    Amazing pork dinner, my kids and husband raved about it. Definitely went down as a top pick in my house. I will make it again, the only thing I changed was adding more apricot preserve to the topping to balance out the spice in the sausage.

    This was an outstanding recipe. Voted to be added to the family cookbook as I was putting it into the oven. Great flavor, easy to make and extra tender. Terrific!!!
