Cheesy Sausage Gravy
I appreciate the make-ahead convenience of this breakfast dish shared by a friend many years ago. I've served this to overnight guests, and they never fail to ask for the recipe. —P.J. Prusia, Raymore, Missouri

I have a picnic/campover every year at my house. Have served this for breakfast the past 3 years. Everybody loves it. Fix it and forget it the night before. Pull biscuits from the freezer and bake them in the a.m.
