Sausage & Cheese Bread
(Makes two loaves)
2 loaves of frozen bread dough, thawed (can be found in packs of 5 loaves at your local grocery store. I buy mine at Kroger)
1 lb of browned ground sausage
2 cups of shredded cheddar (or your favorite blend - I use 'light' Mexican blend)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown & drain sausage, set aside. Roll out one loaf of thawed bread dough in a rectangular shape. Sprinkle half of the sausage and 1 cup of the shredded cheese equally over rolled bread dough. Roll bread dough into a log just as you would cinnamon rolls or a jelly roll as shown below. Pinch dough together at the end of your roll to keep roll in place. Place bread roll, seem down, onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until bread begins to brown. Let bread cool for at least 5 minutes and cut into slices.

I usually make two loaves at a time to use all of the sausage. While one loaf bakes, I usually roll out the other loaf and freeze the log wrapped in aluminum paper. The trick is to spray your aluminum foil with a non-stick spray before you wrap the bread log and freeze. Also, make sure to thaw your bread log completely before baking.
