When to know if sausage is fully cooked:

This recipe just requires browned crumbled sausage. As long as the sausage it broke apart into small pieces, and no longer pink on any side, it is done. If you use Jimmy Dean sausage, you can consider this Jimmy Dean sausage gravy!

How to make biscuits and gravy:

  • fry sausage-this is important to do first so you have it out of the way before continuing on with the rest of the recipe
  • cut biscuits-you can do this while the sausage is browning so that way it cuts down on time. You can use a pizza cutter to cut the biscuits into pieces. I cut each biscuit into 4 pieces, but you can cut them into however many pieces you choose. Place these on a 9 x 13 baking dish that is sprayed. Sprinkle 1/2 of the sausage on top. Bake.
  • make gravy-you can start making the gravy when the timer says the biscuits have 5 minutes left in the oven. White gravy for biscuits really adds flavor.
  • pour gravy on biscuits when they come out of the oven!

Variations of biscuits and gravy

  • less biscuits-if you want to cut down on carbs, you can use 1 can of biscuits instead of 2. You can use a smaller pan if you are going this route. Staying with the 9 x 13 baking dish is doable when cutting down on biscuits, but there could be spaces in between the biscuit pieces.
  • more pepper-in my personal opinion, you can never use too much pepper. If you want to use extra pepper than what the recipe requires, you can.
  • brats-sometimes I do not have sausage on hand, so I cut open brat skins and squeeze out the meat and fry it as normal sausage. I would recommend using a sweeter flavor of brats if going that method.

Favorite ingredients to use for this homemade biscuits and gravy recipe:

  • sausage-Breakfast sausage would be the most tasty in this recipe. I used savory deer sausage the first time making this though because that is what I had in my freezer. It tasted good, but I would recommend breakfast sausage for this sausage biscuit recipe.
  • butter-stick or tub butter
  • milk-base for gravy
  • biscuitsPillsbury , not sponsored, but Pillsbury is best. You can use other brands, but that might affect your cook time a little bit. You would just have to watch it more closely to ensure it does not get done too quick!

How to store sausage biscuits and gravy:

  • fridge-store this breakfast bake in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week
  • freezer-this recipe can be a freezer meal! Make as directions instruct, and then let cool. Place a cover over the dish, and put in the freezer until ready to use. To reheat, place in it in the oven for 400 degrees for about an hour or until heated throughout.
