Serving and Storage Tips:

Serving Tips:

  1. Serve Warm: Biscuits and Gravy Casserole is best served warm, straight from the oven. Let it cool for a few minutes to set before slicing and serving.
  2. Accompaniments: Pair the casserole with a fresh fruit salad or a side of hash browns for a complete breakfast feast.
  3. Portion Control: Use a sharp knife to cut the casserole into even portions. A serving size of about 2-inch squares works well for most appetites.
  4. Toppings: Consider topping each serving with a dollop of sour cream, a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley, or a dash of hot sauce for added flavor.

Storage Tips:

  1. Refrigeration: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The casserole will keep for up to 3 days.
  2. Reheating: To reheat, place individual servings in the microwave for about 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Alternatively, reheat in the oven at 350°F for about 15-20 minutes, or until warmed through.
  3. Freezing: You can freeze the baked casserole for up to 2 months. Allow it to cool completely, then wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil before freezing.
  4. Thawing: When ready to eat, thaw the frozen casserole in the refrigerator overnight. Reheat in the oven at 350°F until heated through, which may take about 30-40 minutes.
  5. Make-Ahead Option: Assemble the casserole the night before, cover it with plastic wrap, and refrigerate. In the morning, bake it according to the instructions. This makes it an excellent option for busy mornings or when hosting guests.
