I use spicy polish sausage but you can also use Bratwurst, or Keilbasa. The crust is quick and easy and made with cottage cheese. After baking each bundle you can then slice into 1" bite size pieces speared with cocktail pick. I use the sauce below but very versatile recipe so your own sauce would work well too. Enjoy!
