I’ve had to learn to cook some new things since I got married. It’s a good thing that I’ll try just about anything, right?
We had quite the blend of food growing up at my house. My mom was a military kid, so her family moved around a lot, and she ended up loving seafood and Chinese. My dad was raised in Florida from the time he was 5, so he loved a few southern dishes, but his favorite was Italian, and he also was a fan of your basic meat-and-potatoes fare. That made for quite the variety at our house!
Now, my husband’s family are ALL southern. And they eat like it, too! I had never heard of putting gravy on your cantaloupe, or CHOCOLATE gravy, for that matter! Or drinking buttermilk with corn bread?! WHAT?!?!
I was familiar with the general biscuits and gravy dish, though, but recently I found a recipe that my husband LOVES. It’s a Biscuits & Gravy Casserole. Easy peasy, yummy, and sure to become a family favorite of yours, too! I found this recipe via Pinterest (surprise surprise surprise!) HERE, and I discovered that this particular recipe was created by the lovely Kelley over at Miss Information HERE. Definitely take time to go check her blog out – she’s got TONS of fantastic recipes! But I put my own spin on this one, so…
…let’s dig in!
Biscuits & Gravy Casserole
1 pound mild Jennie-O turkey sausage
1 2.64-oz. McCormick Sausage Flavor Country Gravy Mix
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup milk
1 pint heavy cream
Salt & pepper to taste
1 teaspoon minced onion
1 can (16.3 oz.) Bisquick Bakery butter flavored biscuits

Take a 9×13 pan and spray it with non-stick cooking spray. Then cut the biscuits into 1″ pieces…
…and line bottom of pan.
