Easy Breakfast Casserole

Ever need a meal you can throw together at the end of a long day, or have company over and need something that will please everyone? Of course you do. I love that this recipe can be prepared ahead of time, or can easily be thrown together in less than an hour.

This recipe is one of my favorites for breakfast OR dinner {if you're a "breakfast for dinner" kind of person, that is}. Even more important: it's husband and kid-approved! It's also easy to add or substitute any ingredients to suit your tastes.

Easy Breakfast Casserole

biscuit dough: enough for about 8 biscuits
*I used Bisquick, and followed the recipe for 9 biscuits. You could also use a package of refrigerated biscuit dough.
1 pound ground breakfast sausage
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
5 eggs, beaten
2 egg whites
3/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 package country gravy {or use your own recipe}: prepared according to package directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425º
  2. Cook sausage in skillet over medium heat until browned. Drain.
  3. Press biscuit dough evenly into the bottom of greased 8x8 inch pan.
  4. Sprinkle sausage evenly over the biscuit dough.
  5. Top sausage layer with cheeses.
  6. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, milk, salt, and pepper until blended. Pour evenly over cheese.
  7. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until set.
    *You can also bake covered with foil. Just make sure to check that a knife comes out clean when it's done to make sure it is cooked completely.
  8. Let stand for 5 minutes, then cut into squares and top with country gravy to serve.
