Sausage Cheese Bake

Sausage Cheese Bake a delicious blend of sausage, gravy and cheese baked on top of a flaky puff pastry. It’s the way to your honey’s heart!

Why This Recipe is Special

Brunch is a fun way to start the weekend. Just for kicks and giggles, I like to create recipes that will get my hubby out of bed. Over the years, I’ve learned that making Sausage & Cheese Bake is the fastest and easiest method.

Sausage & Cheese Bake ranks high on the list with my other puff pastry recipes like Blackberry Cheese Danish and Strawberry Chocolate Tart. The biggest difference is that it’s savory instead of sweet. Which brings me to gravy.

Ah, gravy. On biscuits…on toast…on just about anything. It’s a southern way of life. I’ve been known to make a mean sausage gravy. And, one of the best parts of this dish is it starts with that southern delicacy.

How to Make It

Start by browning a pound of your favorite pork sausage in a cast iron skillet. (ad) I like to choose a mild sausage, then add my favorite spices like cracked pepper, garlic, and a little sage.

Once the sausage is browned, add flour to the skillet, and cook for one minute over medium low heat. Next, add one cup of milk and stir until creamy. This gravy recipe is going to be thicker and not have as much volume as biscuit gravy because it’s going on top of puff pastry.

Roll Out the Puff Pastry

Speaking of puff pastry, now’s the time to roll it out on your handy, dandy sheet pan. (ad) I use puff pastry which comes with its own parchment paper, but if yours doesn’t, be sure to roll out the paper first.

When the puff pastry is ready, roll up the edges all the way around, and prick the pastry with a fork. Spoon on the sausage and gravy mixture. Now, it’s time for the best thing ever…CHEESE! Sprinkle cheddar, then a blend of your favorite cheeses on top of the sausage and you’re ready to bake it up!

Pop the whole thing into a 425 degree oven for 20 minutes and be amazed at what comes out when the timer goes off! Let the pastry rest for 5 minutes, then cut it into yummy slices.

Why You’ll Love Sausage Cheese Bake

Sausage Cheese Bake tastes like a giant biscuit smothered in sausage and cheese gravy. It’s the perfect brunch recipe for weekends, bridal showers, or holiday celebrations.

It’s also a great meal for families on the go! Just pop it in the oven, bake and cool…then watch it disappear.

  2. Can this recipe be made with crescent rolls if puff pastry isn’t available?

    • Hi Barbara. Yes, I think crescent rolls would work great as long as you bought the crescent roll sheets, or rolled the individual rolls together to seal the seams. Let me know if you make it with crescent rolls and how it turns out!
