Sausage Bread

Sausage Bread

Talk about an easy recipe!  This is so easy you’ll find yourself making it for all kinds of occasions.  Just four ingredients and a couple steps and you have a great dinner, a pot luck hit, or a perfect appetizer for game day! I use Hot Italian sausage for game day where I want to spice things up a bit. I used regular breakfast sausage for other events.  This is a keeper!

Quick and Easy Sausage Bread

1 lb. ground sausage (I like Jimmy Dean in a roll)
1 can refrigerated pizza dough (I used French Bread)
1 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 large egg, beaten, for brushing on top of loaf

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Crumble and brown the sausage in a skillet over medium heat, until no longer pink. Drain off fat.   

Open the tube of pizza dough onto the prepared baking sheet and straighten edges into a rectangle. Sprinkle cooked sausage over the dough, leaving about 1-inch open along the edges. 


Next, sprinkle dough with Mozzarella cheese, completely covering the top.


Then you want to roll it up.  You can roll it up two ways.  Roll up the dough from the side into a jelly-roll or cinnamon-roll style, crimping the seam closed and sealing and tucking the ends under.  Or you can roll it from top to bottom and tuck everything in for a loaf of bread like I did in this picture. Brush the loaf with beaten egg. 


Bake in preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the bread is cooked through. 


Allow loaf to rest 10 minutes before slicing.   Using a long serrated knife slice the bread and serve warm!  Dip in marinara or pizza sauce.
