Biscuits & Gravy Breakfast Casserole

I own a lot of kitchen utensils and gadgets.

I’ve got a KitchenAid mixer. A food processor. A sushi bazooka. A griddle. An immersion blender, hand mixer, pizelle maker, egg roll maker, and breakfast sandwich maker.

But you know one thing that I don’t have? A whisk.

Yep. Something as simplistic and necessary as a whisk and yet I don’t have one. I’ve been using the whisk attachment to my hand mixer the last few times I’ve needed a whisk.

How does this happen? The one whisk that I did used to own broke about a year ago. It was a wire whisk with a kind of rubber covering over the wire, and the dishwasher just mangled it all up. I threw it away and have been scraping by ever since.

Making gravy without a true whisk is kind of an embarassing sight. The little hand mixer one I used yesterday morning got the job done, but not without sausge clumps getting inside. I also had to use a whole lot of hand power to get that thing cranking! Like I said, embarassing. My husband even texted my parents asking them to please get me a whisk. Oops.

Rob & I had to have our Christmas yesterday since we have a busy next few weeks. I wasn’t mad about having Christmas a week early! Nope. Rob did incredible for me. He got me a Nintendo Switch (score!) and I promptly destroyed him in Super Smash Brothers (the key here: use Kirby. Always.) and we played the new Super Mario Odyssey game and were in awe at it. It could be the best Mario game ever—but I still love Super Mario 64.

He also got me this highlightet I’ve been dreaming of (ABH Amrezy 2.0), a couple of bomb cook books (Snoop Dogg!), a Louise hat, and much more. We had a few gifts to open from his parents and mine, and they were all lovely, too.

For breakfast this year I went with the casserole that is Rob’s favorite: Biscuits and gravy. I had made this once before a few years ago and he fell in love. I usually make my family’s sausage, egg and bread casserole, but I decided to go a new route this year. It didn’t disappoint.

This is all the best things about biscuits and gravy combined and magnified. You could easily eat a whole pan of this stuff. It’s that good. I highly recommend it for your Christmas morning festivities. It’s a little more work than a regular dump-and-go breakfast casserole, but it’s well worth it in the end. Everyone will be coming back for seconds.

Enjoy!
