Sausage and 3 Cheese Bread

The original sausage and cheese bread recipe we have, came from my wife’s sister.  Over the years we have changed it slightly.  It makes a  great lunch or dinner and a fantastic hors d’oeuvre for a party.  Served warm it’s great and it is easy to rewarm and serve the next day.  Most grocery stores today sell pizza dough and if yours doesn’t a lot of pizza stores will, or as a last resort you can make your own.  We usually make a large batch and freeze them in individual bags and thaw as needed.

For the sausage you have many options.  You can use an italian sausage removed from the casing (mild or hot), or your favorite style, we like Jimmy Dean’s sage sausage it gives a great flavor and isn’t too greasy.

Ingredients for Sausage and 3 Cheese Bread

  1. 1 recipe pizza dough
  2. 1 pound loose Sausage meat 
  3. 1/2 cup Mozzarella diced small
  4. 1/2 cup Asiago diced small
  5. 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  6. 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
  7. 2 eggs

Directions for Sausage and 3 Cheese Bread

Preheat oven to 350°

Fry up the sausage breaking it up into small pieces.  Once cooked drain and place into a bowl.  Add the cheeses, parsley and one egg and combine completely.

Roll the dough out to about a 12 X 9 rectangle. for easiest results place the dough onto the baking sheet before forming the log.  Place the sausage in the center of the dough and pull the long sides of the dough up and over the sausage forming a roll.  Now fold the ends up and over to encase and seal.  Turn the roll over so that the folded seam are on the bottom.

Beat the second egg and brush over the top of the roll.

Now this is a great way to start a party!  Almost  a little too spicy for a SAPP (Scotish American Puppy Princess) but I did enjoy it greatly.  A 5 paw recipe for sure!

  2. 1 pound bag frozen spinach well drained and chopped
  3. 1 can diced tomato well drained
  4. 1 pound pasta your choice

  6. 1 Tbs hot pepper flakes
  7. 1 cup reserved pasta water or
  8. 1/2 cup chicken stock
  9. Olive oil

Directions for pasta, sausage, spinach and tomato

In a large fry pan cook and brown the sausage.  Once cooked let the sausage rest for 10 -15 minutes before cutting into coin slices.

Cook the pasta and while the pasta is cooking put the sausage back into the fry pan add the spinach tomato and garlic and about 8 Tbs Olive oil and cook until garlic is softened and the other ingredients are heated through.

Drain the pasta, add back to the pot then add all the other ingredients and stir to combine thoroughly.  If it looks to dry add some of the pasta water, chicken stock or more Olive oil.

Sausage Peppers and Onions

Such simple ingredients to make such a great meal.  Cooked properly it could become one of your favorite meals.  It’s easy to prepare and makes a great anytime dinner.  Leftovers, if there are any , go great with a baguette for a  sandwich.  The sausage can be sweet, hot or a combination of both, your choice.  The bell peppers can be all one type or a combination, I like to use green,  yellow , and red for a nice presentation.  It can be a stand alone dish or served with pasta or rice.

Ingredients for Sausage Peppers and Onions

  1. approximately 6 Italian sausage
  2. 6 medium bell peppers, cored and sliced not too thin
  3. 2 large white or Spanish onions sliced
  4. 4 cloves of garlic finely diced
  5. 4-5 Tbs good Olive oil
  6. salt and pepper to taste

Directions for Sausage Peppers and Onions

In a large frying pan place the Olive oil and on medium to medium high heat cook the sausage until browned well on all sides.  As the sausage cooks it will begin to curl, at this point cut in half and continue to cook and brown all sides.  When the sausage are nicely browned on all sides add the peppers onions and garlic.  Stir lightly to combine and then let the pan do the work stirring every 3 – 4 minutes to cook the vegetables all the way through.  When the vegetables are cooked through  put all in a colander to drain off the excess oil and grease.  Once drained return to pan taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.  The sausage can be served whole or cut on a bias into bite size pieces.  Then plate, serve by itself or with pasta or rice.
