Brunch Egg and Sausage Soft Tacos

“Don't wait for a weekend brunch to have these, they make a wonderful light dinner also! Italian sausage or the small pork breakfast sausages can be used for this recipe, just remember to remove the casings before cooking them meat. Keep your cream cheese cold so that it can be cut into small cubes. The exact amounts don't really matter for this recipe, you can adjust to taste. This is REALLY GOOD!!!!”
