Giddy Up And Go Breakfast Cobbler

Giddy Up and Go Breakfast Cobbler is a savory breakfast casserole that features biscuits, eggs, sausage and plenty of cheese. It 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 dish.

Easy Giddy Up and Go Breakfast Cobbler Recipe

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.

  1. Hey Melissa post a smaller Version from your breakfast Cassaroll on Facebook would like to try it.

      1. Your home made biscuits, are they drop biscuits? Or do you have to toll them out? Are the biscuits only on the bottom? Your pictures look like on top also.

      2. Make the biscuits per the recipe, roll and cut into rounds. Then cut into quarters and assemble the cobbler per the directions.

  2. Hello, your recipe sounds delicious. However is there a smaller amount of all ingredients I can use or is this amount ok for Two people. Thanks for your help.

  3. Thanks so much for the quick response Melissa. Just ignore the last question, hit the wrong button. Thanks again and that really helps, makes since now. 🙂

  4. Hi Melissa, This is going to be dumb question, but I’m a little confused about how many eggs to use? Can I just use 12 Large eggs? Please help so I can make this for my family. Have a wonderful day and God Bless you. 🙂

    1. Hi Joann, I was giving you two options. For the filling you can use:
      1) 2 cups of egg whites whisked with 4 whole eggs to add a little richness (i.e. Egg Beaters or similar)
      2) 12 large eggs

  5. Looking forward to trying this -hope I can find frozen buttermilk biscuits here in Canada as I can’t say that I’ve ever seen them. If not, will use Pilsbury refrigerated. Thanks!
