"I have used this recipe again and again. They are always a big hit. I add chives if I have them, but they are excellent without. Great for an Easter brunch! I ALWAYS double the recipe, and there are never any left!"

"I think it is really great, and even better if you add extra sage to the sausage."

"This is in the permanent recipe file. Have made these routinely. Great for a quick bite of breakfast on the go, reheat for the next morning and have even added scrambled eggs for a different breakfast bite. Tried and true easy recipe. Used often for buffets and brunches. Really a no-brainer."

"These are easy and always a hit. I do not use chives. This can be prepped the night before then sliced and baked in the morning."

"Have made this recipe numerous times - very easy - and everyone loves them. Frankly, they are just as good without the chives. Have made them for everything from a wedding reception to church get-togethers. A recipe I come back to over and over."

"Very tasty! I thought of adding cheese but decided not too & they were great. Funny thing was that many asked me if there was cheese in them!"

"So simple and so tasty! The only change I made was to add more chives, as my family likes them. The sausage cooked through with no problem. I might recommend that, when spreading the sausage on the dough, use a knife or icing spatula to get a more even, thin layer of the meat. Also, when making these for the first time, don't over-add on the sausage until you see that your oven will cook the 8 oz. sufficiently.

A really great recipe!!"
