Sausage Broccoli Bread Recipe

"My husband is in the Air Force, so we move often," relates Kelly Praska of Bellevue, Nebraska. "This lifestyle lets me make friends - and share wonderful recipes like this one - with people from all over the United States."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:16-20 servings


  • 2 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough
  • 1 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 2-1/2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten


  • 1. Thaw dough and let rise according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a skillet over medium heat, cook sausage until no longer pink. Remove sausage with a slotted spoon and set aside. In the drippings, saute the broccoli, tomatoes and onion until crisp-tender; drain and cool.
  • 2. On a lightly floured surface, roll each loaf of dough into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Spread sausage lengthwise down the center third of each rectangle. Top with broccoli mixture and cheese. Fold the short sides in 1 in.; pinch to seal. Fold long sides over filling; pinch to seal.
  • 3. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Brush egg over top and sides of each loaf. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 2 loaves.

"I have probably made this bread a hundred times since I first received the magazine in the mail 10 years ago. It is wonderful exactly as is but I have always used my own homemade bread dough. I am a real DIY-er and don't by premade foods that I can make myself. That said this is one of my families favorites. Its a wonderful starter recipe too. If you like to play with your food like I do try this out you won't be dissappointed. Sometimes I roll it up like you would a cinnamon roll-still cooking in like a loaf, that way all the filling doesn't fall out. This makes it a lot easier to eat on the run. Or make individual sizes to suit everyones tastes. *****freezes well*****"
