The ingredients for this cheesy biscuits and gravy casserole are:

  • Canned Biscuits – I like Grands classic buttermilk, but any canned biscuits will work well.
  • Breakfast Sausage – I use veggie sausage crumbles, but you could also use pork or turkey sausage.
  • Eggs + Milk – for that scrambled egg effect.
  • Cheese – shredded cheddar is my favorite, but other cheeses like pepper jack could work too.
  • Country Gravy – I use canned gravy, but you could use a mix or make your own from scratch if you prefer.

Can you make biscuits and gravy casserole the night before?

Yes. Simply make the recipe up to the point where you pour on gravy. Cover the whole dish in aluminum foil or plastic wrap and store it (and the gravy, separately) in the refrigerator overnight.

In the morning, all you need to do is pour the gravy over the top and bake.

How long do you bake biscuits and gravy casserole?

For this recipe, you bake for 30-35 minutes at 350°F

  • 8 biscuits canned
  • 12 ounces sausage crumbles I used veggie sausage
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 5 eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 can country gravy 15 ounces (or 2 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onion optional


  1. Cut the (raw) biscuits into fourths and spread on the bottom of a 9×13 casserole pan.

  2. Cook the sausage crumbles and then spread over the top of the biscuit pieces.

  3. Sprinkle on the shredded cheddar cheese.

  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Pour over the cheese layer as evenly across the casserole as you can.

  5. Pour the gravy over the top.

  6. Bake at 350°F for 30-35 minutes until bubbly and any visible biscuit pieces look golden brown.

  7. Sprinkle the green onions over the top before serving, if using.

Recipe Notes

You can make this casserole the night before by making the recipe up to the point where you pour on the gravy. Cover the casserole and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, pour the gravy over the top and then bake as directed. 

I use veggie sausage crumbles, but if you are using meat such as pork or turkey, make sure the sausage is cooked through before adding to the casserole. This could change the amount of time it takes to prep this dish.

    Canned gravy and canned biscuits? I am going to have to pass. I can make from scratch in less time and no artificial preservatives and I guarantee it will taste better

    • Good for you but some of us don’t make things from scratch. You can make it however you want you don’t need to be rude!

      • I agree. No need to comment in such a pathetically rude way. Don’t like the recipe scroll on by. Geez!!!!!

        I don’t think DT was being rude. I’ve tried both ways. I made this just this morning and DT is right making it from scratch is a lot better. Can biscuits and can sausage have a different taste. I think Susan and you both took it the wrong way and even your comments were rude. You have to look at both sides and if you can’t make things from scratch now would be a good time to learn. It’s easy to learn it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to make it from scratch. It seems like every board I go to someone gets butt hurt for the wrong reasons. Learn to take criticism with a grain of salt. But for me I like the made from scratch better. Making things from scratch just taste better. When you post recipes you have to take into consideration some comments want be what you want to hear. If you can’t take criticism then don’t post your recipes plain and simple.

  • Biscuits and gravy for breakfast on Saturday. Thanks
