"I gleend this from a friend off the internet. Oh, breakfast recipes. Well, I have one of those. I don't get this anymore because this third world country doesn't have bulk sausage, but I remember it well. The first time I had this, that one girl in San Antonio fixed it so it even has a memory factor which of course, I have never divulged to any of the women in my life.Goes well with cold beer and if you want, a little salsa picante.
