Used whole-grain pizza crust, prepared the night before and allowed to rise overnight in the fridge. Skipped the onions; could have used more eggs. A picture would have been helpful in making the criss-cross pattern. Would make again with more filling.
Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Braid
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.
