About this Recipe

From my family to yours! I got this recipe from the OG, my mom. She helped me with this recipe a few years back, and I keep improving it! You have to try this. I used my chipotle mushroom sausage this time, and it was a home run all day. You can find the recipe for the chipotle mushroom sausage in my Turnip Vegan Recipe Club.
