How To Make Biscuit Egg Bake
In less than 30 minutes of time, you’re going to be chowing down on this simple biscuit gravy casserole. Trust me, it’s simple AND delicious!
Step 1: Preheat oven to 425.
Step 2: Line bottom of greased 9×13 inch baking dish with biscuit dough. I diced my biscuits up into 5-6 slices each. I used frozen Biscuits but you can also use refrigerated biscuits or homemade biscuit dough.
Step 3: Sprinkle with sausage and cheese. Make it evenly spread. I used just classic breakfast sausage, but feel free to swap with a spicy sausage.
Step 4: Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until blended; pour over sausage and cheese. Now mix a packet of gravy with milk and pour over the top as well.
Step 5: Bake 25-30 minutes or until set. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into squares; serve warm.
Step 6: Once the casserole is done, whip up the package of gravy and spoon over your casserole for a biscuit and gravy take to the casserole.
Full directions and recipe is in the printable recipe card below.
Can you make this overnight breakfast casserole spicy?
If you want, you can! I have sausage in the recipe below that isn’t spicy, but you can certainly add in hot sausage if you want.
Adding in hot sausage is just one way to add in the spice. You can also chop up some fresh jalapenos and add them in if you want or add in some chili powder, too.
If you want heat, there are plenty of ways to make it happen!
How do you know when this egg biscuit casserole is done baking in the oven?
You’re going to have to pay attention to this way and judge this based on look. The top should be a golden brown and it should have a firm look to it at first glance.
You need to be certain that it doesn’t have any “jiggle” to it, either as that is an indication that the eggs aren’t cooked all the way through.
Can you make this egg casserole in advance?
Absolutely! This is one of the biggest reasons why I love this simple recipe so much.
You can literally meal prep the entire recipe the night before and have it waiting in the fridge to bake in the morning.
It’s a simple way to save on time in the AM by getting most of it completed the night before in the PM.
Do you add any toppings to this biscuit gravy casserole?
You can easily add toppings to this simple breakfast dish. I love to add on some fresh salsa and fresh tomatoes and a dollop of sour cream.
You can also drizzle on some honey to make it sweeter as well. (don’t knock it til you try it – it’s actually really good!)
The best part about this simple breakfast casserole is that once you let it cool and cut it apart, each person can add their own toppings on as they please.
That way, you don’t have to put the flavor or topping that you want on the entire thing. Everyone can decide how to add flavor to their own piece.
How do you store leftover biscuit egg bake?
Since this makes a pretty big pan of casserole, there’s a good chance that you’re going to have some leftover. All you really need to do is put a lid on the casserole pan and store it in the fridge.
It will stay fine for a several days and is easy to reheat and enjoy for another morning breakfast or two.
If you have a ton leftover, add it to your freezer but putting it into a freezer safe container and saving it for later.
It should freeze just fine and will unthaw easily when it’s time to thaw and enjoy at a later point in time.
This egg biscuit casserole is a simple dish that you’re going to love and want to wake up to time and time again.
