5-Layer Breakfast Bake

5-Layer Breakfast Bake: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

This breakfast combines all of my husbands favorite breakfast foods, except for bacon. I was really hoping he would love this breakfast and he did. He even went back for more and kept saying how really good it was. That is a true sign that he really liked it. Usually I have to ask for his opinion on a dish, but he offered it up right away without me even asking. 

5-Layer Breakfast Bake



  • 8 eggs
  • black pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • Sausage Gravy

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 pound breakfast sausage
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 4 cups whole milk, room temperature
  • black pepper, to taste
  • Hash Browns

  • 3 cups frozen shredded hash browns, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • Biscuit Dough

  • 2 cups all purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk, cold
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 400ยบ F.


  1. In a large bowl whisk the eggs and season with black pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon unsalted butter in a non stick skillet over medium heat. Pour in the eggs. As the eggs begin to set gently pull the eggs across the pan, to form large soft curds. Continue cooking and pulling, lifting and folding the eggs until thickened and no liquid eggs remain.

    Sausage Gravy

  1. Heat the butter in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add the sausage and use a spoon to break it up. Cooke until the sausage is completely cooked. Add in the flour and stir constantly for 1 minute. Slowly pour in the milk, stirring constantly. Continue to cook and stir until the mixture has thickened, about 8 minutes. Season with black pepper.

    Hash Browns

  1. Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Spread the hash brown evenly on the bottom of the pan and season with black pepper. Sprinkle shredded cheese on in an even layer and then top with the scrambled eggs. Pour the gravy over top.

    Biscuit Dough

  1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  2. Pour the 1/2 cup melted butter into the cold buttermilk and stir until the butter hardens and forms lumps. Pour this mixture into the flour mixture and mix until well combined.
  3. Transfer the dough to floured piece of saran wrap and dust generously with flour. Use a floured rolling pin and roll the dough into a rectangle about 9x13 inches. Transfer the dough to the top of the baking dish and stretch or move the dough to completely cover the filling. Spread the 2 tablespoons of melted butter over top of the biscuit dough.
  4. Bake for 25-20 minutes or until the dough is lightly browned.
