More About This Recipe
Perfect for lazy Sunday mornings, this savory dish is great to share.
When it comes to comfort food, sausage and sravy is high on the list of irresistible eats. There’s something about covering a piping hot, mile-high, flaky buttery biscuit with peppery, creamy gravy and salty bits of sausage.
Just talking about it has me hungry.
So, what could be better than sausage and gravy? How about a party-perfect brunch ring that feeds a crowd with all of these classic comforting flavors?
A clever twist on the traditional, this incredible brunch ring is about to become a new fave. Here’s how to get one in your kitchen. Saturday morning is begging, you know.
Ingredient lineup for this recipe focuses on quick, tasty shortcuts. Ready-to-go crescents create a buttery, flaky crust fast. And creamy soup makes for quick gravy. No need to muss and fuss with cornstarch or flour.
You’ll whip up the sausage and gravy, then open a can of crescent rolls. I recommend keeping your crescents in the fridge until you’re totally ready to assemble the ring. Chilled dough is so much easier to work with, it holds it shape and keeps the final ring from “melting” as it’s assembled and even as it bakes.
With the large triangle ends of the rings arranged around a pizza stone, spoon the sausage mixture around the section that overlaps. Rather than spreading the mixture out, aim to spoon it high on top of itself—which will yield one beautiful-looking brunch ring shape.
Now, I’ve made a bunch of brunch rings, and this prep tip makes a big difference. Don’t just fold the crescents over themselves. Fold the tip of each toward the center by about 1 inch. THEN, fold over the filling. This reinforces the dough, and gives the center of your ring a nice, tidy, tucked look.
Fold each crescent into the center, pressing the dough against the bottom of each triangle, securing the ring closed around the sausage mixture.
When the ring is golden brown and ready to come out of the oven, grab a long metal spatula and ever-so-gently slide the outer part of the ring toward the center. This will reshape your ring so each piece has a nice, rounded look (instead of a flat, melty look, which can sometimes happen as the ring bakes.)
Allow to cool slightly, then serve with extra gravy for dipping! Perfect for breakfast, brunch or even dinner, this quick and simple Sausage and Gravy Brunch ring is about as delicious as comfort food gets!
