- 2 lbs breakfast sausage (use your favorite types)
- 1 c shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 tube biscuits (I like to use Grands)
- 6 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 4 T butter
- 4 T flour
- 2 c milk
- ½ t salt
- ½ t pepper
Preheat oven to 350.
Brown sausage set aside. Cut each biscuit in fourths, I like to use a kitchen shears for this step, then set aside.
Beat 6 eggs, ½ cup milk, salt and pepper to taste again set aside.
Melt 4T butter then add 4T flour and slowly add 2 cups milk to make a simple gravy, then mix in ½ teaspoon salt and a ½ teaspoon pepper. Take off heat.
Now that you have all of these steps done, begin layering along with the 1 cup cheese in a greased 9×13 pan and bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes depending on your oven.
Why I love this recipe
Heading into the winter months and especially around the holidays, I like to break out my favorite egg bake recipes. I love this one with the gravy – it’s a bit of a twist on the usual egg bake. I also like to use 1lb. regular breakfast sausage and 1 lb. maple sausage to give this recipe a little sweetness.
Most egg bakes you make the night before. But, I think this recipe is better to make and bake right away. Prep ahead by having the sausage browned and in the fridge. If you have grandkiddos, have them help by cutting the biscuits and cracking the eggs!
I’ve mentioned in previous blogs that I only like to share the tried and true recipes from my favorite cook books, friends and family. Thanks to Lisa for this great recipe!! If your family likes biscuits and gravy they’re gonna love this one!
