Top Review by Kelly M.

Not a bad recipe and pretty easy to make. Sausage and pumpkin does make a good combo, but I didnt like the sweet taste from the brown sugar, although it was very subtle. I think a more spicy addition would have been better, like a bit of cayenne (although I really like spicy food), and leave out the brown sugar. This is one of those recipes that I would cut out of a magazine, make once, and think it was pretty good but would probably not go back to often enough to keep.
