Sausage Bread Recipe……..

So here’s an oldie but a goodie…..Sausage Bread.

I got this recipe out of a Southern Living magazine years ago and it is a go to recipe for me!  Just took it to my Bible Study Breakfast Potluck this week and it was gobbled down once again!  I heard a lady eating a piece of this bread say, “Some one got  up early and baked this morning!”  Which isn’t true……this recipe had 3 ingredients and is in fact, too easy not to try it out yourself!  And pardon the pictures….these were shot on my old Olympus Camera several years back.  Here’s the three ingredients you’ll need……

A pound of sausage, a tube of Pilsbury Crusty French Loaf Dough, and some Pepper Jack cheese (I prefer the Pepper Jack but Monterey Jack will do just fine if you don’t like the heat of the Pepper Jack).  You will not need 2 pounds of cheese as listed on the package……8 to 12 ounces should be just fine.

First, spray a cookie sheet or sheet pan with cooking spray.  Open the dough tube and lay it on the greased sheet pan.  Find the seam on the roll of dough and begin to unroll it until it is completely flat.  Don’t stretch it, but shape it into a rectangle, like so.

Next, open your sausage and place in a skillet to cook and brown.

When fully cooked, pour into a paper towel lined bowl.

Then fold up the corners of the paper towel and press to extract as much fat/grease as you can from the sausage.

Unfold the paper towel and pour the sausage onto the dough surface and spread out gently with your hand until it is evenly distributed over the surface of the dough.  Add the grated cheese to the top of the sausage, distributing evenly as well.  You will look have something that looks like this after you’ve added the cheese.

Next, you will begin to carefully and slowly roll the dough from one long side to the opposite, like so…..

When you have reached the opposite side, pinch the seam closed and pinch or tuck the ends of the loaf under.  Make 3 to 5 score marks on the top of the bread with a knife……..

Then follow the instructions on the tube of dough for baking…..I believe you bake at 350 degrees for 17-25 minutes but do check the package instructions!  Then pull it out of the oven and slice and serve!

I promise you won’t be disappointed!
