LOVED IT! But instead of smoked sausage, I used hot breakfast sausage and three links of cheesy brats- It was a huge hit! My old man said it's the best thing I've ever made (and I make a lot of new things!!) I also used cajun seasoning since I didn't have creole seasoning- gave it an awesome kick! A new favorite!
I am not a big fan of green peppers so I substituted okra. I have made this recipe twice and it's reeaall good!
Very good! I made this for our Mardi Gras celebration at work and got rave reviews! Like the previous rating I substituted okra for the bell pepper, turned out beautifully!
