At meal time we all want something fast, easy and great tasting to prepare. Here is the answer. This sausage bread is great! You are going to love it for more reasons than just the taste.
The recipe is two recipes that I combined one from a friend and the other from Southern Living. It is a great main dish with a salad or you can serve as an appetizer at a party pairing it with a marinara sauce.
Here's what you need to put this together!
Spread the Dough out
Using Pillsbury French Bread Dough spread it out onto parchment paper. Take it out of the refrigerator right before you need it. If you take it out too soon it makes it very hard to work with.
Brown sausage and drain
Brown sausage in a skillet and drain. For the best flavor I like to use the hot sausage.
Sausage, egg, cheeses, garlic, oregano, and basil
Here you have the drained sausage 1/2 cup swiss cheese, 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1 egg, 1/2 teaspoon oregano, 1/2 teaspoon basil. and 1/2 teaspoon garlic. Mix together.
Spread sausage mixture on the French bread dough
Roll up the dough lengthwise
Roll the dough lengthwise. It is pretty easy to peel the parchment paper off the dough if it sticks. If you tear holes in it just pinch it together. Pinch the ends together and tuck under. Pinch the long side together and flip over.
Make slashes is dough with a knife
Now just stick it the oven and bake. This is so much easier than homemade pizza and satisfies the pizza craving.
Here is the recipe. Enjoy!

Cook sausage in a skillet until browned. Drain. Stir in the rest of ingredients together with sausage. Unroll dough into a rectangular shape onto parchment paper. Sprinkle evenly with sausage mixture. Beginning with long side roll up, jelly roll style. Turn seam side down on baking sheet, and pinch ends to secure filling inside. cut slits across top of dough with a knife or scissors. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until browned. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
