Sausage Stars

   Last weekend I got to help at a "Holiday Cooking Contest" at a local grocery store. These are always fun because the contestants get to try each others entries. Appetizers are one of my absolute favorite foods, so I just had to try a sample of these little tidbits. The judges were delighted at the surprising flavor pop in these little nibbles.
