This dish combines all the savory satisfaction of this true Southern staple with the shareable ease of a casserole. In one dish, you'll have golden brown biscuits, homemade gravy and the impossible-not-to-love addition of melted cheese on top. It's the perfect indulgent dish for a lazy Sunday.

- 1 Pound pork breakfast sausage
- 3 Cups milk
- 1 can of buttermilk biscuits
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 2 Cups cheddar cheese, or a cheese of your choice
- 1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 Teaspoon salt
- 1/2 Teaspoon pepper
Preheat the oven to 350℉. Spray cooking spray on a 13x9-inch baking dish, glass preferred.
In a skillet, cook sausage over medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Once thoroughly cooked and browned, transfer sausage to the baking dish.
Add butter to the skillet (don’t clean) and melt over medium heat. Add salt, pepper, and flour and cook for 1-2 minutes until beginning to brown and thickening. Stir in the milk, and continue to stir as you bring the mixture to a simmer. Continue to cook and stir for another 1-3 minutes until thickened. Pour mixture over sausage in the baking dish.
Separate the buttermilk biscuit dough into 8 individual biscuits. Cut each of those individual biscuits into fourths and place over the sausage and gravy mixture in the baking dish. Sprinkle cheese to cover as desired.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until the cheese is melted and biscuits are golden brown.
