Sausage Bread, Mmmmm

I love sausage bread. We make it as an appetizer for family get-togethers, as a breakfast, lunch and snack.

Sausage bread is easy to pack and carry, and it’s really easy to make. The bonus is that amazing smell of homemade bread that will bring every member of your family into the kitchen! Here’s how to make it:

SAUSAGE BREAD

Makes 2 loaves, to make one loaf, divide recipe in half.

2 loaves of Rhodes frozen bread dough (found in grocer’s freezer case)

1 16 oz. roll of breakfast sausage (Jimmy Deans, Bob Evans, etc.)

1 8 oz. pkg of shredded mozzarella cheese

Thaw bread dough according to pkg instructions – BUT YOU DON’T WANT IT TO RISE. The quick thaw instructions (using the oven work well).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Fry sausage, crumbled til completely cooked. Drain grease.

Coat a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray. Place one loaf of dough on cookie sheet. Pound out dough or use  rolling pin to make it flat and even. About 12 – 14 long, and 7 -8 inches wide

Spoon 1/2 of the cooked sausage down center of dough. Top with 1/2 of the shredded cheese.

Pull sides of break dough over the top, overlapping each other. Pinch together to keep dough from pulling apart.

Close ends of dough, folding and pinching much like wrapping a gift or closing a diaper. Pinch together.

Wrap in aluminum foil.

Repeat for second loaf.

Place wrapped loaves of dough on cookie sheet and baked in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Unwrap to make sure loaf is no longer “doughy.” When cooked, remove from oven. Slice and eat.

Can easily be reheated in oven, wrap in foil and warm at 250 degrees for 15 minutes or until warm.
