Now here is a sausage dish that will call your taste buds to attention. The heat of the pork sausage with the tangy and cream cheese is delicious. Feel free to substitute a milder sausage if you don't like spicy food. It's a great way to start the day served alongside scrambled eggs. Or, cut into small pieces as an appetizer. We love a versatile recipe!
