The Best Breakfast Casserole YET!

My Sunday school class went nuts over this casserole! So much so, that there was not one piece left to photograph when I got home from church.

Trust me, it was GOOOOOOOD! This would be a perfect weekend brunch for ya, its nice and hearty and will make the man in your life weak in the knees.

Creamy Sausage Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients

  • 1 package Pork Sausage, Any Kind You Like. 12 Ounces
  • 8 Tablespoons Butter, Divided
  • ½ cups All-purpose Flour
  • 4 cups Milk
  • 1 – 3 oz packet Bacon Pieces
  • ¼ teaspoons Black Pepper
  • 1 dozen Eggs
  • 1 can Evaporated Milk (5 Ounce Can)
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 2 – 8 oz. cans Refrigerated Biscuits, Flaky Buttermilk Kind Cut Into Quarters  (It is VERY important you get no more than 16 oz. of biscuits on the top of this dish or you will have doughy biscuits!)

Heat oven to 350 degrees (F).

In a large saucepan, crumble and brown sausage. Drain off fat and set aside. In the same large pan, melt 6 tablespoons butter. Add flour and milk, whisking until smooth. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens. Add sausage, bacon pieces and pepper. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, evaporated milk and salt. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture and cook until softly scrambled.

Pour 1/3 of sausage mixture into lightly greased 13 x 9 x 2 pan. Top with egg mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining sausage mixture.

Place cut biscuits on top of the casserole with points facing upwards. Bake uncovered for 20 – 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated and biscuits are golden brown.

  You have to make this over the weekend….think biscuits with homemade sausage gravy, except BETTER! I served it with a Cinnamon Butterscotch Cake, which uses 2 pudding mixes and is OH-SO moist and FABULOUS!!! You must go check out the recipe here. You won’t regret it!

I’d normally put a photo up right here, of the cake, except it was DEVOURED by my class and alas, there were only crumbs left when I got home. I didn’t figure you’d want a picture of crumbs!

MMmmmm! Is it breakfast time yet?!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Oh oh boy–this sounds utterly decadent. Love how pointy the biscuits are on top! Makes it look like play food or something.

    Will you be watching the Pioneer Woman’s show tomorrow?? We don’t have TV, so I’m hoping they’ll post it online!

  2. Since the first day I saw this, I simply can’t stop thinking about how good this recipe is going to be! We’re having it tomorrow and I hope I can sleep tonight thinking about it. =) My hubby is gonna go bonkers over this dish of favorites…all in one! YUM!!!!

  3. This is a Great breakfast Casserole. I just love that the biscuits are on the top, it looks like a great recipe. Hope you are having a great week end and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.

  5. This looks so good……but one question…..what do you mean by “1 packet bacon pieces?” I can’t seem to find that in my grocery store. If using real bacon and then crumbling, how much would be the equivalent of 1 packet? Or if using bacon bits, how much? Any help / suggestions would be great! Thanks!

  6. This made a fabulous Memorial Day breakfast!! My family almost did back flips they liked it so much! Thank you for the recipe…I really enjoy your blog ;o)
