OMG this was awful, it was so sickeningly sweet it was barely tolerable. I should have known that Paula Deen's reciepts are usually way too sweet, to rich or to fatty. It's a trademake of her exagerated "southern" cooking. Bet she thinks "sweet tea" is simple syrup.............yuck
I hope she reads these reviews! YUCK

very good
I made 5 mini loafs w/each receipt (2.5" x 4". They baked b/w 32 and 35min. Doubled the spices which gave real depth of flavor. Ran out of eggs so used 3 for a double batch and actually liked the denser texture.

It's very good tho I used about 2/3 the white sauce and swiss for gruyere. I added hot sauce, about a tablespoon full instead of the nutmeg for a more savory favor. Can't taste the heat but added depth.

wonderful
I cut the amounts in half and it was fine, tho use a deep baking dish. I sautéed the sausage separately and then made the white sauce w/a bit of the sausage drippings. This added extra flavor to the sauce. Also added extra basil, fresh parsley and fresh oregano. Go w/it.
