This dish is so delicious we eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s hearty and great for week-ends when you just want to relax, have guests, or you just want to enjoy each other and reheat for lunch. If you have kids, they love it too. It’s a great recipe to use for a brunch or office breakfast. The best thing about the dish is it’s easy to make. Here’s what you need:
- 1 pound ground pork or turkey sausage ( I used hot Italian for this one)
- 5 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 cups milk
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- Cooking spray
- 8 refrigerated jumbo biscuits
- 1/2 cup chopped green onions
- 3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350°. Cook sausage in a large skillet over medium-high heat 8 minutes or until crumbly and no longer pink; remove from skillet, and drain. Melt butter in skillet; whisk in flour. Whisk constantly 1 minute. Gradually whisk in milk, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil, whisking constantly; cook 2 minutes. Stir in sausage. Grease an 11- x 7-inch baking dish with cooking spray; place dish on a baking sheet. Split biscuits in half lengthwise; place 8 halves in baking dish. Top with half of sausage mixture and 1/4 cup chopped green onions. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with 3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese. Bake 40 minutes or until golden.
Serve with scrambled eggs and fresh fruit. Yummy!
