Silly question - but is there a way to print the recipe without cutting and pasting it into a document?  Those look fabulous and I bet the hubby would eat since he's a sausage freak :)

Hi, Sunshine! :)

There are two ways to print posts...

(1) Cut and paste, for individual posts.
(2) Click on 'Print' on the lower or upper right corner of a thread. However, this will not only print the recipe,
but all other posts in that thread.

oh gosh, i didn't realize you could print straight from this page.  this wasn't bad cause i only got two pages of receip and other peoples' responses.  i wouldn't try it when there are greater than that many pages. ;D

Thanks for the tips!

In the Fat Fast book - there are Ham & Cheese Cups with different ingredients.  Hubby liked these and I had 1/2 here and there as needed.  Can't wait to try this version!
