Holiday times mean big food times, and big food times mean WE START WITH BRUNCH.

My love for this biscuits and gravy egg bake is borderline over-the-top. There are zero things not to love about a casserole-style dish of fluffy eggs and cheddar baked up with little bites of tender flaky biscuit pieces poking out the top, and buried under a blanket of creamy, savory, mildly spicy green chile sausage gravy.

It is THE brunch dish of 2020 for me because:

  • It's so easy.
  • It's a crowd favorite.
  • Each piece gets smothered in green chile gravy.
  • Repeat: green chile gravy.
  • And how about just a little more gravy.
  • It's really, really delicious.

I like to pick up all the ingredients for this at ALDI: Simply Nature Organic Whole Milk, Simply Nature Organic Cage Free Eggs, Bake House Creations Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits, Appleton Farms Premium Pork Sausage, Pueblo Lindo Chopped Green Chiles and really good Happy Farms Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese. Super short ingredient list.

ALDI ingredients for biscuits and gravy egg bake.

If I manage to venture out to the store, even though I have a short list, what are the chances I find a few other yummy ALDI holiday treats waiting for me on the shelves? 100%.

But also, what about if you're not wanting to / able to leave the house right now? VERY RELATABLE. You can shop ALDI via Instacart which is how I do 90% of my real-life ALDI shopping. Not sure about you, but I almost always have to work a little harder to make my cart total get past $35 for free delivery because ALDI is so affordable! Oh darn, looks like I need to throw in a few extra boxes of our favorite wheat crackers, a couple of packages of amazing marinated olives, and at least three bricks of goat cheese with blueberries. Shoot. Bummer. ...How soon can it get here?

Okay, biscuits and gravy egg bake.

Here's what happens: we just layer all the good things. Whisked eggs, biscuits, cheddar cheese, green chile sausage gravy...

And bake.

And cover with more sausage gravy.

We might just need to call it like it is: the holidays are probably a little weird for most of us right now. A brunch with close family and friends can make it seem just a little more normal. Even if that brunch is for a smaller group than we'd wish for.

Food is my ultimate favorite way to bring little joys into the everyday, and in this season, HOLY SMOKES we need those little joys! We need that biscuits and gravy egg bake. We need extra sausage gravy. Whisk the eggs, grate the cheese, pop the biscuit pieces in there, and let's eat.

Easy biscuits and gravy egg bake brunch for the win.

My friend Sarah (of Sarah's White Chicken Chili fame) told me about this recipe on Tasty a few years ago and I just finally got around to trying it! I changed up the layers a bit from their version, and I knew I had to make it a green chile gravy when I saw a local restaurant with biscuits and green chile gravy item on their takeout brunch menu, which is how we ended up at this delicious biscuits and green chile gravy egg bake point in our lives!

Common Questions About Biscuits and Gravy Egg Bake

Can this recipe be prepped in advance?

It sure can! The egg bake can be prepped completely in advance and stored in the refrigerator. We'd recommend bringing it to room temperature for 30 minutes before baking.

Can I make this vegetarian?

Yes! We'd suggest replacing the pork sausage with mushrooms. Or you can use a vegetarian egg bake situation like this Springy Vegetable Quiche.

How do I store leftovers?

You can store leftovers of the egg bake covered in the fridge for 3-4 days.

Biscuits and Gravy Egg Bake! YES! A casserole-style dish of fluffy eggs and cheddar baked up with little bites of tender flaky biscuit pieces, and buried under a blanket of creamy green chile sausage gravy.



Green Chile Sausage Gravy

  • 1 lb. Appleton Farms Premium Pork Sausage
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups Simply Nature Organic Whole Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can Pueblo Lindo Chopped Green Chiles

Egg Bake

  • 8 Simply Nature Organic Cage Free Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Simply Nature Organic Whole Milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12-ounce tube of Bake House Creations Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits (about 6-8 biscuits), cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup Happy Farms Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese


  1. Cook the Sausage: Brown the sausage in a large cast iron skillet. Remove from pan. Drain off excess grease.
  2. Make the Gravy: Melt butter in the same cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour; stir until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Whisk in the milk, about 1/2 cup at a time, until a smooth gravy comes together. Add salt, diced green chiles, and sausage back to the gravy. Stir to combine. 
  3. Whisk the Eggs: In a separate bowl, whisk eggs with milk and salt. 
  4. Assemble the Egg Bake: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place half of the biscuits over the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan. Pour eggs over top. Sprinkle with cheese and dollop with some of the gravy (but save some gravy for later). Arrange with remaining biscuits. Bake for 35 minutes, until eggs are set. 
  5. Eat Up: Serve slices warm from the oven, with a scoop of that green chile sausage gravy over the top (thin it out with a little more milk so it's semi-pourable, since it usually thickens as it cools). Brunch dreams realized.

    The sausage gravy recipes i use call for the flour to be incorporated into the sausage before slowly adding the milk.
    Is there a particular reason you wait until the gravy is thickened to add the sausage and green chili?
    PS, I can hardly believe I’ve never thought of adding green chilis to my gravy! Thanks for the tip!

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      No particular reason! I think we like the idea of starting out with a nice base of gravy, and then adding in the good stuff (eg, sausage and green chiles).

  2. Skillful Cook Logo

    Not me, doing a rush instacart order so I can make this for dinner tonight! Looks amazing, can’t wait to taste it!!

  3. Skillful Cook Logo

    This is the perfect answer to biscuits and gravy made easy! I love that it’s a “bake” with the eggs. Can’t wait to try this!

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      This looks so delicious! I made some biscuits a couple weeks ago and froze a bunch – would pre-baked biscuits work in this, do you think? Thanks for sharing all of the wonderful recipes!

      1. Skillful Cook Logo

        Thanks Dana! It may work, but pre-baked biscuits might get a little dried out if baking for another 35 minutes.

  4. Skillful Cook Logo

    Just made this last night. Picked up biscuits and turkey sausage at Target drive up…absolutely hits the spot! Makes plenty for lunch for the week too!

  5. Skillful Cook Logo

    Is there any reason why you couldn’t just layer the biscuits by cutting in half rather than cubing?

  6. Skillful Cook Logo

    Do the biscuits that are submerged in the eggs cook completely, or do they tend to be soggy?

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      Hi Wendy! The biscuits will cook completely. They won’t be soggy. We hope you enjoy the recipe!

  7. Skillful Cook Logo

    This recipe is insane! And I mean that in the best possible way. Not in a million years would I have come up with this idea on my own, but wow does it look amazing!

  8. Skillful Cook Logo

    Insane delish. Simple with lots of flavor. I added a little adobo and cayenne pepper. This is really really a great recipe. LUV

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      I noticed the biscuits in the picture (and what they sell at Aldi) are 16oz, not 12. Is it actually a 16 oz tube that you use in the recipe or do you not use all the biscuits?

  9. Skillful Cook Logo

    looks amazing, I want to make this for my family for Christmas morning — can you sub mushrooms to make the gravy vegetarian? thank you!

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      We haven’t tried this recipe with mushrooms, but we think it will work! If you give it a try, we’d love to hear back!

  10. Skillful Cook Logo

    I made these this morning for Sunday breakfast. Absolutely perfect with plenty of left overs to start off the week! Love the chilies in the gravy. We loved the gravy so much that next time I may double the gravy!

  11. Skillful Cook Logo

    What a fantastic recipe! Love the chilis in the gravy. Can’t wait for COVID-19 to be over so I can make this for my friends and neighbors.

  12. Skillful Cook Logo

    This looks so delicious! I made some biscuits a few weeks ago and froze leftovers – do you think that could work in this recipe or does it need to be uncooked biscuits? Thanks so much for all the wonderful recipes!

  13. Skillful Cook Logo

    We made this but it came out soupy – I think I may have put too much gravy in the dish?! How much do you mean by dollop with “some”? 1/4 of the gravy? Less than half? We will try again!

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      Sorry to hear that it came out soupy! We’d estimate that we use 1/2 to 3/4 cup of gravy for the dollops.

  14. Skillful Cook Logo

    This was the first recipe I’ve tried that I didn’t like… And it’s all because of the processed biscuits. I generally make everything I can from scratch but decided to give this a try. A good reminder that I’ll never buy biscuits like this again. It surprised me that they were used actually, as generally all your recipes are from scratch!

  15. Skillful Cook Logo

    This was SO GOOD! I have made biscuit and gravy for years and never thought to put green chiles in the gravy. I also put some in the egg mixture. We have fabulous green chilies here in Colorado that made this so good. Thanks!

  16. Skillful Cook Logo

    So delicious! I loved the gravy with the green chiles. I added a little cayenne for a little extra heat as well. I’ll definitely make this again.

  17. Skillful Cook Logo

    Easy and tasty! Great for kids, not too fancy so perfect to pop in the oven while opening gifts Christmas morning. It was still soupy in the middle after 35 mins, so I extended the cooking time. Probably by 20 mins? But may be due to the pan I used (smaller). I think next time I make it I will use pimentos in the gravy in place of green chilies.

    1. Skillful Cook Logo

      I completely agree with the opinion expressed. The dish mentioned seems to be a convenient and delicious option, particularly suitable for kids. The idea of preparing it in the oven while enjoying Christmas morning and opening gifts is both practical and enjoyable. It’s understandable that the cooking time may vary depending on the size of the pan used, and the decision to extend the cooking time by approximately 20 minutes was a wise choice to ensure the dish was properly cooked. The suggestion to use pimentos in the gravy instead of green chilies for the next preparation sounds intriguing and could add a unique twist to the flavor profile. Overall, this feedback highlights the flexibility of the recipe and the personal adjustments that can be made to tailor it to individual preferences.

  18. Skillful Cook Logo

    This was fast and excellent for Christmas morning! I halved it and made it exactly as recipe says. Delicious! Thank you! I used organic Immaculate Baking CO biscuits and those were perfect for it.

  19. Skillful Cook Logo

    I love Aldi too! One question, do you think it would work with ham instead of sausage?

  20. Skillful Cook Logo

    We made this for Christmas morning and it did not disappoint! The green chili sausage gravy was so delicious and I could eat that on just about anything.

    So yummy! It was a hit with everyone at my house. It will be added into our must-repeat Sunday brunch recipe list.
