"I have made this time and again and it never fails to get compliments. I do make some alterations, however. My husband loves his beef, so I do half turkey sausage and half ground beef. The flavors blend very nicely, it stores well (if there are leftovers), and it is very affordable. This is definitely a family favorite. :)"

"These were excellent! Very tasty. I did add some minced garlic to the turkey sausage towards the end of browning it. There were great. I am sure you could use traditional pork sausage if you prefer. You could also use any cheese of your liking. These are going to be a regular at my house now. Also, I bet they freeze well- I plan to try that as well."
