OMG, I am in flavor heaven twisted. Seriously the best breakfast Bake we have ever tried. I don't usually like breakfast sausages, but they were awesome in this recipe. Quick and easy to make with excellent results, great textures and amazing flavor. I made this recipe exactly as stated and wouldn't change a thing. Garnished with warmed Maple Syrup and a little powdered sugar. Made FYC Tag game. Kudos of twisted one on making it into my Favorites Cookbook for 2017. Wish I could give this recipe 10 stars... it deserves it... even the picky dh loved it. Doing the happy dance.
