"This easy treatment for pork caught my eye when I was paging through a cookbook and saw the word "caramelized," Elisa Lochridge recalls from her home in Beaverton, Oregon. "The slightly sweet glaze is yummy. I like to serve this over noodles or rice...or with mashed potatoes."
Sausage shows up on the table often at Melanie Jones' place. "I make this simple stir-fried supper about every other week," she pens from Springfield, Illinois. Soy sauce and garlic powder add flavor to each bite of turkey bratwurst.
The changes made in this made over recipe slashes the fat by 70% and saturated fat by 80%, cut calories and sodium by about half and reduced cholesterol by more than a third. Yet the buttery-tasting makeover version is sure to please your family.—Helen Copeland, Greenback, Tennessee
"I serve this pork roast often when I'm entertaining company," says Michele Montgomery, Lethbridge, Alberta. "It's especially good with garden-fresh herbs, but dried work nicely as well. It makes a stunning presentation."
Pens Joyce Haworth from Des Plaines, Illinois, "When the stores in my area stopped carrying our favorite turkey sausage, I was desperate! I went to the library for some books on sausage-making...and was surprised to learn how easy it is! We use this sweet spicy sausage on pizza, in spaghetti sauce, casseroles and breakfast patties."
