Festive Sausage Cups

When I used prepared pie crust for this recipe, it's even easier to form and fill these individual sausage cups. They are a savory and filling snack. Come Thanksgiving and Christmas, my family is especially delighted to see them. — Gail Watkins, South Bend, Indiana

    Its a great appetizer and not too difficult. The left-overs are good cold or warmed up for breakfast.
