Easy Biscuits and Gravy Casserole

We were invited to a breakfast pot luck recently, and it gave me the chance to try out something I have wanted to make for a while. The dish? Easy Biscuits and Gravy Casserole. I have seen numerous versions online, and I took a little bit from a couple of recipes to create the version below. The nice thing about this dish is that it is easy to make, and it offers guests something different to try.   

Note: The instructions below say to serve the dish immediately, and this is important. After about 30 minutes, when the dish cools down, it does thicken quite a bit. Some of this might be from the biscuits absorbing moisture from the gravy.

INGREDIENTS


2 cans Pillsbury Grands biscuits
1 pound pork breakfast sausage
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups whole milk
1/2 teaspoon pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Open both cans of biscuits and cut each biscuit into quarters.

Butter a 13 x 9 dish and evenly distribute half the biscuit quarters in the dish.

Bake the biscuit quarters for 10 minutes. Set aside.

In a large skillet over medium high heat, cook the sausage until brown and crumbly.

Add the butter and pepper. Stir well until butter is melted.

Sprinkle sausage with flour, stir, and allow to cook for several minutes.

Add the milk and stir.

Continue stirring occasionally over medium heat until gravy starts to bubble, 5 to 7 minutes. (Remember, this is going to continue to cook in the oven, so you don’t want the gravy to be completely cooked at this point.)

Carefully pour the sausage gravy evenly into the 13 x 9 dish.  Evenly distribute the rest of the biscuit quarters on top of the gravy.

Bake casserole for 15-20 minutes, until biscuits are golden brown. Serve immediately.
