1 pound ground pork sausage
2 teaspoons canola oil
5 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
8 refrigerated jumbo biscuits
1/2 cup chopped green onions
3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°. Cook sausage in canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 8 minutes or until crumbly and no longer pink; remove from skillet, and drain. Melt butter in skillet; whisk in flour. Whisk constantly 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly; cook 2 minutes. Stir in sausage. Grease an 11- x 7-inch baking dish with cooking spray; place dish on a baking sheet. Split biscuits in half lengthwise; place 8 halves in baking dish. Top with half of sausage mixture and 1/4 cup chopped green onions. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese. Bake 40 minutes or until golden.
This is one of the best breakfast casseroles I have ever had. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out amazing. The biscuits got nice and fluffy and the green onions gave a really nice brightness to the flavor of the casserole. My boyfriend and I ate the whole thing in two days. By the second day, the biscuits have soaked up most of the gravy, but that keeps them from drying out so that it is still delicious after you reheat it.
Great upgrade to the usual biscuits and gravy. I made it to take for our Sunday School class and got rave reviews. I did omit the cheese since my husband doesn't care for it and it was still delicious!
Very tasty and satisfying, however it doesn't make 6 to 8 servings. We had over night guests and it made 4 nice sized servings. I added 1/4 cup of chopped onions to the sausage about 2 mins before it was done and still used the green onion. I also swapped out the milk for half and half and increased the cheese to 1 cup. We had it along side scrambled eggs.
WOWZA! This was so deeeelish! Made it for Sunday brunch and what a hit it was! Not too difficult to make, doesn't require a lot of ingredients. Husband LOVED it. I took the advice of another poster and served it with scrambled eggs on the side. May try it with a fresh fruit cup next time. Good beyond belief!
