I got this recipe from a home economics instructor when I was teaching in Oklahoma. I think it represents the Southwest because of its spicy flavor. It can be used as an appetizer before a Mexican meal or served as a snack.

"I cut out most of the butter -added a couple of teaspoons and added a little more sausage - this seemed to take care of the greasy effect. Love these"

"Served at a holiday party and they were enjoyed by all. You can make a dipping sauce for them, also. They do need to be served and eaten while hot, because they can get a little greasy when cool."

"VERY good appetizers! A little greasy, but they taste so delicious. They get cold quickly, so meant to be eaten immediately with no leftovers."

"I made these for a gathering and everyone loved them. I brought them in to work and have had several people ask for the recipe. I think I'll try it with turkey sausage next time. I am also considering using mini muffin pans to help keep their shape."

"I must have done something wrong. There was too much butter and too much cheese. These just melted into pancakes in my oven. I don't think I will try again."
