Sausage Bread

My sister-in-law would make sausage bread on occasion.  She gave me the recipe a number of years ago.   I made a few changes to make it more like what my family enjoys.  I just changed the cheese, gave 2 options for the bread, and took out the parsley.  If you would like it to be spicy, just use the hot sausage.  I prefer the mild sausage myself.  I usually use the pizza dough and cut it into slices after it's baked as an appetizer for Christmas parties, Thanksgiving dinner, etc.  Today, I thought it might go well with breakfast.  I didn't have any pizza dough so I used crescent rolls.  It turned out tasting even better than the pizza dough and this time I cut it into triangles and served it with eggs and grits.  It was a nice way to change it up.

Sausage Bread

 1 can pizza dough or 2 cans crescent rolls
1 lb. roll of sausage
1 cup Mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. fresh minced garlic
2 eggs

Cook sausage, drain, and chop up.  Mix sausage, cheese, eggs, and garlic in bowl.  Roll dough to 1/4 inch thick.  Spread sausage mixture on the center of the pizza dough.  Bring sides together in the middle and press edges together.  If using crescent rolls, unroll one can and press perforations together.  Spread sausage mixture on dough leaving ½ inch around the edges free.  Open 2nd can of crescent rolls on top of mixture and press perforations and edges together.  Brush the top with olive oil.  Bake at 350 degrees 25-30 minutes.
