Giddy Up and Go Breakfast Cobbler was named by my sons when they were younger and we loved it so much it stuck. Sausage, biscuits, eggs and cheese are a classic combination that shine in this delicious make-ahead casserole.
Giddy Up and Go Breakfast Cobbler
It's probably apparent by the title that my little cowboys helped name this breakfast cobbler casserole. In it, I use a spicy sausage that will most definitely put a spring in your step to start your day or make a tasty addition to your "breakfast for dinner" menu. If you prefer a more gentle awakening, you can, of course, substitute the same amount with a milder breakfast sausage. I've made this dish using all eggs, and also a mixture of whole eggs and egg substitute, with equally delicious results. All the things you love for breakfast, served in a casserole.
Tips for Success and Variations
This super simple breakfast cobbler can be adapted in many ways.
- You can make your own biscuits for this dish using my Southern Buttermilk Biscuits recipe if you prefer. That said, this dish was designed to keep things simple so, there's no need to fuss too much.
- This recipe can also be adapted using canned biscuits. Each adaptation will change the dish a bit but, it will still work.
- You may use mild or spicy sausage simply adapt to your preference.
- You may use half whole eggs and half egg beaters or similar egg white product.
- You can use any flavor of cheese you like, or have on hand, in the same amount.
- This dish can be assembled and chilled overnight. When doing so allow to sit on the counter for 15 minutes prior to baking.
