"We got uncooked sausage with castings instead of smoked sausage. I was confused and it definitely should have had cooked sausage. I think it needed a little salt. It was tasty. Tidbits would have been better for this."

"Love this dish. We have it quite often. I use the pineapple tidbits because the chunks seemed too much. My daughter uses the crushed pineapple because her family likes the sweetness all the way throughout the dish. Whichever way, I have given this recipe to many people that really like it."

"I didn't have any smoked sausage so I tried it with brats. I think that next time I should stick with the recipe. I also used crushed pineapple instead of cubed. I thought that part worked just fine."

"I always know a recipe is good if my husband goes back for seconds - he went back for thirds with this recipe! I did follow the advice of a previous rating and added additional brown sugar, cider vinegar and soy sauce - no further seasoning was needed"
