This sausage egg biscuit casserole could not be easier. It requires FIVE ingredients and can be started and baked in less than an hour. The easiest way to make this recipe is to make it ahead of time. Instructions for that are below.
Cook the sausage. To start, cook the ground sausage over medium-high heat in a large skillet until it is browned, breaking it into smaller pieces as it cooks.
Assemble. Cut the biscuits into quarters and spread evenly in a greased baking dish. Top with the cooked sausage and cheese. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture over the biscuits, sausage, and cheese.
Bake. Bake in the preheated oven at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes. You want the eggs set and the biscuits golden brown. Serve and enjoy!
Leftovers. Store leftovers in an airtight container for 3-4 days.
This egg breakfast casserole recipe can be made ahead of time, making it even easier! Simply prepare the casserole up to the point of baking it, and then the next morning, pop it in the oven. You may need to add 5-10 minutes to the baking time since the entire casserole will be cold.
This recipe is perfection as is, but here are some variations in case you're wondering.

Can this be made the night before and baked in the morning?
I don't think this would work well with the refrigerated biscuits. You could definitely cook the sausage in advance and then just put all of the ingredients together the morning of!
I started making this when I realized I had crescent rolls (grand) instead of the regular biscuits. I had to use them since the discovery happened after I had popped the canister!! This is going to be interesting.....its in the oven right now. Keeping my fingers crossed!
I had a feeling it would! Yay! Happy Easter 🙂
I made this recently, and my family and I loved it! I will definitely be making it again! I had to make it with two 8oz packages of crescent rolls, as the stores were cleared out of all regular biscuits, but it still worked great. I also used a little extra spices (pepper, paprika, etc.) and about 1/2 cup of diced scallions sprinkled on after the shredded cheese. Thank you for sharing such a delicious recipe!
So happy to hear this...and I love your adaptations! Thanks for the review 🙂
My five year old is going through a "won't eat anything" phase. He had three pieces and I had to stop him so he didn't explode! That's amazing!! Everyone loved this casserole and it was so easy. I used ground pork and reduced the added salt a bit. Fantastic!! I can't wait to see who wins the fight for the last piece tomorrow morning lol! Thanks so much for the recipe.
What a total mom win! So glad the whole family enjoyed it!
We liked the flavor of this recipe, but had difficulty getting the biscuits to cook properly. We had to leave the dish in the oven for around 20 more minutes than listed on the recipe, with foil over the pan for the last 20. The biscuits were cooked but very dense. I’d perhaps recommend precooking the biscuits for a little while before adding the rest of the ingredients so they have a chance to rise.
Sorry you had this issue! I've made it multiple times and never have had a hard time with the biscuits getting cooked...I hope you at least enjoyed the end result after the additional cooking time! 🙂
Would this work for frozen biscuits if I let them thaw out first?
All I have is frozen biscuits. Do you think this would work if I let them thaw out first?
I can't say for certain, but I think that should work! 🙂
Would the cook time and temp be roughly the same if I doubled the recipe? Maybe just longer, but at same temp...
I think your best bet if you doubled it, would be to put it in two 9x13" baking dishes, as it would be too much for one dish. This way, the cooking time would be pretty much the same - maybe a little longer if you cook them both at the same time. Hope this helps!
How do you suggest to keep leftovers?
Everyone loved it even my picky 5 year old!
So happy to hear this! I store leftovers cut into squares in an airtight container for up for 2-3 days.
Could you make and bake and then just reheat in the oven?
I've never done this, but I believe it would work. I would do 350 degrees for about 20 minutes!
If i make this casserole or any egg casserole and want to freeze it before actually eating it. do I bake it first, cool it and then freeze it. OR do I freeze it, thaw it and then bake ?
I've never tried freezing this one, as I'm not sure how the biscuits would hold up. However, I have frozen many hashbrown and bread based egg casseroles, with really good luck! I freeze them prior to baking and then thaw them in the refrigerator overnight and then bake. Sometimes they need 5-10 additional minutes of baking time if they are still a little frozen in the middle.
