"I made these for dinner and now my DH asks for them all the time! So epically good, so easy and everyone loves them. I made just the slaw for a family picnic and it was gone before the potato salad and that's never happened before!"

"I am not a fan of apples or dried cranberry's in my coleslaw or bbq sauce so I left them out. The result was a very tasty slider that i would serve at any get together."

"My husband really liked these. They were easy, fast, and very good. We especially liked the coleslaw, and I plan on making a larger batch sometime to just eat as coleslaw and not just to add to the sausage patties. I liked the coleslaw even though I really don't like nuts at all! This recipe is a keeper."

"This was SOOOOO good! I was a little nervous while making it, just because it seems a little different, but all those flavors together is just fabulous! EVERYONE loved it, which is saying a lot in this family!!!"
