Yet another recipe from my beloved Cooking Light, and also another I haven't tried yet. The key word there is yet, because I love the idea of this one.

PERFECT for a Fall Brunch ! This was delicious! with just the right amount of sweetness! The only substitution I made using ground turkey sausage because I couldn't find links. I will definitely be making it again !
