- On medium heat, in a medium sized skillet, brown breakfast pork sausage until completely cooked through. Drain away excess fat and set aside.
2. Open the tube of canned biscuit dough and cut each biscuit round in four equal parts.
3. In a medium sized mixing bowl crack the eggs. Pour in the milk and add salt and pepper with the eggs.
4. Whisk the egg, milk, salt, and pepper mixture until fully mixed. The eggs yolks should be broken. Whisk for about 1 minute.
5. Place the cut biscuit dough pieces on the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking pan. The biscuit pieces can be touching or even overlapping slightly. There also can be gaps in between the biscuit dough pieces.
6. Evenly sprinkle the cooked sausage over the top of the biscuit dough pieces. Pour the whisked egg and milk mixture on top of the sausage and biscuits.
Don't worry this won't make the biscuit soggy!
7. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese evenly on top of the egg and milk mixture. Add more cheese based on how cheesy you like it!
8. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until the egg is set and the biscuits are not doughy.
Serve immediately or refrigerate for an easy early morning breakfast.
Hint: Serve this dish with extra flavor by serving with salsa, ketchup, or even sausage gravy.
- Ham- Instead of sausage, use diced ham. You can use leftover ham from the easter holidays or another meal.
- Bacon - Substitute cooked sausage with cooked bacon. Cook bacon and crumble or cut into bite sized pieces. Sprinkle bacon on the cut biscuits instead of ground breakfast sausage.
- Vegetarian- Remove the meat altogether and have a vegetarian breakfast recipe. This vegetarian casserole will still have the delicious flavor of biscuits, egg, and cheese.
- Veggie lovers - In addition to the sausage, or instead of the sausage, make this a a veggie lovers casserole but adding diced onion, diced green pepper, and sliced mushrooms.
- Hash browns - Make this a supreme breakfast by adding cooked hash browns on top of the biscuit dough. You will need to use a 9x13 baking pan to account for the added food. Make sure to brown the hash browns before.
- Buttermilk Biscuits- Use canned buttermilk biscuits for a delicious buttermilk flavor.
- Flaky Biscuits - Use tube flaky biscuits for a fluffier flaky recipe. The flaky biscuits will rise to a bigger size than standard biscuits.
- Gluten free - Use gluten free biscuit dough to make this a gluten free recipe.
- Dairy free - To make this a dairy free option, substitute the cheese for vegan cheese, or don't use cheese at all. Instead of using dairy milk, use soy milk or almond milk to mix with the eggs.
- Meatless - Make this a meatless option by taking out the sausage and adding vegetables or just having egg, cheese and biscuits.
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 and reheat in the microwave before serving.
To reheat any leftovers, heat in a microwave, oven or air fryer.
Make this breakfast dish ahead of time, the night before or a couple hours before eating it in the morning, to save time. This recipe reheats very well in the microwave. Cut small serving size squares and reheat only what you are going to eat. Unless consuming the entire casserole, reheat in small portions.

My family absolutely LOVES this recipe!!! It is easy and quick enough to make the morning of, but also sits well over night in the fridge if you make it the night before. We also like to mix and match meats and cheeses to make it different each time. It is as delicious as it is versatile!!
Quickly becoming a family breakfast favorite
We loved making this recipe the other day. I made it night before and we had a delicious hot breakfast ready to be reheated the next morning. I used pillsbury grand biscuit dough for the casserole and it worked out great!
I already do something like this and my family LOVES it. Instead of just the meat and eggs, I make sausage gravy to pour over the basket and eggs. Then putting the cheese on at the end after baking. I have also made meals with other meats and veggies. The leftovers are an easy pack up for work the next day.
I love all of those ideas! Sounds so delicious, thanks!
