    I added 4 thin slices of minced taylor ham to and it was the bomb. the taylor ham just gave it that zing and wonderful smoked flavor you want in a breackfast sausage sandwich. Nice way to start my day on an english muffin thin slice of cheese, makes me ready for anything the day would bring. - 4/17/11

    I made this a couple of nights ago. I used half of the mixture for burgers and it was ok but it didn't taste much like a burger. I used the other half to make sausage for breakfast, the next day and had it with scrambled eggs and it was awesome. I like it much better as a sausage than as a burger - 11/25/08
