How to Make Biscuits and Gravy Casserole

Add butter to a hot 10-inch cast-iron skillet. (Note, you do not have to use cast iron, any skillet that is oven-safe is fine.)

Then, add your breakfast sausage and break it up with a wooden spoon. Cook until sausage is a golden brown and fully done.

Next, stir in the flour, salt, and pepper. Keep cooking until the meat is done.

Gradually stir in the milk and let the mixture come to a boil. Simmer a few more minutes until your gravy is thickened and creamy.

Prepare the Bisquick mix, then drop biscuits by spoonfuls on top of the warm sausage gravy. Bake until biscuits begin to turn golden brown.

Brush biscuits with melted butter and serve immediately.

Can You Make This Biscuits and Gravy Casserole Ahead?

Save even more time when making your biscuits and gravy skillet by making your sausage gravy the night before!

After following the recipe for the gravy, allow it to cool. Add the gravy to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to two days.

Reheat before adding your drop biscuits when you’re ready to eat your skillet biscuits and gravy.

Can You Freeze Sausage Gravy?

Unfortunately, I’ve found that milk-based gravies like this one do not freeze well, as it tends to separate when thawing.

I hope you enjoy our wonderful biscuits and gravy skillet as much as my family does!

Sausage Gravy

  • 1 lb. ground breakfast sausage, hot or mild
  • 3 tablespoons butter, divided
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 3 to 3 ½ cups whole milk


  • 2 ¼ cups Bisquick original
  • ⅔ cup whole milk


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. Crumble sausage with 2 tablespoons of butter into a 10-inch (mine is actually 10.25") cast-iron skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until completely browned and thoroughly cooked.
  3. Stir in the flour, salt and the pepper until combined, continue to cook for a minute or so, continuing to stir so it doesn’t stick.
  4. Gradually add the milk, pouring with one hand and stirring with the other. Allow the gravy mixture to come to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn down to a simmer and allow to cook another 3 to 4 minutes or until thickened then turn off while making the biscuits.
  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the Bisquick and the milk until a soft dough forms. Drop by spoonfuls onto the top of the gravy. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  6. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in the microwave. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the melted butter. Serve immediately.

  2. I love the new blog! These are the kind of recipes I want to see. Great idea! Keep them coming.

    • Thank you SOOO much for a brilliant recipe! On biscuits and gravy….I always made th3m all seperately then combined.

      Making the roux gravy AROUND the cooked sausage….in the same pan? Brilliant!

      Then plopping bisquick drp biscuits into the gravy to cook? Amazing. (Ps I have loved you for decades!)

      Simply an amazing, brilliant recipe. ..thank you!

  3. This looks like a recipe that my whole family will love! Trying it this week!

  4. Do you think this recipe could be modified to add frozen biscuits on top in place of the Bisquick?

    • Hey Hannah, while I haven’t tried it, I’d say if the cook time for the frozen biscuits is close to the cook time for the drop biscuits, it should be fine! I love the frozen Grands! Buttermilk style biscuits, so I’m going to try it too. I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙂

  5. Thank you. This looks amazing and easy. Can’t wait to try it.

  6. This is a regular receipt at our house. However I add onions and garlic to my pan before I fry the sausage. My family love the change in taste it brings.

  7. My most favorite comfort meal!! Thank you for making it easier!

  8. Thanks for the recipe. Love the Golden Girls photo after email sign up!! Congrats.

  9. We don’t have Bisquick in South Africa – please share a recipe to make biscuits for this meal.

    • Hi Renee, I should have thought of that. I’ll be sure to add a homemade drop biscuits recipe soon, but until then, here’s an easy one for you to follow.

    • I love how easy your recipes are. They’re still delicious and big plus they don’t require a ton of ingredients. I’m so glad I found this site. Oh and quick to make too. You have got to be a parent. Only negative is….I wish I found you sooner.

  10. I am going to fix this for Breakfast tomorrow morning! Thanks for sharing

  11. Hi Crissy … it is great to find someone that puts love for Jesus above all else and is not afraid or embarrassed to declare their faith to the world. This looks like the blog I have been looking for with recipes that the whole family will love (we are a family of mostly picky eaters).

  12. Hi! I would like to know if your recipes can be E-mailed to myself? I didn’t find an envelope or anything I recognized. Thanks

  13. They way I interpret it is… you have the sausage gravy in your cast iron skillet.  In a separate bowl mix the bisquik and milk.  Then spoon drop that dough into the sausage gravy.  Then put the cast iron skillet in the oven.  They turn out awesome that way.
