    Biscuits and Gravy Casserole

    My family absolutely LOVES biscuits and gravy and so do I! It’s great comfort food for breakfast, or lunch, or dinner.

    It’s a pretty easy recipe thanks to canned biscuits but feel free to use your own homemade biscuits instead. I often do this and we actually like it better that way.

    Breakfast Casserole with Biscuits

    If you are looking to replace the canned biscuits with homemade use this recipe:

    • 3 cups (345g) all purpose flour
    • 1½ tablespoons sugar
    • 3 teaspoons baking powder
    • ½ teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • ¾ cup (169g) COLD butter
    • 1 cup (240ml) COLD buttermilk

    Directions for homemade biscuits

    1. In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a cheese grater grate the very cold butter (I like to keep mine in the freezer) into the bowl of flour. Gently mix in the butter. Stir in the buttermilk just until the dough starts to come together. It will look very rough and shaggy. 
    2. Place dough onto work surface and gently knead dough 5-10 times to finish bringing the dough together. Roll into a rectangle then fold dough into thirds. Repeat then roll into a rectangle or square that is 1/2″ thick. 
    3. Cut with a 2 1/2″ or 2 3/4″ biscuit cutter by dipping it into flour and pushing straight down. Do not twist the cutter. Cut the biscuits as close together as possible. Place biscuits on prepared pan with sides touching for softer sides or space apart for crisper sides. Re-roll any scraps until you have 12 biscuits.
