1970's Bisquick Pigs in a Blanket Casserole
Kim McCutchen
I have been looking everywhere for a recipe my mom made in the 70's. It was a Pigs in a Blanket Casserole. It was baked in a 13x9 casserole the mixture when baked seemed as much silky egg texture as bread mixture and it was slightly sweet. Maybe had beer in it. The sausage links all stuck one end out somehow. Nothing I have ever found has ever had the texture of this 70's recipe. I hope you can help.
Given the date and description, I suspect it was a mom's variation on breakfast impossible pie, which has just that eggy texture. For a 9X13, you would do 1 1/2, and I think the bobbing sausage ends were the result of cutting the sausages in half, allowing them to float a bit. Here is a typical recipe:

Impossible Sausage Pie
Makes its own crust.

1/2 pound Brown 'N Serve sausage, sliced
1/2 cup onion, finely chopped (may be omitted)
2 cups milk
1 cup Bisquick
4 eggs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Grease 10-inch pie or quiche pan.
Sprinkle sausage and onion in the pan.
'Beat remaining ingredients until smooth (50 times with hand beater), pour over sausages.
Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until a knife inserted into center comes out clean.
Cool 5 minutes before cutting. Serves 6.
