These are exactly the recipe a fried uses and I've just made them for the first time myself and they're perfect. I'm not a rosemary fan so I used 1/2 the rosemary and the rest fresh thyme and a sprinkle of powder. My friend sometimes changes up the sausage, either using hot breakfast or even Italian sausage w/ cheddar, parmesan, garlic and basil. Such an awesome recipe:)
These were made on 12/24/09 for Christmas Eve munchies, and I'm sorry I waited till now to rate this. I followed the recipe as it was written. But I do think that if these are made again, I'm cutting the amount of baking mix down to 2 1/2 cups of baking mix. I really liked the addition of the rosemary and parsley. Thanks for posting and " Keep Smiling :) "
Great blend of flavors. I was looking for something a little different than the standard recipe. I used the "Heart Smart" Bisquick and couldn't tell the difference at all. I think they are even a little less greasy and lighter than the regular mix. And, since I was feeling lazy, I added a Tbl spoon of dried minced onions just for kicks. They were a big hit. Thanks for posting!
These are wonderful! I made some up tonight because school starts tomorrow and I wanted a quick little breakfast for the kids in the morning. I think they ate half of them just munching so I KNOW that I will have to make more. I only ended up with about 5 dozen, but I think that was mainly because I only used 2 cups of cheese. I did end up having to use about 3/4 cup of milk to get mine to stay together though. I'm so glad I found this recipe because the rosemary is such a nice touch and I wouldn't have thought of it on my own. Thanks for posting a new family favorite!!!
