Do you ever wish you lived in another part of the country or the world so you could eat the food that the region was know for on a regular basis?
I often dream about where else I would live based off the food I could eat. There’s so many interesting places in the world and so many different cuisines I enjoy.
One of the most defined cuisines in the United States is probably Southern Cooking. With its comforting, warm flavors it truly defines home cooking when I think about the different dishes they serve up in the South.
One of the most popular dishes is biscuits and gravy, and while this meal has certainly migrated to other parts of the country, there’s no doubt it’s flavors are rooted in the south.
Biscuits and gravy history
The dish actually came into being after the American Revolutionary War in the 1700s when certain foods were in short supply and people needed a substantial meal before working on a plantation, according to Wikipedia.
Today the original recipes have so many variations and have even been become popular dishes at restaurants around the country.
Biscuits and Gravy Casserole
This Biscuits and Gravy Casserole is one of my versions. You don’t need to be a rockstar at baking to make biscuits, you can prep it overnight and bake it the next day and it easily feeds a crowd. You can keep it for about two days and just reheat it in the mircowave or the oven. Just make sure to make extra gravy too.
It’s a savory dish that works for breakfast but is also a delightful add to and brunch celebration and could even pass for lunch and dinner. If you need a beautiful casserole dish, check out this one.

Hi. Just wanted to point out that there are no eggs in the ingredient list, but there are in the instructions. Also Milk is misspelled.
How many eggs??????
YES, a big part of why our family enjoys traveling the world full time is that we get to explore all sorts of new foods! I’ve made biscuits and gravy in over half a dozen different countries on four continents, but never as casserole. What a creative idea!!! http://OurKitchenClassroom.com/
