Biscuits and Gravy Casserole

Of Mice and Mountain MenWe often enjoy having breakfast for dinner. Not cold cereal, but eggs or biscuits and gravy, or sometimes even pancakes. During a particularly cold week I wanted something warming and comforting for the family dinner, but not the usual fare. I decided on a biscuits and sausage-gravy casserole. It turned out to be a great choice: a satisfying meal that warmed us up after a session of recovering a stuck truck from a long, icy driveway.

Biscuits 'n' Gravy Casserole

Biscuits 'n' Gravy Casserole

  • 1 pound ground pork sausage.
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions divided in half
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 8 jumbo refrigerator biscuits

Preheat the oven to 350 F and grease an 11-by-7-inch baking dish and place it on a baking tray larger than the dish (in case any casserole spills over during baking).

You may want to make your own biscuits instead of using the store-bought. That’s fine, just cook your sausage before you make the biscuits and roll the biscuits out to 1/4-inch thickness.

Brown your sausage in a large skillet. You will be making the gravy in this skillet, make sure it will hold around 5 cups of material. Remove the sausage and drain.

He says to 'Lay in the other 8 biscuit halves, top with the remaining sausage gravy and onions. Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the top.' for the rest of the onions.

He doesn't tell us what to do with the other 1/4 cup of green onions.
