Biscuit Egg Casserole

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.

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 halved the recipe. Turned out fine, beautifully moist actually. But I don’t understand what the biscuits are suppose to do? The sont brown up or actually bake, they just sorta become a doughy layer – anyone else experience this? I think I’d just go more keto friendly and leave that layer out.

    1. So sorry. My biscuits baked up perfect. And actually some of the egg mixture went under them, so it was a fluffy in between layer for ours

  2. Holy COW. This was soooooo easy and by far one of the best tasting breakfast casseroles I have made. My husband loved it. Said it was “just perfect!” Next time I want to try adding some caramelize onions or chives!! Again. A must keep recipe forever YUM thumbs up
