Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Braid

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.

Oxmoor House AUGUST 2011

  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 slice)

Ingredients

  • 1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 4 ounces chicken sausage with apples, chopped
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded mild cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°.

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

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.

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.

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.

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