Oh, Bubbles, Dahling...never thought I would sing the praises of turkey sausage, but this one hit the spot! Nice recipe and I made it again last night with regular summer sausage, some left-over venison sausage, red beans instead of kidneys, a little chile powder and red pepper flakes and snuck in a few left over Navy beans, a couple of black beans and it was a hit - the old kitchen sink, clear the fridge version and no one even asked! They just ate without speaking for fear someone else would get the dibs on seconds! That is a statement in and of itself in this household! Thanks, Babs...a great one that will again be on our table before long as the fall creeps in...
