Everyone should have some go-to breakfast recipes to whip out when you need them. I love it when friends and family come to stay and we all sit around for hours the next morning, drinking coffee, having a fire if the season is right, and – of course – talking around the table with a nice, big breakfast.

At  times like this, I’ll occasionally have the forethought to prepare a breakfast casserole the night before. It’s so  great to wake up, grab my coffee and sit down to relax, knowing that breakfast is already taken care of. But most of the time I’m so focused on food for the night before that any meal past that slips my mind. And it’s those times that I like to have an easy recipe like this one at the ready.

This gravy is not your old-fashioned-the-way-your-grandmother-cooked-it kind. This is a fast, easy yet still delicious version that’s more for when you want need a hearty breakfast but don’t want to spend the entire morning in the kitchen. For biscuits, I suggest using your own favorite biscuit recipe, try this one or just buy some ready-made buttermilk biscuits that you can just toss in the oven. But do make sure you use a good quality biscuit – the bread is always the most important part of the sandwich, just as the gravy is only as good as the biscuit you use.

To make this dish lactose-free, simply swap out the milk for some that’s lactose-free! And for more great recipes that are lactose-free, check out one of my favorite websites, Moovision! They have many recipes, videos and great information on cooking with lactose-free milk.

Have a great week!

    You know, sausage gravy had never appealed to me (I'm told it's a Southern thing), until I saw your recipe. Looks good, and fast!

    I never have it together enough to cook in the mornings, but maybe some weekend I will try my hand at this. I do love sausage gravy.

    As far as store bought biscuits, what would you recommend? I don't have time to make my own in the morning, but I want them hot.

    This is delicious! This makes a great breakfast
    with bread and biscuit. It is the best that I’ve ever made! I also heated the
    milk first before adding it in.

    This is certainly a delightful breakfast treat. I've been reading your breakfast recipes and it is indeed imperative that we make the preparations in the evenings so we can enjoy a simple but sumptuous breakfast like this one here.

    Wow, what a difference a bit of this gravy makes… We had it this morning for breakfast and the sausages were so much tastier, the bread was so much tastier… yummy, can't wait to prepare it again next Sunday!
