Best Ever Breakfast Casserole!

If you're looking for an impressive dish to serve for brunch or breakfast, especially to a crowd, look no farther!

This has sausage gravy on the bottom...a layer of scrambled eggs...and another layer of sausage gravy, topped with cut up biscuits! What a hardy way to begin the day!

Of course, it would be wonderful for any meal too.


(I'm having to wipe the drool from my chin just typing this up and reviewing the photos!)

This is another awesome recipe I snagged from my good friend, Tonya at 4 Little Fergusons. Tonya does a lot of great cooking for her family and for others as well. If you haven't ever visited her blog, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take a peek.  You won't be sorry!
{The only 'problem' is that you'll have a hard time leaving...}

You may have seen her name here before because I've made quite a few of her fabulous dishes.

As Tonya says...this dish will make any man weak in the knees! =)

I easily halved this recipe as I'm only feeding 2 of us.

I'm adding Tonya's photo also because you can get a better idea what it really looks like...


1 (12 ozs) package pork sausage, your favorite flavor
8 Tb. butter, divided 
1/2 c. all-purpose flour
4 c. milk
1 (3 ozs) (cooked) packet bacon pieces 
(or 6 pieces, cooked & crumbled)
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 dozen eggs
1 (5 ozs) can evaporated milk 
1/2 tsp. salt
2 – 8 oz. cans refrigerated biscuits, flaky buttermilk, cut Into quarters (It is VERY important you get no more than 16 oz. of biscuits on the top of this dish or you will have doughy biscuits!)

Heat oven to 350 degrees (F).

In a large saucepan, crumble and brown sausage. Drain off fat and set aside. In the same large pan, melt 6 tablespoons butter. Add flour and milk, whisking until smooth. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Add sausage, bacon pieces and pepper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, evaporated milk and salt. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and cook until softly scrambled.

Pour 1/3 of sausage mixture into lightly greased 13 x 9 x 2 pan. Top with egg mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining sausage mixture.

Place cut biscuits on top of the (hot) casserole with points facing upwards. Bake uncovered for 20 – 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated and biscuits are golden brown.
