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
- 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!
