  1. Hi, Cynthia

    What a great post to read going into the weekend.  This recipe looks great….easy to prepare.  Can you tell me if this recipe is gluten-free or what I would have to do to make it so.  Sausage is usually GF, but sometimes you just don’t know.  If I can prepare this ensuring it’s gluten free, then I have something to make for the big game party this weekend.  Thanks for posting.
