If you’ve been around Spaceships and Laser Beams very long, you know that I love food.

A lot.

It’s a love language in my family. Time spent in the kitchen together preparing meals and then around the table enjoying those meals are some of my favorite ways to show my love and create memories.

This is even more true around the holiday season.

We spend a lot of time in the kitchen when the weather starts getting cold.

Warm, hearty recipes and delicious, sweet treats straight from the oven make my taste buds so happy… and make my house smell heavenly.

There are a number of delicious recipes that I only make during this time of year. I think they’re even yummier because of that!

Of course, good company goes hand in hand with good food.

With a group of hungry guys under my roof, I have no shortage of opportunities to fill their bellies with tasty morsels.

We also spend a lot of time with friends and family during the holiday season. Sometimes it’s gatherings at someone else’s house and sometimes it’s a quick popover at mine. I cherish them all.

Whenever we’re headed to a get together, someone always asks for me to bring a special recipe. I¬†think it’s a hazard of my job. ūüėČ

I’m happy to oblige the special requests though! I love serving tried and true favorites or testing out a new idea.

This easy sausage breakfast casserole recipe is a favorite stand by for us. It’s perfect for brunch gatherings or Christmas morning.

I love how easily it comes together with a handful of great ingredients. I’m able to quickly assemble the casserole and pop it in the oven.

When we have a houseful of guests, I don’t want to be trapped in the kitchen, slaving over a labor intensive meal.¬†Especially during the busy holidays, I’m all about simple, filling recipes!

This casserole is also a great option if you have last minute guests stopping by. Or someone gets snowed in! ūüôā

Another way I help save my sanity during the busy holidays is shopping smart.¬†When I’m busy during the holidays, I’m all about being efficient! I love the ease and convenience of being able to find everything I need at once.

Steps for Making an Easy Sausage and Egg Casserole

How to Make Easy Sausage Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large skillet brown 1 pound Jimmy Dean Refrigerated Roll Sausage over medium heat. Remove sausage from the skillet and set aside.

Add 2 tablespoons of bacon grease OR butter to the pan.  Once melted, whisk in 1/4 cup flour.  The grease and flour will form a paste.  Slowly whisk in milk. Continue whisking until no lumps remain. Add salt and pepper to taste.  Simmer gravy over medium-low heat until thickened, about 15 minutes

While the gravy is cooking, whisk together eggs and 2/3 cup milk.  Add salt and pepper.  Add cheese and sausage to the eggs and mix well.

Spray 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray.¬† Tear biscuits in to small pieces and place them in the 9×13 baking dish. Pour the egg mixture over the biscuits.

Pour 2 cups of gravy evenly on top of the casserole.  Reserve remaining gravy to serve with the casserole.

Bake casserole for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve warm. You can choose to garnish with chopped green onion and top with remaining gravy as well.

Everyone I have made this breakfast for has loved it.

When I’m serving a crowd, I like to give guests bowl of yogurt and fruit as well.

Although this casserole is certainly hearty enough to be enjoyed alone!
