How to make easy biscuits and gravy.

You know what’s a great phrase for a satisfying meal? Sticks to your ribs.

Sure, it’s kind of goofy. At first, it sounds like the food is supposed to stick to your ribs from the outside, as if you were wearing a vest made out of pancakes or something. But once you realize it’s sticking to your ribs from the inside, then it just really captures the whole idea of a meal that will keep you full and satisfied for hours.

My Biscuits and Gravy Breakfast Casserole is a hot breakfast that will really stick to your ribs. Not a dainty little coffee-and-Danish breakfast, which is tasty but melts away by mid-morning. This here is a breakfast that will keep you chugging along right until lunchtime.

The recipe makes a nice big batch, which is great for feeding a houseful of hungry guests (like, say, family visiting over the holidays, which are just around the corner…. omigosh). But if you don’t have that many to feed, it’s pretty easy to cut the recipe in half.

And, if you still end up with leftovers, this dish is just as good reheated the next day. It sticks to your ribs…and sticks around for more!

NOTE: Fans LOVE the gravy so much, that many have reported making a double batch of gravy for this recipe so they can have extra. If you are a gravy fan, perhaps that is a good idea for you too!

    Just made it and its yummy although I used only 1can of biscuits and I think I need a little bit more milk but so good

  2. So glad I saw this on Pinterest and made this! It was a hit. I needed something to feed my teenage son that he would eat and love-this was it!!!
    I read the comments before I made this. I followed original recipe but have to agree on what I read; while the recipe IS delicious it does indeed need to be tweaked the next time I make it. I did use 2 large 16 ounce cans for my 9 x 13 dish-one can of biscuits for the bottom layer and one for the top layer. Also, I did find I wanted this to be a little more “saucy” after it was baked. So either I use the recipe as is and a smaller dish or make more gravy. regardless of my future tweaks this was a hit and will be made again! Thanks for sharing this!!!

  3. Looks fabulous but I’m not a canned biscuit fan. Do you think it would work with made from scratch or even frozen?

    All I can say is WOW! This looks like my cup of tea (or gravy). I can do this. Many thanks!

  5. 4 stars
    Like some of the other reviewers said, it was just too much biscuit. The gravy came out great (I used more milk), but if I’d just used one can of biscuits, it would’ve been perfect! Too filling with all that biscuit; now I can’t move and just want to take a nap. lol

    1. Is it possible to make this ahead and freeze? So I am confused. Some of the comments say not to use 2 cans of biscuits? One was good enough and 2 made it too dry? Can you please Clarify?
