Cajun Sausage Bread Recipe

I found this fun recipe in a newspaper years ago and always serve it up for special brunches-and for my Super Bowl crowd. The spicy, stick-to-your-ribs loaf really warms folks up, and family and friends just rave about it.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 35 min. YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Johnsonville® Hot Ground Sausage
  • 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. Crumble sausage into a large skillet; add garlic. Cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. In a large bowl, combine the onions, green pepper and jalapenos. Stir in the sausage mixture and cheese; set aside.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each loaf of dough into a 13-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Top with sausage mixture to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting on greased baking sheets. Brush with butter.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 loaves.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
