessie Bratcher says

      Just highlight the recipe part. When I print it ask how many pages, or selection. I click selection and it prints out just the recipe.

      • Miss Tasty says

        Great tip! Thank you for sharing!

    • Miss Tasty says

      I know, Diane! I’m working on a new blog setup and when it’s done, I should be able to post just my recipe in a PDF. You could copy and paste it to a Word Doc and print it in the meantime.

      • Michelle says

        Can this be put together ahead of time & stored in the fridge for a few hours before cooking??

        • Miss Tasty says

          Sure! You may need to cook it a little longer.

  29. annette says

    Do you cook the biscuits before you assemble the casserole?

    • Miss Tasty says

      Hi Annette! The biscuits go uncooked in the casserole and bake in the oven with everything.

  30. Darlene says

    Should biscuits be baked before adding to casserole?

    • Miss Tasty says

      Nope! They bake in the casserole. All in one step!

  31. Kiki says

    OMG— driving to the store NOW to get the ingredients!! Biscuits n Gravy are my favorite!! =)

    My husband woke up wanting to go to IHOP, I on the other hand am not in the mood to go anyplace, much less spend 100.00 on my crew for breakfast.. Then I seen this recipe.. he is on his way to the grocery store.. will be making this; this morning. TY

  34. Jennie says

    What kind of gravy do you use? Tired this recipe this morning and gravy made it almost unedible!

    • Jennie says

      I live in Alabama.

      • Jim Lester says

        I make the gravy, it is so easy… When you finished browning the sausage, add flour to the skillet and stir so that all of the sausage is coated and the fat absorbed. you can add some pepper if you wish. On a low heat gradually add milk and stir constantly until thickened to your liking

    • Miss Tasty says

      Yikes Jennie! I can imagine there are some bad gravy mixes out there. I bought country style gravy mix and the brand was Essential Everyday.

      • Jennie says

        Where do you purchase that?

        • Miss Tasty says

          Jewel. It’s a midwestern grocery chain. (Supervalu is the parent company) Where do you live?

  35. Ashley says

    Eek! My husband LOVES biscuits and gravy–I’m going to have to make this for him!
