How to make Egg and Biscuit Breakfast Casserole
Making Egg and Biscuit Breakfast Casserole is easy.
First you brown the sausage. Drain the excess fat and measure out the amount needed. Any leftover sausage can be stored in the refrigerator for another meal or put in the freezer.
Next, pop open that tube of biscuits. Try not to jump! It gets me every time! Cut each biscuit into four equal parts. Each can usually has 8 biscuits, you will be left with 32 biscuit pieces.
In a greased 9x13 pan, place the biscuit pieces on the bottom of the pan, evenly spread out. Then sprinkle the sausage on top of the biscuits.
In a medium bowl, crack the eggs, and pour in the milk. Whisk for 1 minute. Make sure all of the egg yolks are broken up. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
Pour the egg and milk mixture over the top the biscuits and sausage. Don't worry this won't make the biscuits soggy, it's amazing!
Top the casserole with shredded Monterey Jack cheese.
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until biscuits are cooked through and egg is not runny.
Serve immediately plain or topped with your favorite hot sauce, ketchup, or salsa. Or make the night before and reheat in the microwave in the morning.
Tips and Tricks
I like to make this meal the night before and have it ready to serve in the morning. This way I don't have to wake up extra early.
Add more sausage if you have a meat lovers group. You can also use kielbasa or any other type of breakfast sausage you like.

Store any leftovers in a refrigerator in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
This meal also freezes well. Cut into small squares and freeze in a freezer bag or airtight plastic container. Freeze for 1-2 months. Thaw in the microwave before serving.
To reheat any leftovers, heat in a microwave.
