A delicious Biscuit Egg Casserole recipe filled with biscuits, cheese, eggs and sausage, and takes only minutes to throw together! This breakfast egg casserole is a family favorite for weekends and holidays!

We’ve always been huge fans of breakfast foods and often have them for dinner, which means we enjoy them ALL THE TIME. Breakfast casseroles now have become as classic as Biscuits and Gravy and Buttermilk Pancakes in our home!!

Breakfast casserole with biscuits

What I like most about breakfast casseroles is they are delicious, usually take minutes to put together, and are easy to change up with different meats (ham, sausage, bacon) and cheeses, like today’s recipe for a Biscuit Egg Casserole.

This easy breakfast casserole has been one we’ve made a few Saturdays this summer. My husband LOVES biscuits so I knew he’d like this breakfast casserole with biscuits. We love the sausage with it best, but it would be great with ham chunks or bacon too.

We also love that it is super simple and takes just a few minutes to throw together. If you are like us, and enjoy a great breakfast casserole, then you should definitely give this a try.

Biscuit dough pressed into bottom of a baking pan

No refrigeration time required!

A lot of breakfast casseroles require you to assemble the casserole and refrigerate it overnight before baking. This sausage and egg casserole, however, doesn’t have to refrigerate at all! You can throw it together from scratch in 5-10 minutes, pop it straight into the oven, and enjoy it 30 minutes later!

ASSEMBLE. Line bottom of greased 9×13 inch baking dish with biscuit dough, firmly pressing to seal. Sprinkle with your choice of meat (we prefer sausage) and cheese. Whisk together eggs, milks, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl until blended, then pour the egg mixture over the sausage and cheese.

BAKE. Bake at 425° for 25-30 minutes, or until set. We recommend letting the casserole rest for at least 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

Note: Oven temperatures can vary. Make sure to bake the casserole for a little more or less time depending on your oven.You don’t want the casserole to be runny, or to dry out so adjust cooking time as needed.

When you think it’s done, stick a knife into the middle and see how soft it is. This will help to make sure it’s cooked to your liking.

OTHER INGREDIENTS TO ADD

Although these are the standard ingredients, you can also add:

  • onions
  • green onions
  • chopped peppers
  • chopped bacon (or even use in place of sausage)
  • anything else you think would go with this sausage and egg casserole

Making ahead and storing biscuit casserole

MAKE AHEAD. If you’re wanting to make this recipe ahead of time, it’s super easy! Instead of throwing it in the oven to bake, cover it with foil and refrigerate it until you’re ready to make it in the morning.

STORE. You can keep biscuit egg casserole in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Cooked eggs will only last about 4 days in the refrigerator.

FREEZE. If you happen to have any egg casserole left over you can keep it frozen in the freeze for up to 2 months. Keep it frozen in a freezer-safe container. When you’re ready to eat it, reheat individual servings in the microwave.

You can also freeze unbaked egg casserole up to 2 months and let it thaw in the refrigerator before you’re ready to bake it.

    I made the smaller version of this using a quiche dish. I could only find a 10 piece roll of small biscuits which was plenty. It was quick and easy to make and, I thought, delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

    I have to tell you I made your breakfast casserole for dinner last night… it’s similar to one that I have made for 15+ years (it uses crescent rolls and regular sausage)… but I have to admit that I like yours better!!! 😜😜😜.

    Not only was it super nice not having to cook the sausage (because that just takes forever) but it was much more dense because of the biscuit and it rose much more which made it more filling…

    Definitely give it a solid Two thumbs up from me and thumbs up all around from my breakfast for dinner loving happy family!

    Thanks for a great recipe.

    1. I’m so happy that you and your family liked it so much! Breakfast for dinner is one of my favorite meals and I’m glad this casserole turned out so well for you. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      1. This was SO delicious! I had company and made one pan of this as written, and also made a mostly dairy-free version (I am sure the biscuits have some dairy in them, but I used oat milk and omitted the cheese). This is definitely a keeper! I just made another mostly dairy-free pan to take to work for breakfast this week and I cleaned out my produce bins in the refrigerator, adding onions, poblano peppers, mushrooms, and spinach. I can’t wait to eat this at my desk in a couple hours. It definitely helps me make it through my Monday mornings! Thank you for the recipe!

        1. You are so welcome! I love all of the additions you used in the casserole. I hope it turned out tasty for you! Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve used this with crescent rolls and biscuits, with great results. I’ve also used cooked chopped link sausage, bacon, and ham — whatever I’ve had on hand. Same with the cheese. I usually make a half recipe for an 8×8 pan and cook at 400 for about 30 minutes. Works great. As long as I stick with the correct milk and egg measurements, it all works. I have it bookmarked, and have probably made it 10 or 15 times. Thanks for a great recipe!

    So yummy! I used turkey sausage. I added mushrooms and bell peppers to it. I used Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese.

    1. Mmm sounds like wonderful additions!! So glad you enjoyed the casserole and adapted it to what you like!

  5. Really yummy!! I’ll be making this again! It bakes up really high then falls a bit. Easy and delicious!Make it!

    1. If you would like to divide this and make a smaller version here are the ingredients amounts:

      For a smaller version (8×8 pan) use and do the following:

      1 small package 10 biscuits
      almost whole package of Jimmy Dean pre-cooked sausage
      5 eggs
      2/3 cup milk
      3/4 cup mozzarella cheese
      3/4 cup cheddar cheese
      salt & pepper

      *Bake for 20-25 minutes

      Hope this helps!
