- 1 pound Johnsonville® Mild Ground Italian Sausage
- 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack or part-skim mozzarella cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen bread dough, thawed
- 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
- Marinara sauce, warmed, optional
- In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the Monterey Jack cheese, one egg and Italian seasoning.
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an 18-in. x 6-in. rectangle. Spoon sausage mixture over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal.
- Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet; pinch ends together to form a ring. With scissors, cut from outside edge to two-thirds of the way toward center of ring at 1-in. intervals.
- Beat remaining egg; brush over dough. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
- Bake at 350° for 28-32 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with marinara sauce if desired. Yield: 12 servings.

It was very tasty, i added roasted red peppers .. i did have trouble rolling out the bread dough.. will probably use pizza dough next time.. more pliable.
I added onions black olives and jalapeno peppers... It was yummy!
This is fair to midland at best. I made this last night and I got scolded. My wife wanted to know if I was having an off-night; it was not my usual. She didn't like it at all. I did, however, find the inclusion of an egg as a binder for the meat and cheese rather interesting. I would suggest that if folks don't have the time to make the dough, find a grocery store with its own bakery. Chances are that they will have refrigerated dough on hand. I make a pizza dough for my Stromboli, which is stupid simple to make and can be made ahead of time and refrigerated. A good pizza dough does make a difference. I also use a good quality of pepperoni, which I slice thinly, about 1/2 lb. or so of good quality Italian sausage, diced green peppers and onions, a little garlic powder, Italian herbs and a good shredded mozzarella. I either egg-wash the top of the loaf or brush on a little EVOO, then top the loaf with sesame seeds and bake.
I made this last night and it was absolutely delicious! Save yourself a little time when you get home from work and have everything ready to put on the bread. This recipe is even better the next day. You could make lots of variations of this with different meats and spices. I did not have the cheese so I grated and substituted a dried tomato cheddar cheese. It was wonderful!
Have made this for years. I use turkey Italian sausage. You can not tell the difference.
Add precooked peppers (green and red) and marinara sauce. Delicious.
