When we used to have Sunday breakfasts with my grandparents, my mom often made this for grandpa because he enjoyed it so much. Pork sausage and cinnamon bread taste surprisingly good together. —Carolyn Levan, Dixon, Illinois

"Would cut back on the brown sugar in the topping to Half cup a little too sweet ( unless you want sweeter) took it to a church brunch this am it was gone in no time , I did taste a spoonful . I changed the sausage to a full pound to have more meat . I got a lot of compliments on the dish . Will make again . Thanks TOH."
