"Excellent! Everyone thought it sounded weird, but once they tried it, they loved it! I'm going to add more sausage next time.....the amount that it calls for doesn't give it enough sausage flavor. The way it is, there's just a hint of sausage.....I think it needs a little more!"

"I made this for Christmas brunch a couple of years ago and everyone loved it. I made it again this Christmas (2012) and loved it all the more! I made the sauce both times, which only adds to the flavor. FYI- I added a bit more water to the sauce to thin it out so it would go further. My company was a little late so more water was added and it didn't hurt it a bit. Love, love, love it!"

"Oh My!!! So yummy! Great, quick, and easy! My family loved it! We didn't make the blueberry sauce, just maple syrup...didn't have time as we were so busy opening Christmas presents! Perfect Christmas breakfast! Even my 2 year old gobbled it up! Thank you for a great recipe!"

"I make this quite often for brunches of holidays. It is also good with plain syrup, as we run out of blueberry before the end of the pan."
