-You may have a few servings of tots left in the bag, as a full bag doesn’t quite fit. Use it for a snack later!

-You can bake this in an oven at the same temperature and time.

-No cast iron skillet? Try a 10 x 10 baking pan.

-Want extra zing? Add grilled onions or peppers with the sausage layer.
