This was amazingly good! I only had regular pork sausage patties (I can't wait to try it with the Italian sausge!), but I followed the directions exactly and it was absolutely excellent. Everyone (ages 12 to 56) who had one raved about it! I will definately make these again and again! Thanks for the great, easy recipe!
