Farmer's Market Sausage Pie Recipe

Farmer's Market Sausage Pie Recipe

Our 4-year-old son, Lukas, named this savory pie for the Saturday morning farmer's market that's held near our state capitol. Most of the fresh ingredients called for in the recipe can be found there and baked into this deliciously different entree. —Teri Schuman, Oregon, Wisconsin
