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.

    Bake in oven at 400 degrees F for about 20 - 25 minutes until nicely browned.

    Remove from oven and using a sharp knife, slice into 1' pices. Serve on a large platter centered with bowls of your fave mustard, melted cheeses or dip.

    Enjoy! A fave for all! I guess this is a higher level for "pigs in a blanket"! LOL
