Sausage Bread

This is yummy!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. 

Ingredients for sausage bread

Here's what you need to put this together!

Pillsbury French Bread

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

Brown sausage and drain

   Brown sausage in a skillet and drain.  For the best flavor I like to use the hot sausage. 

Sausage, egg, swiss cheese, cheddar cheese

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.

Ready to roll

Spread sausage mixture on the French bread dough

Rolling the 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.

Slash the dough

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!

Sausage Bread

  • 1 lb. hot sausage browned and drained
  • 1 can refrigerated French Bread dough
  • 1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  •  1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon basil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic

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.

Happy Cooking,

  1. Whoa! This is too weird. I’m planning on writing a post about my MIL’s sausage bread and have been waiting for the recipe. I have never seen a recipe like it, but yours looks remarkably similar. Hers is an Italian family recipe. It’s amazing, isn’t it? I’ll be sure to link to yours when I post it. 🙂
