Sausage cheese bread is a great choice for a fabulous make-ahead Christmas morning breakfast or brunch or for Mother’s or Father’s Day. Also, this versatile, tasty, and easy to make bread is delicious served as an appetizer with marinara sauce or even as a light entrée with a salad. Read on to find out how to make this quick three-ingredient treat!
My two children and their spouses joined me and my husband at our river cabin several weeks ago, and we spent the weekend jet skiing and just relaxing. One of the reasons I was able to relax was I did most of the food prep ahead of time so I wouldn’t be stuck in the kitchen while everyone else was down at the dock, or out on the river.
One of my favorite make-ahead breakfast menus when we have company, is sausage cheese bread, Caramel Soaked French Toast, and Summer Fruit Salad with Orange Syrup. In fact, I had this same menu at a brunch for 20 we hosted for out-of-town company and family that came to help me and my husband celebrate our recent marriage. And, it has been my go-to-make-ahead Christmas Day Breakfast menu for more years than I can count. On Christmas, I usually serve Old Fashioned Southern Ambrosia instead of the summer fruit salad.
How to make Breakfast Sausage Cheese Bread
You will only need three ingredients for Breakfast Sausage Cheese Bread and they are a can of refrigerated french bread dough, mozzarella cheese, and sausage. That’s it!
To make the bread, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Then open the can of dough and find the seam. Once you have the seam, carefully unroll the dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. You should have a rectangle.
Sprinkle 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese evenly on the dough and then top that with cooked, drained and crumbled sausage. ( To make this a make-ahead dish, I cooked my sausage and crumbled it the day before we went down to the river.)
Now comes the fun part. Starting at one end, very carefully roll up the bread dough jelly-roll style as tight as you can, and pinch the ends slightly to keep the filling from oozing out. Also, make sure that the seam is under your bread log and cut a few shallow slits on the top.
Pop it in a 350-degree oven for about 30 minutes.
Once the sausage cheese bread is done, let it sit for about 5 minutes if you can get your family to wait that long, and slice it into about 1-1 1/2 inch slices.
