My Mom loves biscuits and gravy. Up until a few years ago it usually was something she’d get while out to breakfast. However, over the last few years I’ve been making it at home. I like making it as I can usually give it a little be of a lighter/healthier take! This casserole is exactly that. This recipe is definitely different than my other homemade biscuits and gravy recipe. I like this recipe because the flavors scream biscuits and gravy but the fat, not so much!
Give this recipe a try and please comment how you like it!
Light Biscuits & Gravy Casserole
6 oz pork sausage, cooked and drained
1 1/2 cups egg beaters
3/4 cup reduced fat cheese
1 country sausage packet (I use McCormick, try and look for a reduced sodium if possible)
4 grands biscuits, cut into bite size pieces
Directions: Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray. Prepare the gravy with water per package, set aside. Evenly spread the biscuits on the bottom of the pan. Add the egg beaters to the pan and top with the gravy. Next sprinkle the sausage over the top and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and top with cheese and bake for 10 more minutes. Take out the casserole and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving. I cut a piece and add some of the sauce from the casserole right on top! Enjoy!
Notes: You can use turkey sausage for even healthier take, personally I don’t like the flavor as much. Sometimes you can even find reduce fat biscuits, those would work great as well.
