Biscuits, Sausage and Gravy Egg Bake

Wednesday, November 27, 2013

The holidays are upon us, my friends, and you know what that means?  Family and friend sleepovers.  Let's be honest with ourselves, if you are a Nana or someone like me (still in my 20's might I add but this applies to everyone), you will have people staying over at your house.  Have kids that live far away  ? They will be staying at your house.  Host a kick ass party and people drink to much? Those slobs will be at your house.  The moral of the story is, there will be sleepovers.  

And, there is nothing better than a hot egg bake to enjoy while the little ones run around, or while you nurse your hangover.  I think this one will be a real crowd pleaser this holiday season.  

Start by cracking a few eggs and sprinkling in some Seasoned Salt.  This is my favorite kind.
Pour in some milk and give it a good whisk.
Scramble as you normally would...low heat, keep stirring, stirring and scraping. Just until they are fully cooked but not dry!
Meanwhile, add a few sausage links to a frying pan.  These were precooked turkey sausages but I wanted to add a bit of color to them.  Either way, cook up some sausage till it is no longer pink.
Enlist a strapping, freckle-handed man to assist in the cutting...and set aside.
Next, melt some butter in a pan
Add in some flour and let it cook for a few minutes
Pour in some milk and stir until it thickens.
Meanwhile (my assistant helped with this) take a few refrigerated biscuits and cut them each into four pieces.
Once the white gravy has thickened, add the salt
And a good amount of black pepper
Spray a baking dish and place the biscuits on the bottom of the pan
Layer with the eggs
And pour the gravy over the whole shootin' match
It will look a little something like this.
Pop it into the oven and it will come out looking like this.  The little biscuits will have risen and everything has become acquainted with each other.
That is some serious breakfast comfort food
To curing all hangovers!


Biscuits and Gravy Egg Bake
(serves 6 in a 9x9 pan)

5 eggs
1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt (this is my favorite kind)
1 3/4 cups milk, divided
Cooking spray
1 1/2 cups cooked sausage (I used precooked turkey sausage)
1 7.5 oz can of refrigerated biscuits
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Combine the eggs, seasoned salt and 1/4 cup of the milk in a small bowl.  Whisk to combine.  Pour eggs into a frying pan, sprayed with cooking spray.  Cook the eggs on medium low, stirring, stirring and scraping the whole time until no longer wet and fully cooked.  Set aside for now.

Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces and place in the bottom of a sprayed with cooking spray 9x9 pan.  Set aside for now.

Get to work on the gravy.  Start by melting the butter in a sauce pan on medium heat, once melted, add the flour and cook for 2 minutes or so while stirring.  Pour in the milk and whisk until it thickens.  Season with salt and lots of black pepper.

To assemble, add the eggs on top of the biscuits, then add the cooked sausage.  Pour the gravy over the top and pop it in the oven for about 35 minutes or until hot and bubbly.

Remove from the oven and serve immediately!

PS. This recipe does not re-heat very well. Just an FYI. Eat all of it the day you make it.  That shouldn't be a problem.
