Little did I know when I started my Instagram account over 2 years ago that I would become a part of such an amazing weight loss community. I started the account simply to hold myself accountable and now a few years later I hold so much more than that. I have met some amazing people and truly feel like it’s my family away from family.. This brings me to the lovely Star who has recently started the blog theskinnyishdish I knew when Star revealed she was going to start a blog that it would be amazing… The girl can cook!! She’s super cool, like way cooler than I’ll ever be 😉 and just the sweetest… Star is a weight watcher member like many of us and one thing I truly love and admire about her is she just keeps it real..  I am away this weekend so I asked Star if she would share one of her yummy creations on my blog..

So let’s get to why your really here… This delicious Biscuits N’ Gravy bake!! Serves 6 at 7 freestyle smart points each and makes a great breakfast…  I will leave the rest in Star’s hands… thank you mama for sharing your food creativity on my blog 🙂

Hello everyone! I’d like to start off by giving my biggest thanks to Kate for taking me under her Wing, helping me with my adventure into the blogging world, and featuring me on her own fabulous blog! You’re the best, girl!

I’ll start off by introducing myself. My name is star, AKA The Skinnyish dish on Instagram. I am a 20-something, small town living, new-ish mama to my little girl Pepper! The decision to give her this name might’ve had something to do with our love of food. I enjoy my time in the kitchen so much! It’s where I de-stress and it’s the place where I have total control, if even for just a little while. I sing, dance, and make delicious dishes that most people cannot believe are ‘lightened up.’ I also enjoy movie nights with popcorn, taking Pepper for long walks outside on beautiful days, bonfires on summer nights, treating myself, trips to Trader Joe’s, and DIY projects.
I racked my brain for the last few weeks as to whether I would go with one of my popular, tried-and-true recipes, or come up with a Brand-new one to share with you all. As I’ve been sitting here writing this, I still wasn’t decided. but I’m going to go with my almost famous biscuits and gravy bake. It’s packed with a lot of protein to keep you nice and full through the morning, but it’s got all of the deliciousness of regular old biscuits n gravy, that Southern country classic! This recipe also holds a special place in my heart because it was the first one I shared with my Instagram family. The response was so amazing that it gave me the confidence boost I needed to get my own blog up and running!
I really hope you all enjoy this meal. I make it every other week so that we have breakfasts ready to go, and we’re still not even a little sick of it- it reheats perfectly every time! So come on over to Theskinnyishdish and check out some of my other creations. Thank you friends, and thanks so much again Kate!
XO, star

      I am not sure, perhaps you can leave a comment on Star’s blog (Thedailydoseofpepper) link in post.. and ask, it’s her recipe that she shared on my blog 🙂 If it was calculated using water, I doubt milk would add many points, probably would keep the points the same per serving

  1. I made your biscuit and gravy casserole to bring to work with me for my breakfasts. Oh my, it is DELICIOUS! Thank you for sharing. I have made several of your recipes and I haven’t found one yet that I haven’t liked.

      Hi Wendy, I’m not sure if your saying your enjoying the recipes or no way lol.. they are not “my” biscuits so to speak, it’s pillsbury biscuits and yes has sodium but I believe you need to pick and choose your battles, should you eat high sodium meals everyday, no.. but should you stress about it everyday too, no.. It’s all about balance, just like treating yourself to some cookies… your not going to live on cookies everyday but you like enjoying them from time to time.. and as far at the cheese goes, each to their own, I am not forcing anyone to eat low fat cheeses, its a suggestion to keep the points low, if someone want’s to use regular cheese and increase the points they have the option to do that, again it’s picking and choosing your battles, you will never find a recipe on my blog with artificial sweetener as a substitute cause I don’t bake with it, but low fat cheeses, yes I will use it in recipes..

    Was wondering if I could use mccormick homestyle chicken gravy instead? I looked all over for the country style and couldn’t find it?

      Hi I am not sure, this recipe was shared from a fellow blogger, her link is in the post .. I would think it should be ok 🙂

    Sweet Baby Jesus, I need this casserole in my life! Biscuits and Gravy are my guilty pleasure, and now I can have them again and stay OP! Thank you!

  6. Just a quick question! How many ounces are the gravy packets that you are using? When I put it all in my recipe builder for 6 servings it comes out 10 smart points because of the whole 2.6 ounce gravy packet! I’m making it for the first time and I want to make sure I get it right. Thank you!
