Very tasty treat! I did leave out the green pepper since I don't really care for them, but other than that, I followed the recipe. It was very easy to make and it looked great too. I cooked it for just under 20 minutes.
I had this recipe from a magazine years ago and had lost it. Made again today for a trial run before making for brunch tomorrow at church. It's as good as I remembered! Don't be tempted to use more than the 12oz of sausage or you wind up with the bread spread too thin. I also used red pepper instead of green; we like the flavor better. Impressive looking easy brunch item! Thanks for posting J9!!
Awesome Christmas brunch at the work place. Everyone raved it was the first item eaten. Thanks from the Fire guys in Texas.
