Step 1: Prepare Ingredients
To start off you should gather all of your ingredients and other supplies you will need to make this dish. After you have gathered your ingredients you should go ahead and measure them out. Go ahead and grease your casserole dish with any type of cooking grease. Make sure it is well coated so the Bisquick doesn't stick to the bottom. Also preheat your oven at 375 degrees.
Tip, If you measure your ingredients before you start cooking that will save you a lot of time in the long run.
Step 2: Create Your Batter
To create your batter you need to combine your Bisquick, milk and 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise into a small bowl. Then combine those ingredients with a spatula making sure everything is combined. You will know it is all mixed when there is no more Bisquick powder and everything is smooth. It should be a dough like consistency and it shouldn't stick to your hands.
Step 3: Frying Time
Next you will need to take care of your sausage and chopped onions. First, set your stove top to medium heat and set your pan over the burner. Next, put your sausage and onions into the pan together and let that cook for 15 minutes. You know that everything is cooked when the sausage isn't pink and the onions turn translucent. When done drain on paper towel to get rid of all of the oil.
Step 4: Top Layer
Take your egg, remaining 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, cheddar cheese, and green chilies and put them in a bowl. Mix until well incorporated. You know it is all mixed together when the egg is well beaten. Set this mixture aside until assembly.
Step 5: Assembly and Cooking
First, spread all of your Bisquick mixture in the bottom of the greased pan. Next, layer all of your drained sausage and onions over the Bisquick mixture, making sure it is spread out evenly. Lastly, spread your egg and cheese mixture over your layer of sausage and onions, evenly. After it is all assembled put the dish in your preheated oven and cook for 25 minutes.
Step 6: Enjoy!
After you remove your zesty sausage squares from the oven let them set for about 10 minutes, then slice them into squares. If you want to elevate the experience, go ahead and eat them with one of your favorite condiments or sauces. Enjoy!
