    This is my go to recipe when I want to enjoy breakfast with my family gathered round! Been making it for years now! Thank you!

    So we made this Thanksgiving morning and boy oh boy, was it a hit! It was demolished in less than 20 minutes by everyone here – ha! My oven temperature is off by about 13 degrees. I put an oven thermometer in there a while back when I realized my baked goods were not getting done in the time they were supposed to. It also depends on where the rack is in my oven. Anyways, all of that to say it took about 10 minutes longer in my particular oven (this will obviously not be the case for everyone, just putting it out there in case some others may need to actually verify their oven temperatures – it’s more common than people realize). I just covered the dish with foil while waiting on the biscuits to cook. It worked perfectly and this will now be in our regular rotation. It is just amazing!!

    This is my favorite breakfast casserole. I’ve made it many times since. I omit the gravy because I like it more simple. It’s delicious. The hot sausage pairs perfectly with the cheese, eggs and biscuits. When I make this casserole for friends it becomes their favorite too. A must try!

    I make this for my husband almost every other week, it’s a staple in our home!! I’m wondering if I can make this and freeze it for a friend?

      Yes, we make this a couple of times a month for our church. we freeze it, and then on Saturday we put in the fridge and bake it on Sunday morning..

  6. I really want to make this and have all of the ingredients except for the gravy packet. Do you think I could make homemade gravy with the sausage drippings and add two cups of that instead???

  7. Do you cook the gravy like package says or put it in the casserole uncooked and let it thicken in the oven?

    1. Hey Steve! Not sure if you saw in the directions above that you are going to mix it with 2 cups of water and that’s it – no cooking on the stove, the heat from the oven takes care of that. Hope that helps!

  8. if you wanna make it the night before, do you go ahead and put it together and then bake in the morning? or bake it at night and then fridge it, then warm it in the oven again?

    1. You can actually do it either way depending on how much time you have. If you put it in the fridge before cooking, you’ll have to add on some cooking time to adjust for it being cooked from cold. I can’t tell you exactly how many more minutes since I haven’t tested it from cold. Or you can bake it off, let it cool then cover and put in the fridge then in the morning just reheat. 🙂

    This is my second time making this casserole! The youngest helps prepare and named it ‘Casen biscuits’. Super easy & makes plenty for my family of four!

    Made this recipe and it was DELICIOUS. Only difference was I used the honey biscuits instead of the buttermilk and it was AWESOME! It was gone before I even got to eat any myself! Absolutely recommend to everyone!

    Hi! I made this with a few tweaks (turkey sausage, pepper jack cheese), and it turned out really well! I saw some folks recommend making the gravy on the side. Next time, I think I’ll do both… gravy in the mix and some gravy on the side. 🙂 Yes, 2 cups of water seemed like a lot, since the 2.75 oz Pioneer gravy packet asked for only like 1/2 a cup, but you’re baking it long enough that the water bakes off or gets absorbed eventually. I got two thumbs up from my family. Thanks for posting this!

    For folks who add hashbrowns, at what stage do you add them? We made some on the side. 🙂

    Thanks again!

    1. The Pioneer Gravy mix has 1/2 cup for mixing with the powder and then another 1.5 cups of boiling water in the pot so it take a total of 2 cups of water to make the gravy.

    LOVE this recipe Brandie! It’s been a hit with guests at our B&B. I’m always looking for new recipe ideas to share with family and guests and this one seems to be a WINNER! It also is an excellent way to use up any leftover meats, cheeses and vegetables. It’s a very flexible recipe so the skies the limit! Thanks again for sharing this.
