  1. Again a recipe I would love to try, but in Canada the only meat I could use is the ground beef all the others we don’t carry.

  2. I agree it is very frustrating! Instead try omitting the bacon and sausage and replace with with 1 lb ground pork, with following seasonings added while frying it: 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp dried parsley, 3/4 tsp dried Italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/8 tsp dried red pepper flakes, 1/2 tsp crushed anise or fennel seed, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp salt. Let me know how it turns out!
