Who can pass up homemade biscuits and gravy? Biscuits and gravy casserole is great for breakfast or supper, and it makes a delicious Christmas or holiday brunch.
Making biscuits and gravy
The first step is to brown sausage in a medium sized pot. Next, transfer sausage to prepared baking dish and use a paper towel to blot out grease from the sausage.
How to make gravy from scratch
For the mouth-watering gravy, simply add butter to the sausage drippings in the pan and melt it over medium heat. Next add flour, salt and peppers and stir to combine. This will create a roux (mixture of fat and flour used to thicken many dishes).
Cook the mixture 2-3 minutes until the roux begins to brown. Then stir in milk, and whisk to remove any lumps. Cook the gravy on medium-low, stirring often until thickened (several minutes).
How to assemble biscuits and gravy casserole
To put this dish together, pour the gravy over sausage in your baking pan and spread the gravy evenly. Next, top the sausage and gravy with biscuits. We recommend using our drop biscuit recipe or a favorite biscuit recipe. You can also use refrigerator biscuits from your local market. Divide biscuit dough into small portions, or cut refrigerator biscuits into fourths, then top gravy with biscuit pieces and bake.
