    Two tips with today’s amazing recipe……

    1. Find a ground sausage that you like. It can be a prepped tube from the grocery store or a visit to a special deli or anything in between.

I also like that they shape it into the face of a pig each day and that makes me smile. But I really like the combinations of spices that gives it a little kick and a lot of taste.

    2. Learn how to clean a mushroom. Because it is a sad sad day when you didn’t REALLY get all the dirt out of it and then after 4-6 hours your dinner actually tastes more like mud than anything else. That’s disgusting.

    Cook on high for 3-4 hours. The filling will cook through and brown just a little on top.
