What do I need for Biscuit and Gravy Casserole?
Sausage - I like to use Jimmy Dean’s Turkey Sausage crumbles for biscuits and gravy. They are already cooked and just need a little time on the stove to heat through. You can also freeze them and take them out whenever you need them. Any type of sausage can be used for this casserole. Look for the lowest point option in your store.
Milk and Flour - When you add the flour on top of the sausage, it will help thicken the gravy, which is made of milk, flour, and sausage.
Biscuits The original recipe for Bubble Up Pizza uses canned biscuits as a shortcut and that is why I decided to use these for this casserole. Look for Grands Junior Flaky Biscuits 12 oz can. Each biscuit is 100 calories each. If you can’t find them, use your scanner on the WW app to find something similar.
Homemade Biscuits would help to really lower the points of this casserole. You can use the 2 ingredient dough recipe for that which is equal parts self-rising flour and Nonfat Greek Yogurt. The points would be lowered to 6 for blue and purple. 7 for Green.
How to make Bubble up Biscuits and Gravy Casserole
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium nonstick skillet, melt the butter.
Add the already cooked sausage to the pan and stir until the sausage is warmed up.
Sprinkle in the flour all over the sausage and whisk for 1 to 2 minutes or until the flour has completely dissolved. Next, add the 2 cups of milk and bring to a simmer and add the spices.
The sauce will be ready when you can run your finger along the back of the spoon and it leaves a clear lining.
Grease a 9"-x-13" or round pie plate baking dish with cooking spray. Cut biscuits into quarters.
Pour the sausage gravy mixture into the casserole dish and spread the quartered biscuits all over the top.
Bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can I make this casserole ahead of time?
To make this dish ahead of time, when it comes time to add the ingredients to the casserole dish, pour in the sausage gravy and let it cool. Top with the biscuits. Cover it with saran wrap or foil and set it in the fridge overnight. When ready to bake the next morning, take it out bake it in the oven.
Can you freeze biscuits and gravy?
Gravy made with flour can be frozen up to 4 months in a freezer bag. If I were to freeze this casserole, I would freeze the gravy mixture in a freezer bag. Just keep a can of biscuits in the fridge whenever you are ready to make it.
