Puff Up Breakfast Casserole

Need a recipe for Thanksgiving or Christmas morning? How about a Puff Up Breakfast Casserole made easily with biscuits.

Puff Up Breakfast Casserole

One thing is certain, during the holidays and company’s coming, I always wondered what will I fix for the crowd.  I also wanted something easy and ready to go first thing in the morning. It seems that everyone is in the house at breakfast time and this meal needs to be hearty and warm.  After making my Puff Up Breakfast Casserole for the folks, I didn’t have to wonder what to make in the future anymore.

A super easy casserole to put together and it will feed your hungry bunch especially when you don’t have time to mess with a complicated recipe for Thanksgiving morning.

Puff Up Breakfast Casserole

Take your Pillsbury Grands Southern Style Buttermilk biscuits and cut each one into 8 triangle pieces.  I once tried just cutting them in quarters and they didn’t puff up very well. Spread them out evenly in a 9 x 13 casserole dish so that all the cheese and eggs will make their way between all the biscuits.

Next, add cooked and drained sausage over the biscuits and then the cheeses. Here is a tip I learned several years ago. I love sausage and ground beef but not all the grease that comes with it. So, after cooking the meat, I will put it in a colander and run hot water over the meat to rinse off the grease.

Whisk together the milk, eggs, and seasonings and slowly pour over the biscuits, sausage, and cheese.

Don’t worry if it looks like it’s not covering everything.  It will cook up very nicely and the biscuits make a nice puffy crust.  You can mix up this casserole, cover it, and leave it in the fridge overnight.  Next morning bake and your family will have breakfast waiting for them.

Look at all that golden puffy and cheesy goodness!

This casserole has been such a huge hit with my family and staple every year during Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Feed them on Thanksgiving morning so you can clear the kitchen and get busy with preparing Thanksgiving dinner. If I’m not hosting Thanksgiving, I will get a phone call wanting to know if I am bringing the Breakfast Casserole.

Mr. G and I have enjoyed this casserole many times for dinner too.  Especially when I need to use up eggs that have been in the fridge for a while.  I usually use the Hot version of sausage and it really gives this casserole a kick.  But, if you don’t want any spice, just use regular sausage or if you want a kick and don’t have hot sausage, just splash in some hot sauce. You could also substitute different flavors of cheese too.

I bet after you make this dish, you will be asked to make it often.

  1. I just used the Grands biscuits last weekend and used as a topping on my Chicken and biscuit casserole. It was so delicious.

  2. My favorite way to use the grands bisquits is the traditional way. Just for butter and honey but sometimes for sausage gravy and bisquits. I’ve never tried anything else with them yet.

  3. We enjoy using the biscuits for a variety of things. My boys favorite is to make a chicken noodle dish with them. Layer them on the bottom and a few other ingredients and bake–they love it!

  4. This looks SO GOOD! I’m thankful I have all these products in my refrigerator right now because I intend to make this for breakfast. Thanks!!

  5. Now I am hungry-very very hungry! That sounds really delicious and pretty easy to make. I know everyone I know would be asking for seconds-or just taking it!!

  6. You are definitely making me hungry with this recipe. I’d love to cook it for any meal of the day. I use grands biscuits but have never thought to use them in a casserole.

  7. I’ve never had a breakfast casserole before. It looks so good! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  8. I love them warm with butter and honey.
