Ingredients

Add 4 cups of flour, 2 tablespoons of baking powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt to a bowl and mix until combined. Add 1 cup of vegetable shortening or solid coconut oil to the mix and use a fork or pastry cutter to work it into the dry ingredients. Simply swap any of the ingredients out for gluten-free alternatives to fit this recipe to suit any dietary needs.

Eggs:

Any egg or egg-like product that you would typically use in your baking will work in this recipe. Whether that's chicken eggs, or an alternative such as flax eggs, chia eggs, applesauce,  mashed bananas, silken tofu, or even yogurt.

Milk:

You can use any dairy or plant-based milk product you like in this Bisquick sausage casserole recipe. Cashew, almond, soy, coconut, rice, hemp, flax seed, and goat's milk will all provide the creamy base needed.

Seasoning:

While this recipe keeps it pretty simple, only using garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper, you can experiment by adding a selection of seasonings to it. To give your Bisquick sausage casserole a bit of a kick, add paprika or cayenne, while thyme, rosemary, cumin, sage, and coriander will add interest to the dish.

Cheese:

Cheese can be a great addition to your casserole. Cheddar, cream cheese, mozzarella, or a blend of cheeses can be used to create a rich and gooey texture. Alternatively, you can also use dairy-free cream cheese, nutritional yeast, vegan cheese, cashew cheese, coconut milk/cream, or tofu ricotta if you are looking to make a vegan or dairy-free version of this Bisquick sausage casserole recipe.

Sausage:

Opt for high-quality sausages with your preferred flavor profile, such as mild or spicy. You can use pork, turkey, or even chicken sausage, depending on your dietary preferences.
