  • 16 ounces breakfast sausage
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 8 southern homestyle biscuits unbaked. I use Pillsbury


  • Preheat oven 350°F. Spray an 8X8 baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  • Cook sausage (16 ounces), crumbling with a spoon, over medium-high heat until cooked through. Melt butter (2 tablespoons) to skillet drippings. Sprinkle half the flour over the sausage and let the sausage soak it up. Sprinkle the remaining flour over the sausage and cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Gradually stir in milk (2 1/2 cups), sage (1/4 teaspoon), and black pepper (1/4 teaspoon). Simmer until gravy thickens.
  • Meanwhile, cut biscuits (8) into 4 pieces. Arrange half the biscuits in the bottom of the prepared pan. Pour gravy evenly over the biscuit layer. Arrange remaining biscuits over gravy.
  • Bake uncovered, in preheated oven for 13-15 minutes, or until biscuits are fully cooked and golden. Let stand 3-5 minutes before serving.


  1. Breakfast Sausage - Use your favorite brand in this biscuit casserole with gravy. If you use a brand that's heavily seasoned with sage, omit or adjust the dried sage.
  2. Whole Milk- The gravy is best made with whole milk rather than low-fat. It creates a rich luscious gravy.
  3. Homestyle Biscuits - For convenience, and my hectic schedule, I typically use canned refrigerated buttermilk biscuits. Choose the large biscuits. Homemade biscuits are amazing to use when time permits!
  4. Cheese - This recipe doesn't contain any cheese. You might see some other recipes that will include it. Listen, I'm crazy for cheese!! In this recipe, however, it is so rich and delicious, the cheese is not only unnecessary but detracts from the incredible flavor of this dish.
  5. Bake - Be sure to bake uncovered in an 8X8 baking dish.
