sausage, biscuits, and gravy casserole.

Sooo good!

I've been serving up in the children's ministry (Elevate) at my church for a couple months now. I work as a greeter, mostly signing in visitors and new kids coming to check out Elevate. It's administrative type work and we sometimes get to play with crafts because we're tasked with busy work - getting crafts ready to give to 600+ kids (over 5 services).

I'm serving alongside several people from my small group so I've gotten to know them well - and it makes serving extra enjoyable.

And they've gotten to know me too!

And my love for trying new recipes.

So, when the Sunday morning lady, who normally makes Sunday breakfast for all the volunteers had to quit I was asked to bring a breakfast dish one Sunday a month.

Ok, I could do this. Not a huge commitment. And we were already up on Sunday mornings getting ready for serving. I began scouring the internet for breakfast dishes. I happened on a biscuits and gravy casserole that looked amazing and super simple - hello! Amazing - check. Simple - check.

It was a big hit!


1 lb hot, Jimmy Dean sausage, fried, drained, and crumbled
1 package Pioneer Peppered Sausage Gravy Mix + package directions
3 cups, sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
6 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon sage, rubbed
1 can refrigerator biscuits, like Buttermilk, Flaky, or Buttery

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 glass baking dish.  Cube the biscuits
into 1/2 inch pieces and layer in the bottom of the greased dish. Scatter the
the sausage over the biscuits and cover with the shredded cheese.

Whisk together the eggs, milk, and seasonings. Pour over biscuits, sausage and
cheese. Prepare gravy according to directions. and pour over the top of the

Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.

And of course I made a recipe card for my kids' recipe book.
