Easy Biscuit, Egg, and Sausage Casserole

I love make-ahead breakfast casseroles. However, while these dishes make things easy the day of an event, there are many great breakfast casseroles that, while you cannot make them ahead, you can make them in a very short amount of time.  They are simple, straightforward to assemble, and absolutely delicious. We took this casserole to a brunch, and it was a big hit! I’m betting you and your family will really enjoy this Easy Biscuit, Egg, and Sausage Casserole too. 

Ingredients


1 can Pillsbury Grands biscuits
1 pound breakfast sausage
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
8 eggs
1 cup milk
¼ tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. black pepper

Instructions

Cook sausage over medium heat until browned, breaking it up into crumbles, about 15 minutes.  Set aside. (I did this step the day before so that I could assemble the casserole as quickly as possible the next morning.)  Store the cooked sausage in the refrigerator in an airtight container.

 

Preheat oven to 425. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish. (I used butter for this dish, but you could just as easily use cooking spray–just make sure it is a neutral oil, like canola, and not one with flavor, like olive oil.)

Line bottom of greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish with biscuit dough, firmly pressing to seal.


Sprinkle with sausage and cheese.


Blend together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper until mixture is combined well. If you don’t want to use a blender, simply whisk the mixture in a medium-sized bowl.

Carefully pour egg mixture slowly over sausage and cheese.


Bake 25-30 minutes or until set. If you have an instant read thermometer (and you should!), the casserole is done when the eggs in the middle of the dish register 144 degrees.  (Whole eggs are fully cooked between 144 degrees and 158 degrees. If you remove the dish from the oven at 144 degrees, it will continue to rise in temperature after you remove it from the oven. This is especially true if you use a Pyrex dish.)

Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve warm.
