Biscuits and gravy casserole is a hearty and comforting dish that’s perfect for breakfast or brunch. Here’s a basic recipe to get you started:

Ingredients:

For the Biscuits:

  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.

2. Make the Biscuits:

a. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. b. Cut in the cold butter using a pastry cutter or fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. c. Stir in the milk until just combined. d. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it gently a few times until it comes together. e. Roll the dough into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. f. Cut the dough into small squares or use a biscuit cutter to cut out rounds.

3. Make the Gravy:

a. In a large skillet, cook the breakfast sausage over medium heat, breaking it apart with a spoon, until browned and cooked through. b. Sprinkle the cooked sausage with flour and stir until the flour is absorbed. c. Gradually pour in the milk, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to a simmer. d. Reduce the heat and let the gravy simmer for a few minutes until it reaches your desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

4. Assemble the Casserole:

a. Pour the gravy into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. b. Arrange the biscuit pieces on top of the gravy. c. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown and cooked through.

5. Serve:
