I know this recipe is a “breakfast” casserole, but I actually made this for dinner as my family is a bunch of breakfast lovers.  Just about once a week we have what we call “Brinner”!  I kid you not, there were only two small servings leftover that were promptly gobbled up the next morning.  Super easy and super yummy!  I will definitely make this often and will serve it up the next time we have overnight company in town.  It was a wonderful Pinterest find by  Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom.

I didn’t tweek the recipe at all and it was perfect-o, even for the pickiest eaters!  Enjoy!

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 12 ounces of buttermilk biscuit dough (we used Grands, which are slightly bigger)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 (2 3/4 ounce) package peppered gravy mix (makes 2 cups)
  • 1 lb sausage, any flavor
  • 1 cup cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 13×9 pan
  2. Brown the sausage in skillet and drain thoroughly.
  3. Cut biscuit dough into 1″ pieces, and line the bottom of the pan.
  4. Layer cooked sausage over the biscuit pieces,
  5. Layer shredded cheese over sausage.
  6. Whisk eggs and milk, add salt and pepper and pour over biscuit/layers.
  7. Make gravy according to instructions, and pour over everything.
  8. Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until eggs and biscuits are cooked through.
  9. Serve warm (leftovers are excellent too!)

Sunday Scoops: Easy Breakfast Casserole

Posted on Updated on

I made this on Christmas morning and it was delicious!  So easy and only a few ingredients.  Can easily be adapted to your taste and liking.  Add your favorite seasonings, veggies, meats and cheeses.  I pretty much followed the recipe exactly and just added a bit of onion and garlic powder since my family likes those flavors.  So good!

Ingredients
  • 24 oz. frozen hash browns (about 8 cups)
  • 16 oz. cubed ham
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk (I used skim)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add the frozen potatoes, ham, and cheese to a large bowl. Toss to combine. Pour the mixture into a 9 x 13 baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk, salt, and pepper (I use the same bowl from step 1).
  4. Pour the egg mixture over the hash brown mixture. Pat everything down with the back of a wooden spoon.
  5. Bake for one hour. The center should be set and the edges should be golden brown.
