Very good and unique taste! I used 1 lb of regular pork sausage and 1/2 of maple pork sausage. Once mixed together, the combo produced a very nice, subtle sweet taste! Also, I used a pkg of colesalw cabbage and less red pepper flakes. I was skeptical about the sour cream but it really brings this dish together! Served in "Peppy's Pita Bread" from this site and the way these were devoured, I'd wager that lunch was a hit! Thanks for the neat idea Holly!

I must admit, when I first read this recipe I was a little aprehensive. I'm not a big fan of cabbage and neither are my kids. But, my husband found it and it reminded him of an old recipe his mom used to prepare. So we tried it...and we absolutely loved it! Even the kids went back for more. Next time I'll probably make a little extra so I can pack for lunch the next day. Another great one to add to the recipe box!

Great, fast and tasty recipe. BUT, watch the red pepper. Thankfully I read the reviews before making this and only added 1 teaspoon of red pepper and it was still too hot for the kids to eat! We like spicy foods, but even cutting down the amount of pepper it was still spicy. The taste was a great combination. And it was such a quick recipe to make. I WILL make it again, but only add a pinch of red pepper.

Nice flavor and soooo easy. My hubby loves bierrocks and these are alot like them with less bread. I used Peppys Pita Bread because I had no pita pockets in the house. Some folks may find this filling a little rich with so much sausage, I cut the richness by using half ground beef with half sausage. Thanks Holly.

We sure love this one! My oldest daughter loved it so much that she made it for her boyfriend and he asked for a copy of the recipe. Thanks Holly!

Great recipe. Goes great with venison sausage. I have already passed this recipe on to two others.
