5 stars from the family. We live in China and nothing comes close to any type of sausage from the states. Thanks for helping the expats out!
These were very tasty and tender. I especially enjoyed the sweetness of the maple syrup and the spiciness of the red pepper flakes. I thought the sage was a little too overpowering. I think next time I am going to halve the sage (personal preference). Made for Top Favorites of 2009 Tag Game.
Made as directed. I suggest these are better than Burger King! My husband suggests increasing the amount of sage. Thanks, Messiejessie625! Made for My Three Chefs event.
