"In terms of time to cook and difficulty, it was great. Fast and easy. However, it just wasn't that good and the buttermilk curdled as soon as it was added. Pretty average."

"Very easy to make. I tripled the recipe as I had 1 lb of bulk sausage in a chub. We loved the taste of this and it made excellent leftovers for my lunches."
