Bisquick Sausage Casserole Recipes

Casseroles are a favorite of many. They are ideal for taking to a potluck or a family dinner. We can also refer a potluck to other names such as faith supper, dish party, or Jacob’s supper. It simply means a gathering where everyone brings a different dish to share. Sausage is one of those meats that have such great flavor, and I enjoy incorporating them into casserole dishes.

History of the Casserole

  • Casseroles are known as a one-dish-meal
  • Casseroles became popular in the 1950s
  • They are usually baked in an oven
  • Casseroles usually consist of meat, vegetables, and a starch
  • In the UK, they typically make casseroles using gravy
  • Casseroles have different names according to the origin. In Greece, they are known as moussaka, whereas in France, they are called cassoulet
Sausage Casserole Pie

Sausage Casserole Pie

Casseroles rarely have a crust, but I thought it would make a nice change to a standard casserole dish. You can add different seasonings to this dish according to taste, but I find it tastes amazing as is.The different types of cheese along with the heavy cream lend a rich taste to this dish, making it very difficult to eat just one piece.

Ingredients
  

Sausage Filling

  • 1 pound ground sausage
  • 3 eggs (beaten)
  • 3 tbsp Bisquick
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup cottage cheese
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder

Pie Crust

  • 3 cups Bisquick
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • ¾ cup cold water
  • 1 egg (beaten to brush the top of the crust)

Instructions
 

Pie Crust

  • Grease a pie pan.
  • Blend three cups of Bisquick and one-half teaspoon of salt in a medium-size mixing bowl. Cut In one cup of shortening with a pastry blender or two knives until crumbly.
  • Mix the cold water into the mixture slowly, until it forms a dough-like consistency. If you find that it’s too dry, add a little more water.
  • Form the dough into a ball and divide it into two pieces.
  • Gently roll each piece on a lightly floured surface and place one into a prepared pie pan. The other piece will cover the top of the filling.

Sausage Filling

  • Preheat the oven to three hundred and fifty degrees. Cook the ground sausage over medium heat and drain the oil.
  • In a mixing bowl combine three beaten eggs, three tablespoons of Bisquick, one cup of grated mozzarella, and one cup of grated cheddar cheese.
  • Stir in one cup of cottage cheese, one-half cup of heavy cream, one-half teaspoon of black pepper, and the garlic powder. Mix all ingredients until well combined and stir in the ground sausage.
  • Pour the sausage mixture evenly into the prepared pie shell and cover with the top piece. Crimp the edges together and brush the top with the beaten egg. Poke a few holes into the top for venting, using a fork, and bake for thirty minutes.
  • Cover the pie with foil and bake for an additional thirty minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for approximately fifteen minutes. Enjoy!
