Reviews for Sausage Bacon Bites
"I made these for my daughter's birthday dinner and they were a big hit. Very simple to make but they only sat for a couple of hours before baking. I bought original Jimmy Dean sausage but turkey would work fine to lighten it up. It took 40 minutes to get them nice and gooey browned and crispy!!"
"Made half the recipe to try and they were gone in a heartbeat. I used turkey sausage links. Very good and easy."
"This made a great last minute after school snack for a house unexpectedly filled with tween boys! Obviously. Didn't wait 4 hours. But I was voted best mom that afternoon!"
"I made for Thanksgiving and Christmas 2011 and plan to again this year."
"served these at a brunch. I should have made a double batch. I used less brown sugar than called for. Just sprinkled after baking."
