Biscuit Casserole Ingredients

  • canned biscuits
  • ground breakfast sausage
  • eggs
  • shredded cheese

Biscuit Egg Casserole Substitutions

  • Canned biscuits – there really isn’t a substitute for this. I have not tried it with homemade biscuits.
  • Breakfast sausage – you can replace the breakfast sausage with any of your favorite breakfast meats like ham or ground turkey sausage.
  • Eggs – I don’t recommend replacing the eggs for egg whites or egg substitute. It does not result in the same texture or consistency.
  • Cheese – You can omit the cheese entirely if you’d prefer not to have it.

Biscuit Casserole Tips and Variations

  • To make this dairy-free, be sure to use dairy-free biscuits and dairy-free cheese. You can also omit the cheese entirely.
  • Be sure to use a flavorful breakfast sausage. If you do, you don’t need to add extra seasoning to the eggs.
  • If your breakfast sausage is really fatty, be sure to drain off the grease after cooking. You don’t want it in the casserole.
  • We like Pillsbury Grands biscuits the best, but any of your favorite canned biscuits will work.

    Wish I had read the comments first, because mine also took close to 40 minutes to cook. At 20, the biscuits were still raw enough to be stretchy, though the eggs and cheese were done. Would make again, but would either parbake the biscuits or put them on top.

  2. I made recipe exactly as says and it still took a lot longer than recommended. I would say atleast 40 minutes. But it was really good once we got it fully cooked.

  3. 5 stars
    This recipe is great! Even my picky eaters love it. It does take wayyy longer than suggested time. I’ve tried using different size dishes but following the recipe exactly, it still takes much longer to cook.

  4. 5 stars
    I used your recipe,then added mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, and bacon. Thank you for sharing. God bless

    1. Love that! So glad y’all enjoyed it! Thanks for coming back and leaving the review. I really appreciate it!

  5. 4 stars
    It’s an amazing recipe, wonderfully simple and delicious. However I did find that I needed to cook it a little longer than 20 minutes for the eggs to be done, perhaps because I added onions and peppers to the mix or the temperature of the biscuits. I’d use room-temp biscuits and room- temp eggs.

    1. Thanks so much for your kind comment! The onions and peppers will add moisture, so very likely the reason it needed additional time. I’m so glad you liked it! The addition of onions and peppers sounds delicious.

      1. 5 stars
        Thanks for the reply, I didn’t think about the added moisture so thanks for the tip. I used poblano peppers and a yellow onion and the mixture was wonderful. I also used vegan sausage (Beyond brand) and it was perfect. I want to try one with broccoli and cheddar, and another with spinach/tomato.

    2. I have a question, wondering if anyone could help me. If I Have one can of biscuits & We eat bacon not sausage. It’s a household of 2 ppl. How can I make this recipe? I do have a smaller pan. Obviously I would cut the biscuits but how many eggs would I use instead? & Pre-cook the bacon. Would I put the bacon in substitution of where you put the sausage? Or would I sprinkle it on top? What would the oven temp be? And how long would I cook it for? I would greatly appreciate any feedback from ANYONE! TYVM!! CAT

      1. Hi Cindy. I would definitely pre-cook the bacon. Where it goes in the casserole would be your preference. If you put it where the sausage normally is, it’ll be a bit softer. If you sprinkle it on top, it’ll be a bit crispier. Just personal preference. In terms of cooking time and the number of eggs, that greatly depends on the size of the dish you’d be using.
