Biscuits and gravy get a delicious Greek flavored makeover and it’s all made in one pot! One-Pot Greek Biscuits and Gravy Cobbler is perfect for your next brunch or whenever you need a cozy plate of comfort food!
Happy hump day friends! Can you believe it’s less than three weeks until Christmas? It makes me tired just thinking about everything I need to do before then. One thing I don’t need to think about is one of the dishes I’ll be making Christmas morning and that’s this One-Pot Greek Biscuits and Gravy Cobbler!
I’m so excited to be sharing this recipe with you because it comes from my friend Lauren’s new cookbook, Modern Comfort Cooking. Lauren is not only the mastermind behind this amazing cookbook, but she’s also the local Denver blogger of Climbing Grier Mountain. If you haven’t visited her blog, do it now!
I’ve had a blogger crush on Lauren ever since I moved to Colorado. Everything about her recipes leaves me hungry and wondering what she’ll come up with next. The best way to describe her cooking creations, is that they’re dishes you’re familiar with, but then she adds a modern, updated twist to them. That’s exactly the type of recipes you’ll find in her new cookbook.
Some of the other recipes I’m excited to try out are the Thai Chicken Stir-Fry Skillet Nachos, Shrimp Scampi Zucchini Noodle Bake, Goulash-Stuffed Bell Peppers and for something sweet, Miso-Caramel Apple Slab Pie! My husband about died when he saw the recipe for Bacon and Kimchi Mac and Cheese. Do you see what I mean though by comfort food you’re familiar with, but with an updated twist? It’s genius!
I chose to share the recipe for this One-Pot Greek Biscuits and Gravy Cobbler for several reasons. First, it’s one-pot or in this case cast iron skillet and you know how much I love a good skillet recipe! Second, it’s Greek inspired. If it looks, sounds or smells Greek, I’ll be eating it. Third, it’s an ideal dish to serve for brunch. What’s more brunchy than biscuits and gravy? It’s classic brunch comfort food, but with Lauren’s modern touch added to it.
Add Lauren’s cookbook to your Christmas wish list or if you can’t wait (I don’t blame you), get your copy now. It doesn’t disappoint!
One-Pot Greek Biscuits and Gravy Cobbler
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 pound ground breakfast pork or lamb sausage
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons ground oregano, divided
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 3 cups whole milk
- 1 (16 ounce) can prepared biscuits
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- Grape tomatoes, for garnish
- Kalamata olives, for garnish
- Crumbled feta, for garnish
- Fresh mint, for garnish
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Preheat a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add in the olive oil and the sausage, cooking and breaking it up with a wooden spoon until it's no longer pink, about 5 minutes.
- Once it's cooked, strain the sausage with a slotted spoon, removing any excess fat from the skillet. Add the cooked sausage back into the skillet. Add in the flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons of the oregano, garlic powder, cumin, kosher salt and ground pepper. Stir to combine, making sure everything is well mixed.
- Pour the milk into the skillet and continue to stir for about 5 minutes or until the gravy has thickened.
- Remove the skillet from the heat and top with the biscuits. Mix the melted butter with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of oregano. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the oregano butter and place the skillet into the oven for 10-15 minutes or until the biscuits are cooked through.
- Remove the skillet from the oven and garnish with the grape tomatoes, kalamata olives, feta and mint.
- To save some calories and fat I chose to use ground breakfast chicken sausage and 2% milk. Both worked great.
