READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Laura Bruce

Here is a good way to make a little meat go a long way. These are good enough to serve company! I found this recipe in a great little booklet called, Dinner on the Double, by Better Homes and Gardens.

This was a great recipe. I made a healthier version using 50 % less fat sausage and low fat cheeses. Next time I will make this with ground turkey sausage, to cut the fat even more. Very tasty and filling. Made the whole recipe and froze half of it for a no prep second meal. For 2 people it was 4 meals.
