This recipe originates from my sausage bread which I would always make for special occasions and give as gifts during the holidays. I realized, and so did my kids, that this is just too good not to have more than a few times a year. So that is how my sausage bread rounds as a delicious anytime appetizer came about!

The aroma in the Test Kitchen, while these were baking was awesome! I knew they were going to be good. The sweet Italian sausage with the cheese and garlic stuffing is so flavorful. I love that these are smaller... you can eat even more! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
