Italian Sausage Bread

This Italian-style stuffed bread is packed with eggs, sausage, pepperoni and cheese. When I know I'll really be pressed for time, I bake this a day in advance and reheat slices for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

    I had wanted to make a stuffed bread for Christmas, and I went back and forth about whether to make this one or not. The scrambled eggs didn't make sense in my head. Finally, I decided to "just go for it." After mixing all the meats and cheeses, I thought, "how in the world is this all going to fit?" But it fit beautifully and came out of the oven exceptionally good looking.We had several people over for Christmas (5 other families/couples). I was asked by 4 of them for this recipe. IT IS FANTASTIC.
