"This was a really good recipe. I made half exactly as written and the other half vegan for my niece. For her portion I used vegan "meat" crumbles and left out the milk and egg. I mixed mine up first and used it as a model for hers; which I slowly added water to match the consistency. She actually liked it better than me and said she is going to make it again for Thanksgiving for herself and my sister who is also vegan."
"Really good. My husband was very surprised that it was from the microwave."
"Very good, i will definitely make again."
"I have made this several times and we love it. It is super easy, very tasty and unlike most of our other recipes. My husband was leary at first, but the spicy sausage and cranberry won him over."
