It’s been awhile since I’ve made this family favorite so thought I’d surprise my son with it this morning. He told me it’s one of his favorite things I make for breakfast. Enjoy!
Breakfast Sausage Bread
2 loaves (1 lb each) frozen white bread dough, thawed
1/2 lb mild pork sausage
1/2 lb hot pork sausage
1 1/2 cups diced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 1/2 cups (10 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 tps dried rosemary, crushed
1 tsp garlic powder
Allow dough to rise until nearly doubled. Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, cook and crumble sausage. Add mushrooms and onion. Cook and stir until the sausage is browned and vegetables are tender, drain. Cool. Beat 1 egg; set aside. To sausage mixture, add 2 eggs, cheese and seasonings; mix well. Roll each loaf of dough into a 16 inch by 12 inch rectangle. Spread half the sausage mixture on each loaf to within 1 inch of edges. Roll jelly-roll style, starting at a narrow end, seal edges. Place on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes; brush with beaten egg. Bake 5-10 minutes more or until golden brown. Serve warm.
