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!

    I only had one can of biscuits on hand so it turned out perfect for me! Thanks for the recipe!

  2. SandyBear says:

    I just found this recipe. We always use canned biscuits for biscuits & gravy so this looks delicious. I am definitely going to try this recipe.

  3. Can you put this together a day or two beforehand and then cook it? Or can you cook it and put it in the fridge or a couple days? Want to make it on a Thursday and only have to cook it Sunday morning.

    1. Donna, this is definitely best fresh. It is “re-heatable” but better fresh for sure. I think your best bet would be to put it together only 1 day before, cover and refrigerate until ready to bake. I hope that helps!

    2. I’m curious to know how this turns out if you make it the day before?

    3. Crystal VanHunnik says:

      Did you try putting this together the night before? And baked it the day of? Did it turn out?

    4. Elizabeth says:

      When in put it together the night before did u bake the biscuits at the bottom first?

    I read the recipe as two 16oz cans of biscuits. So I bought two. After reading the comments, I decided to double the gravy. I did this by doing 1/2 cup of flour, four cups of milk, 1tsp pepper and kept salt and garlic powder the same. I also bought the butter flaky biscuits instead of brushing butter on them. This was a huge hit!! Sooo yummy!
