This is from a Hutterite Cookbook, centuries old recipe. The Hutterites are one of three surviving Anabaptist groups, The other two are Mennonites and Amish. The Hutterites are different because they believe in communal living and communal ownership. There are many colonies in Montana, South Dakota and Canada. They believe in having modern farming and ranching equipment. I have added the modern non stick spray Pam

This was really wonderful with our Easter breakfast! I made only one change to the ingredients, based on what I had on hand. I subbed buttermilk for the regular milk and it was like eating a buttermilk biscuit with sausage! I did cut my sausages into smaller pieces, about 1/2", but that wasn't really a change. Baked in an 11" x 8" casserole dish and served with butter and maple syrup. DEEELISH and filling! This is COMFORT food. Went perfectly with our fruit salad and scram eggs. Thanks so much for posting. Will make this again, for certain! (I bet it would also be tasty with some fresh blueberries thrown in and served with blueberry syrup...maybe next time!)
