Sausage Bread

Yield

Makes 6 servings

Refrigerated dough is the secret to whipping up this quick and easy bread recipe that's filled with hearty sausage and gooey cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1 (1-lb.) package ground hot pork sausage
  • 1 (11-oz.) can refrigerated French bread dough
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded pizza cheese blend

How to Make It

  1. Cook sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until sausage crumbles and is no longer pink. Remove from pan; drain well, pressing between paper towels.

  2. Unroll dough into a rectangular shape on a lightly greased baking sheet; sprinkle evenly with sausage and cheese. Beginning with 1 long side, roll up, jelly-roll fashion. Turn, seam side down, on baking sheet, and pinch ends to secure filling inside. Cut 3 (1/4-inch-deep) slits across top of dough with a sharp paring knife.

  3. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until browned. Remove from oven; let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
