Sausage & Cheese Bread and more Elf antics

I make this appetizer several times over the holidays and thought I would share the recipe with y'all.  It is very easy to make and is very popular with my boys.  If you attending a party with any men in attendance I can pretty much guarantee this bread will be gobbled up quickly.

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. 

One loaf rolled with sausage & cheese and one frozen loaf section

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.

 Last, but not least, here is what our elf, Jingle has been up to the last couple of days. 

Jingle had it 'snow' cotton balls all over the kids beds!

Jingle decorated the entire room with Christmas bow!

This was a huge hit! Jingle brought doughnut snowmen

Jingle wrote 'Ho! Ho! Ho!' on the kids to be silly!

Now time to wake the girls and off to dinner at Epcot.
