    How to make Biscuits and Gravy Casserole:

    PREHEAT OVEN: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Then lightly grease a 9X13 baking pan and set aside.

    COOK THE SAUSAGE AND ONION: In a 12″ skillet brown the sausage and onion until sausage is no longer pink. Add garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper; cook for 30 seconds.

    MAKE THE GRAVY: Sprinkle with flour and stir in well. Cook for 1 minute. Whisk in milk and cook until slightly thickened. Pour into prepared baking dish.

    ADD BISCUITS: Cut each biscuit into quarters and place on top of gravy. Or you can make these homemade buttermilk biscuits.

    BAKE: Bake for 25-30 minutes or until hot and bubbly and biscuits are golden.

    Tips for making this recipe:

    • Make sure to cook the flour for a full minute before adding the milk. This takes away the raw flour taste.
    • Whisk in the milk slowly to create a smooth, fully combined gravy without lumps of flour.
    • For the ultimate biscuits and gravy breakfast casserole, make homemade biscuits instead of canned! Here’s how to make flaky buttermilk biscuits – they’re really tasty!
