Surprise Sausage, Fritters and Biscuits (Okonomiyaki)

The name means "what you like" and each menu item has healthy ingredients I like and my husband devoured.  Chicken Apple Sausage and Okonomiyaki were recipes in Food and Nutrition.  Caramelized Onion and Parmesan Biscuits  were featured in The Local Palate.  We enjoyed these for Saturday Supper and we'll have more for Sunday Breakfast.
