  1. Thaw bread dough on a greased baking sheet according to package directions; let rise until nearly doubled.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook pork sausages until no longer pink; drain. Place in a large bowl. Add kielbasa, cheeses and olives; set aside.
  3. Roll each loaf into a 17-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Spread a third of the sausage mixture on each rectangle to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Pinch seams; place seam side down on greased baking sheets. Form each into a circle; pinch ends together to seal.
  4. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter while warm. Store in the refrigerator or freezer. Yield: 3 loaves.
Editor's Note: Bake loaves may be frozen when cooled. Thaw at room temperature for 2 hours. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes.

"I make this all the time. Got the recipe from freezer pleasers recipe book, so I have enough to freeze after. Freezes really well. I change the recipe up a bit and add green pepper, black olives, onion and pepperoni."

"My family just loves this recipe. I have made it several times and it is one of their favorites. One hint-get some in the freezer before the family realizes that they are cooked."
