I have a good “bloggie” friend of mine named Melissa who has an amazing blog called Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen and she shared this buttermilk biscuit and egg breakfast cobbler on there quite a while ago (She called it a cute name:  “Giddy up and Go Cobbler”).  It had been on my radar for a ridiculous amount of time and I finally took the time to make it.  I knew it was going to be a huge hit, especially with my breakfast-loving husband.  You should really check out her blog – her recipes make me drool!  I like Southern cooking more than any other type of cooking so her recipes really speak to me – she is a fabulous southern cook!

This breakfast cobbler will be made over and over again and it was SO easy to put together and makes for a delicious weekend breakfast with the family.  I only wish I had tried it sooner!  Oh, and I served it with these delicious Blueberry Banana Almond Smoothies.

    Such a great recipe for breakfast… or even lunch!

  11. May 9, 2014 at 3:13 PM #

    Well I am a breakfast loving fool. This is perfect for dinner also—-for those of us who love breakfast food for dinner. And it makes wonderful leftovers to brown bag for lunch, since I am sure it will microwave really well. Delish.

    I love breakfast-style casseroles! They are so great for feeding a crowd!

    Great breakfast casserole! And, yes, very Southern 🙂

    Oh, how I love a good eggy, cheesy casserole. My husband doesn’t like eggy things and he also doesn’t eat breakfast, so whenever someone serves me a quiche or breakfast casserole I’m super happy! 🙂 I’m tempted to make this, but I don’t know if I could eat the whole thing myself haha. I guess I’ll just have to have another brunch party!

    i love this casserole and have been making it for years but I just did it on a wing and a prayer back in those days and hoped it worked. When I brown the sausage I like to add a bit of chopped green onion , bell pepper or mushrooms …. Depends what else you may have at hand that would take it up a notch. Husband loves it and yes we have had it for dinner quite often , that’s why I like adding different items and also different cheeses. Play with it after the first time and make it a really special dish.

    This looks amazing! I’m hoping to make it for Christmas morning. One (dumb!) question: When you put the biscuits in, are they (the biscuits) already cooked? Or are they still dough-y?

    Also, do you know if you can prepare it the night before, leave it in the fridge unbaked, and pop into the oven in the morning? or best to do it all at once?

    so glad to have found this!

    • December 19, 2014 at 8:13 PM #

      Yes it can be made ahead of time! And you put the biscuits in doughy. Not a dumb question!

    The only thing missing would be country gravy!!

    This looks fabulous! Will have to add to my list of brunch items.

    What a great way to start the day!

  30. November 3, 2015 at 5:02 PM #

    I’m so going to prepare this for our next Sunday brunch.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
