Sausage-Stuffed Potatoes

These cheese-topped baked potatoes stuffed with pork sausage are nearly a meal in themselves. "I learned to cook at my mother's side," recalls Janice Murray of Rogers City, Michigan, "and this recipe was a family tradition."

    These are good! I am always looking for ways to use sausage in dinner meals, since we rarely have big breakfast fare anymore. I stirred in some sour cream, also, and added chopped green onions under the cheddar cheese. Served with peas'n'carrots. Thank you, Janice :)
