Thursdays Are For Cooking

| December 3, 2020

The Gun Bunny has presented us TAHers with a truly scrumptious concoction that will wake you up and make you happy. Gun Bunny’s sausage, egg, cheese, biscuit and gravy casserole recipe. There is also the GB suggestion that it should be consumed with AW1Ed’s cheese and grits with shrimp and bacon dish.

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16 oz) can jumbo buttermilk biscuits
  • 1 lb hot sausage, cooked & crumbled
  • 2 cups Colby & Monterey Jack cheeses, shredded
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 (2.75 oz) packet country sausage gravy
  • 2 cups water

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350f degrees
  • Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray
  • Cut each biscuit into eighths.
  • Line bottom of the pan with the biscuits.
  • Sprinkle cooked sausage evenly over biscuits.
  • Then sprinkle shredded cheese over sausage.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs with milk (for two minutes) and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  • Pour egg mixture over the cheese layer.
  • In a medium bowl, combine packet of gravy mix with 2 cups water.
  • Whisk until combined.
  • Pour gravy over egg mixture layer.
  • Cover and bake for about 45-55 minutes.
  • Slice and serve!

Now since it is likely that not much of this dish will remain when the meal is finished, clear the table, help with the dishes and go watch a good football game or take the dogs and the young ones for a walk in the woodlands. Point out the squirrels, the geese flying and the other critters rustling around in the undergrowth.

And a hearty thank you! to Gun Bunny et familia for sharing this with us.

    His Blessing unto you Mi’Lady. Papa’s Precious, aka…Daddy’s Darlin’ Dumplin’ Daughter makes it a habit to provide her Papa with this one when he comes down for his visits. It is a go to for the crowds of the Holiday Gatherings and when it is just us. Very filling and has that whole “one dish cooking” that our beloved AW1Ed is all about. I have shared it thru-out the land, and like any other recipe, it is for guideline only. Any type of grounded beast can be used and the addition of onyuns, peppers,scallions, chives, or other veggies/seasonings has been done.

    Momma made it way back yonder, she said it was one of the few decent uses of a can of whomp bisquits. Y’all try it, you’ll like it. Be careful serving this and the cheese grits with shrimps and bacon tho, the guests may never leave.

    Tanks Matey!

    Can you make it the night before, refrigerate, the bake in the morning? Maybe New Year’s Day…

    • My, My, My says:

      OOPS, mistyped my email. Original is pending moderation.

      However, it said (sorry for double tap):

      Only if you don’t have a wife or kid…… 🙂

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      Why not? Just don’t let the “dry” items get soggy.

      • 5th/77th FA says:

        IIRC she will make this one and the sausage eggs and grits one up ahead, the night before, and pop it in the oven the next morning. On this one I think she may have the liquid mix in a separate container and do the final mix just prior to the baking. Short term memory is only hitting on cylinders 3,5,& 8 and it has been a year since I’ve had this (DAMN IT!!!) and maybe 2 + years since I was involved in the prep. I’ll check to make sure.

        • 5th/77th FA says:

          Confirmation from the Chef. She ALWAYS make it up COMPLETELY the night before, sticks in the frigidare and bakes the next morning…no issues. And yeah, no leftovers either.

  3. OWB says:

    Are the biscuits cooked ahead of time? Looks like not. Or maybe not??

    Might have to try this real soon. Just bought a big pkg of Jimmy Dean sausage. But, got no canned biscuits or pkg’d gravy mix. Hmmm. Maybe will look at one of those pkgs to see what sort of volume it makes. As long as there’s a pan being dirtied up to fry up the sausage, why not just use it to make regular gravy to use with this recipe? 2 cups of water mixed with the gravy mix – well 2 cups of milk with the home made gravy should work just fine. Or 2 generous cups of gravy. Or something.

    • 5th/77th FA says:

      Biscuit dough uncooked. Some folks I’ve sent this too will make up fresh biscuits (Mama did) from scratch or different types of breads/rolls, yeast/sourdough/rye/ect. And good to go at this station on the homemade gravy too. If you haven’t tried them, the Pioneer Brand of Gravy Mixes are pretty dang good. The Sausage Flavored Country Style adds a pretty good bite so be careful with that one. Keep in mind, her idea is to keep the prep simple for her and not too spicy for the picky eatin’ young’uns and/or the diet restricted adults that may be at table.

      And yepper, NHSparky, chiles go good here for some. So do ‘shrooms. And again, grounded beast of any sort for those that can’t do pork. Beef, chicken, turkey, venison.

    Needs green chiles. Fight me.

    • SFC D says:

      Green chiles go on everything. Maybe I’ve been living on the border too long.

    • The Stranger says:

      I’ll see your green chiles and raise you Poblanos!

    • Poetrooper says:

      In New Mexico, green chiles (In Spanish it’s spelled with one “i”) are loved more than bacon.

      If that’s humanly possible…

      • KoB says:

        “…loved more than bacon.” Blasphemous! That ranks right up there with all of those gunz reviews that like to compare others to his most Saintly JMB (Hbhn)

        Go rinse your mouf out with a gravy covered cat head…and a bowl of cheese grits!

      • SFC D says:

        Stuff that green Chile with queso y chorizo, wrap it in bacon, and grill it. A staple at D’s Cantina.

      • Sea Dragon says:

        About the only thing they don’t go into is my coffee. Now red chile….

    Just popping in to say hi 🙂
    Any recipe that I make, for the most part, is good and easy because I’m both picky and lazy when it comes to cooking. The picture on this post was taking Thanksgiving morning after I pulled it out of the oven. I made up all the ingredients the night before (everything raw except the sausage) and it turns out great. It’s possible it would be even better if it was prepared and baked right away but I doubt I will ever find out because I’m also not a morning person. 😉

    • OWB says:

      Thanks for sharing, both the recipe and the pic. It looks and sounds delicious.

      Nobody is lazier than me! It just is not possible. Been trying to figure out how to brown the sausage, make the gravy, and cook the whole thing without getting a second pan dirty! And, I think I’ve just about got it.

      Fry the sausage, then make gravy in that pan. Dump the gravy into a bowl, then start layering the rest of the stuff in the original pan. Will check the volume to be sure, but the cast iron skillet I usually use looks like it would hold about a 9 x 13 pan’s worth of goodies.

      Am liking the idea more and more of using canned biscuits for this just because of not getting another bowl dirty!

    Finally tried this. It was GREAT!

    If it is better assembled the night before and baked the next morning, I will never know. It was pretty terrific done all at once. No need to alter that sequence.

    Next time I will try a lighter cheese. The store had Borden brand cheese on sale and all they had was cheddar, so used the sharp cheddar today. As good as that was, can see that a milder cheese might be even better.

    Thanks again! This is definitely a keeper.

    • KoB says:

      Tanks OWB. I will let Daddy’s Darlin’ Dumplin’ Daughter AKA The Sugar Bug know. She was on her way to pick him up for Her Birthday/Christmas when a call came in with a confirmed new plan for getting him to her. She will be pleased that you liked it and responded. There is another one that she makes that uses grits with sausage and eggs that is downright tasty too. I sent that to Ex. If it doesn’t make a posting, I’ll pop it in one of comments.

      I’ll be snacking on them the week upcoming.
