There are a lot of hungry children hanging out around our house during Christmas Break and this is a crowd pleaser for all of your peeps and their spend the night company. This recipe is a novel approach to the ordinary sausage biscuit and the cheddar gravy will give you a Krystal Burger flashback. I found this recipe in Cuisine at Home (my favorite magazine subscription and one that I highly recommend if you like to cook) and I tweaked it a little bit for ease. The loaf can me made ahead and refrigerated.
Sausage and Biscuit Breakfast Loaf
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and coat a 9×5″ loaf pan with cooking spray. Slice the sausage into 15 patties and cook according to instructions or if you choose the pre-cooked, prepare as the package directs and slice in a cross-section manner to achieve 16 thin patties.
Remove the biscuits from can and slice cross-sectioned to achieve 16 biscuit dough rounds. Place the rounds on a lightly floured surface, 4 across and 4 down (see photograph above). Sprinkle dough with green onions and, using your fingers and a rolling pin, pinch the biscuits together and roll into a thin square. Mine is square-ish. Cut the dough into 16 squares and stack dough and sausage patties together, starting and ending with the dough, and place into the greased loaf pan. At this point you could cover and place in the fridge overnight or go ahead and cook it in the oven for 25-30 minutes.
Cheddar Cheese Gravy
8 slices of Wright Brand bacon cooked and diced
1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups of milk
6 ounces of sharp Cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard
2 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
black pepper to taste
Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp and transfer to a brown paper sack or paper towel lined plate. Reserve 1/4 cup of the bacon drippings and whisk in 1/4 cup of flour, cooking over medium heat for two minutes. Gradually add the milk, whisking often until the gravy begins to thicken. Stir in cheese, mustard and Worcestershire sauce to a smooth consistency and season with pepper.
Remove cooked loaf from the pan and place on a serving platter. Top with Cheddar cheese gravy, bacon and scallions.
