    Very Good

    I like it, but 20 servings is unrealistic. 8-10 maybe, which is still reasonable. - 2/28/10

    I made this and it is alright. Personally, I thought it was a little bland. I will probably make it again but try adding some onions and celery. Something to jazz it up a bit. - 2/23/09

    This version is admittedly a little blander than the original my mom makes, simply because this recipe uses lower fat sausage and fat free cheese, which cuts into the taste a little. Onions would be pretty good with this - may have to try it next time I make it! :)

    Variations of this recipe abound. At our B&B, I used fat free sharp cheddar as it adds a little more flavor. I use it in my cheese sauces, scalloped potatoes, etc., too. It really helps. Also, Southwestern egg substitute would dimish fat and calories without flavor loss, if you like those flavors - 1/9/10

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was a hit. I ended up using Jimmy Dean Sage b/c they didn't have the light. Not as healthy, but it worked well. I'll definitely make it again. - 6/4/09
