Reviews for Mexican Sausage Crostini
"Followed recipe - Quick, easy and they were crowd favorite for sure. Messy as you assemble them so assemble on wax paper and then put on tray to melt the cheese. Pack the cheese together slightly and press into the egg/sausage mix seemed to hold them together a little better. These are excellent."
"My husband really liked this. It kind of reminded me of a breakfast burrito."
