    Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    3 loaves

Ingredients

  • 3 loaves (1 pound each) frozen bread dough
  • 1 pound bulk spicy pork sausage
  • 1 pound bulk mild pork sausage
  • 1 pound bulk sage pork sausage
  • 1 pound smoked kielbasa or Polish sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 can (6 ounces) ripe olives, drained and sliced
  • 1 jar (5-3/4 ounces) pimiento-stuffed olives, drained and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted

Directions

  • Thaw bread dough on a greased baking sheet according to package directions; let rise until nearly doubled.
  • 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.
  • Roll each loaf into a 17x9-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.
  • Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter while warm. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.
Editor's Note: Bake loaves may be frozen when cooled. Thaw at room temperature for 2 hours. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes.
