This was a good recipe, however, I crumbled the sausage up instead of making patties and it turned out well this way. You can never have too many side dish recipes and I am sure this will come in handy for the next party. Thanks for sharing.

Well sweet potatoes and yams are diffrent. Keep that in mind when preparing any recipe.



A very good recipe, I followed the advice of someone else and crumbled the sausage which worked great. We found it a little greasy so next time I will eliminate the butter, as even after draining the sausage there was still grease.
