Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375° fahrenheit.

Coat a 7×11-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.

For the casserole, brown sausage in a sauté pan over medium heat, breaking into chunks; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Reserve drippings for sage gravy.

Whisk together eggs, 1¼ cups milk, cream, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon black pepper in a large measuring cup; set aside.

Layer biscuit bottoms in prepared dish. Sprinkle half the sausage over biscuits, top with half the Cheddar, and add biscuit tops. Pour egg mixture over top; bake 30 minutes.

Sprinkle remaining Cheddar over top and bake casserole until center is set, an instant-read thermometer registers 165° fahrenheit, and a toothpick inserted into a biscuit comes out clean, 10–15 minutes more. Let casserole sit 10 minutes.

For the gravy, melt butter in reserved sausage drippings in a sauté pan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until smooth; cook 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in 2 cups milk until mixture is smooth.

Cook gravy until slightly thickened, 5–8 minutes. Stir in sage and pepper flakes. Season gravy with salt and black pepper.
