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.


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.

  1. Was I supposed to cover this? I do have a crazy electric oven but in 23 minutes the top was burned and the biscuits and eggs not cooked. Maybe because its convection? I have not really experienced this before.

    1. I have had similar experiences using the convection setting on my oven. I always move the rack down and reduce time or temp accordingly.

    2. Unless you set the oven to convection, it should not have been cooking on convection–unless that’s the only way it cooks which would be unusual. This post is over two years old, but I hope that you or others with similar problems will see this.

      I have been the only cook in my family for over 40 years, and can tell you that the new “American Made” ranges are anything but. When we moved and had to buy a new one (the one in our last home was made in about 1995) I just went to Sears and picked out a mid-price model. At about $2,000 it should have worked. It did not; bent legs, fluctuating oven temp. The next SEVEN we tried within 8 years also had major problems. The issue most of them had was horribly fluctuating oven temperatures that would start when they were about 6 months old, or just after I used the “convection” feature the first time. Every one of them arrived in a box that said “Made in Mexico” or “Made in China” even though they were supposedly made in America. I became pretty good friends with the Sears maintenance guy, who finally told me that the new ranges are made with very thin oven walls (to cut down on manufacturing and shipping costs) and that the convection feature frequently caused problems with the thermostats. I finally bought a Bosch, made in Germany, and it works wonderfully.

      I have talked to dozens of younger, less experienced cooks who blame their own inexperience for recipes that do not turn out right. In almost every instance, the problem can be traced back to their range. The new ones are simply horrible. If you are following the recipe, do not blame yourself. Get a cheap oven thermometer and check the oven’s temperature. The readings won’t be completely accurate, but I’ll betcha you will find that your oven has major temperature fluctuations. Like going from 350 to 500 degrees on its own.

      For those of you buying a new range, please pay for an extended warranty. I know this goes against what we are all taught, but it will be your only recourse when the oven goes crazy. Your other option is to buy a Bosch or other “high end” range. I can’t afford a Wolf or other really expensive stove–the Bosch was the only one I could find that was within reason. Good luck to all you newish cooks out there–or those who have had to buy a new range recently. And don’t let the manufacturers off the hook. The junk they are selling is simply criminal; don’t let them get away with it!

        Cathy, thank you so much for the info!! I’m the newish cook your referring to 🙂 I’ve been cooking for my family about 8 years and had a wonderful older convection oven in my first home, then when we moved and had a new one my tried and true recipes and perfect baked goods went haywire! I thought something had happened to me. Then over time realized I had to become acquainted with the new oven and learn it quirks! Its terribly sad the poor quality of new and expensive items are these days. I too had issues with this recipe. First it wouldn’t bake through, so I put it in a bit more, still not baked through and knew I needed to cover it at that point to not burn the top. But then suddenly after only a couple more minutes it was not only baked through but burnt on the bottom! I was so frustrated! And it was supposed to go to church as it was my turn to make breakfast for our Sunday school class. Good thing I’d made a cinnamon apple crumb cake the night before and I just took that. Despite the the issues it is quite tasty. I used fresh cooked sausage though, I hate anything precooked. More processing and bad stuff in it. Same for the biscuits although this particular morning I did opt for ease.

        Thank you again for the great info! I will definitely start checking my oven temp with a separate thermometer. I think my oven made a huge jump on me this morning!

    I tried the 8×8 version of this recipe. The biscuit layer at the bottom had risen way too much, to the point where all of the eggs, cheese and meat spilled over into my oven. I followed the recipe to a T, not sure where this went wrong. Very disappointing.

    1. Unfortunately, I have not. I think this recipe would be best making right before serving. 😉

  3. I was so sad:( I used the 8×8 and the middle of it was complete mush. The center was still completely raw and the edges were crisp.

  4. 4 stars
    I made this for dinner last night and it was a great, easy option for dinner. My husband even reheated it for breakfast this morning. I used a 9X13 pan, but I had to cook this closer to 40 minutes for the middle to cook through. When I pulled it out at 25 the middle was still mush.

    1. It’s great for leftovers!! Yeah, every oven is different, so the times may be different. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Hi there are slme fantastic recipies here so thank you just a question ,the biscuit cassarole I dont know the biscuits you mentioned are they sweet plain. Regards

  6. My son is very picky and he loved this recipe! It is very easy to make. I did however feel the recipe needed more salt and just a tad bit more of pepper but that’s maybe personal preference also. Will definitely be making this again!!!!!!

  7. 5 stars
    This was a big hit for my husband and I. We made it together for date night. We did the 9×13 recipe. We decided to cook our own sausage though and it was still super yummy. What had me concerned was it did expand a ton in the oven but once I took it out after it was done cooking (about 30mins) I stabbed it with a fork and it went down eventually. I also like to keep an eye on whatever I cook because I have a tendency to burn things so that is why I was able to make sure nothing burnt and nothing got too big. After we put the leftovers in a bag and put it in the fridge. It was just as good for the next two days, even after being reheated!

        Hi there- made this last year for christmas breakfast, huge hit! I know you can prepare the night before, im curious how it is after it bakes? Soggy? Too hard? Has anyone prepared And baked the next day and what are your thoughts? Thanks!

  8. This looks delicious and can’t wait to try it. I do have a question? How many does serve. And i was reading some of the comments, and some were saying it bubbled over. So I was wondering if after you flattened and sealed the biscuits if you poked them with a fork if that would keep it from bubbling over. Thanks so much for the wonderful recipes and keep them coming, Please. Have a wonderful day and God Bless.

    1. If could feed 12 with a good size square or more, if you cut them smaller 🙂 You could poke it. I never had that problem, but it could work 🙂 Hope that helps and let me know what you think 🙂 Thank you!

  9. Made this last night..Thank you for a quick and easy and delish meal. Even tasted great for my lunch today at work 🙂

  10. I made this tonight and cooked it on 375
    By accident. Still came out great. The biscuits could probably have been done a little more if i used the right temp but they aren’t undercooked and I figure I will just reheat in the oven anyway. My question, do you think once baked this would freeze well? It made waay more than I was expecting. Thanks! ????

  11. 5 stars
    This was fantastic! Only changes: 375 oven, and I cooked a pound of pork sausage before adding it (I couldn’t find the pre-cooked crumbles). Will absolutely be making again!

  12. 5 stars
    Love this! Only had flaky biscuits and not sure if thats why, but some eggs got underneath. Came out layered! Oh so yummy! Glass pan, 425*, 22 minutes. Perfection! Thank you! This will now be a regular in our home.

    1. 5 stars
      I have made this recipe several TIMES & everyone loves it! Only thing I can figure out is why everytime the eggs ends UP as the bottom layer?!

      1. I am glad they do!! Yeah, they do & never know what makes it end up that way, but it does & we love it?

  13. Do you throw the jimmy dean sausage into reipe while it is still frozen? I got the bag that has sausage, potaties, green peppers and onions. Wasnt sure if i just throw that in frozen?

  14. Any tips to help me turn this into a freezer meal? Cook it and then freeze it? or assemble, freeze, then bake? Thanks!

    1. Hmm..good question! I haven’t tried freezing it. I would probably bake it, then freeze it. Then I would just warm it up before serving. It might work, before cooking, too. I will have to try it!

  15. 5 stars
    I tried this as a brunch for Mother and I. We both LOVE it! Thank you so much for an easy prep, delicious meal idea.

  16. I made this for dinner tonight and hubby and I both loved it! It turned out perfect. I’m wondering if you have the nutritional info…especially the calories? I have lost 30 lbs. (yay, me!) and have 50 to go. Thaks for this fabulous recipe!

    1. That is so awesome to hear!! You go girl!! Unfortunately, I do not have the nutritional info. There are sites though that can convert it 🙂 Keep it up!

      1. I added up the calories for each ingredient then divided by 10 servings and came up with approximate calories per serving. Leftovers for dinner tonight!!

  17. Any idea that the number of servings it is and the amount of carbs are per serving? I only ask because I’m diabetic and need to plan my carb intake very closely.

    1. I am sorry, I do not have the nutrition information. There are sites you can convert recipe. You can get anywhere from 12-16 servings, depending on how big you cut them.

  18. Do you think this is adaptable for the crockpot? I’m bringing it to work and want to keep it warm. Thanks!

    1. I am sure it could, though I have not tried, so I am not sure how I would exactly do it. I would need to experiment to see what works.

  19. Ok I’ve made this twice. I followed the recipe to the T the first time and 425 had my kitchen smelling like burnt biscuits. The 2nd time I set the oven to 400 and everything looked good until I cut the casserole. Everything was cooked but the cheese and sausage cooked around the biscuit which left it dry like it needed syrup or something. So I will not be making again.

  20. 4 stars
    Hi! My friend made this for me and it was so good!! I have a question, could I use homemade biscuit dough? Also would bacon work?

  21. I will have a house full of guests for our annual reunion, will give this a try for Sunday breakfast, sounds great for a crowd…will try it with crumbled bacon since I will have biscuits and Sausage Gravy on Saturday…thanks for the recipe

      1. 4 stars
        Mine was all gooey inside with egg uncooked in the middle. It was easy to prepare. All the sides was nice brown but to prevent burn on the bottom I may have to lower the temp

  22. 5 stars
    This was a quick and easy recipe. I read through the comments before making it and saw that some people had trouble with over/undercooking it. I set my timer for 20 minutes and just kept an eye on it. Mine cooked in about 28 minutes.
    I also made mine 1/2 sausage and 1/2 bacon. The combination was delicious!

  23. 5 stars
    I love sausage, so I couldn’t wait to try this!! It was so easy!! I can’t wait to make it for extended family! They will love it. It was cheesy & you could also add more meat or cheese to make it to your liking.

  24. 5 stars
    Where has this recipe been all my life? It was just as easy as could be, and the results were amaaaaazing. this recipe is a keeper.

  25. 5 stars
    A great way to serve up breakfast when your in a Rush. Doesnt take much effort and can feed a few people. A nice alternative to biscuits and gravy.

  26. 5 stars
    I can’t believe how easy & tasty this was!! My kids gobbled it up! I love that you can add bacon, peppers, whatever you like.

  27. 5 stars
    Another great recipe with all the flavors of breakfast all in one. Who doesnt love the ease of breakfast in a casserole dish and you can make it ahead of time? Quick and convienent!

  28. While I do appreciate the nutritional info, it doesn’t help much unless the number of servings is given. People’s portions can & do vary greatly. Thanks.

    I looked on Pinterest for Christmas breakfast ideas and this recipe came up. It looked simple enough and Made plenty for all the family visitng. It was such a huge hit that several people asked for the recipe and have since made it themselves. I’ve made it at least twice a week since Christmas, it’s that good!

    The only thing i changed is that i use both sausage and bacon, because why not? And i use 9 eggs instead of 6, because agAin, why Not? Tip: when re-heating Leftovers, Cut the portion Into a couple sliCes and put a little Pat of butter in between each slice so that it is not dry.

    This is a simple but excellent classic breakfast casserole that i will be keeping in my meal rotation.

    Oh Kristyn, Perfect timing! My daughter & her family are coming for my son’s wedding & this will be great! thank you for all your great recipes.

  35. 5 stars
    I made this last night for the first time and the only change made was I used heavy whipping cream + water in place of the milk. The cheddar used was garlic & herb-flavored and the Jimmy Dean crumbles used were a combo of bacon and sausage. Tasted great! Might would add one more egg in future preparations, but loved it as is. 🙂


    1. Since, it’s will run under, but it all cooks together & makes it turn out the way it does 🙂

  36. 5 stars
    I made the 8×8 version as written, except I used pepper jack cheese instead of mozzarella. It turned out great! I think green peppers and onion would be a good addition, and I wonder about topping it with some kind of sauce. Has anyone tried this?

  37. I would like to make this for 100 people and have 18x12x3 lasagna roasters, can you please tell me how much more will i have to alter the recipe. Also how many people will 1-18x12x3 pan serve?

    thank you for your time,

    1. Well, depending on how big you cut the squares, you could get 12 bigger & 16 smaller squares, so if you stuck to 12 bigger ones..that is x the recipe by 8. If you did smaller sizes, you would need to times the recipe by 6. I haven’t used that size of pan before, but maybe 16 nice size pieces? I’m not really sure, but it would depend on how big/small you cut them. Hope that all helps! Good luck!

  38. 5 stars
    never been big on breakfast casseroles. this is a keeper! after reading reviews I decided to decrease the temp to 375, especially since I was using glass, and bake 20 min. it HADN’T browned yet so I put it in for another 5 min. then it only browned on one side, so I increased the temp to 425, rotated DISH 180, and put in 1 minute. yum!

  39. 4 stars
    I followed the instructions step by step for the 8×8/half but the middle was runny after 25 minutes. I couldnt cook it longer because the top would be burnt. HOw do i fix/stop this?

  40. 5 stars
    My family went crazy for this! I used microwave brown and serve links chopped up and added a layer of green chilis. Baked for 30 mins at 425 and it was puffy and gorgeous. Served it with a bowl of warmed salsa. Perfect!

  41. 5 stars
    This is my go to for every egg BIscuit cassEroLe. It is east, delicious and everyone raves about it. There are many different breakfast casseroles out there but this one is my choice!!

  42. 5 stars
    I cooked a pound of sausage before hand then followed the recipe. I did 30 minutes at 400° and it turned out perfectly! I’m also in co so at high altitude. It did puff up but did not spill over the sides. Delicious! I also add syrup to this as a topping (weird, I know) BUT oh so good!

  43. 5 stars
    I love this recipe. I’ve made it a few times now, adding new ingredients each time. I have noticed though, my biscuit dough always ends up at the top..which isnt so bad but I see your pictures it stays at the bottom of the dish. Any tips?

    1. That’s a good question?! I honestly don’t know why it would sink, versus coming to the top. It’s just how mine always turns out..haha.

  44. 5 stars
    I found this recipe a couple yrs ago anD my son fell in love with it! It’s one of his fav go to meals for breakfast and dinner. The only thing I do different when i make it is that I use 2 cups of each cheese. I would definitely recommend this caSserole to anyone.

  45. 5 stars
    Very Tasty and easy to make. the egg layer ended up on the bottom of pan. not sure how since i had it pressed in the dough very well. will have to experimnet on next batch.
    cooked at 400 in glass dish 9×13 for 28 min at it was about right.

  46. Thanks for this recipe! We made this recipe for a group of people and had trouble with the biscuits not baking. Have you ever had this trouble?

  47. Can you start out with eggs that are already scrambled? I’d love to try this, but my daughter refuses to eat baked eggs of any kind (texture issues).

    1. The eggs help form the batter part of the casserole, so not sure how it would turn out if you used scrambled eggs. You can’t tell once it’s baked 😉

  48. I have made this casserole for several years now for our Christmas Brunch…..only thing different is I make a package of Pioneer Brand Peppered Sausage Gravy Mix & pour it over the top & I also cut the biscuits into quarters. It is a family favorite. So easy & good. My nephew likes it so much that I make him one for his birthday & he is so happy!!!

  49. 5 stars
    This recipe is much requested at our house. Just made it for a family Christmas brunch and it disappeared in just a few minutes. We’ve tried it with green chilies on top too- so yummy!

  50. 5 stars
    This is a favorite! My husband won’t do sweet for breakfast, so this is what were making for Christmas breakfast this year!

  51. I’m going to have 6 people for breakfast Christmas morning so this is what I have decided to make for them. I will more than likely be adding green onions on top. I do like the idea of adding peppers and tomato to it and maybe even some mushroom. I do want to put it all together tonight but I am worried that the biscuits will absorb too much egg and be soggy….Has anyone tried waiting for morning to bake it? Maybe this is why some peoples biscuits are floating to the top?

  52. 5 stars
    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.

  53. 5 stars
    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! 🙂

  54. 5 stars
    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!

  55. 5 stars
    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!
