Save this filling breakfast bread for a morning when you aren't rushed. Young bakers will enjoy helping fill and then braid the dough. Feel free to substitute a milder cheese in place of the Monterey Jack.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Unroll dough onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; pat into a 15 x 10-inch rectangle.

Step 3

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sausage; cook 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in eggs; cook 1 minute or until set. Remove from heat.

Step 4

Sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese lengthwise down center of dough, leaving a 2 1/2-inch border on each side. Spoon egg mixture over cheese. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over egg mixture.

Step 5

Make 2-inch-long diagonal cuts about 1 inch apart on both sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling using a sharp knife or kitchen shears. Alternately arrange strips diagonally over filling. Fold ends under to seal. Brush with egg white.

Step 6

Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut into slices.
