Stuffed Breakfast Loaf
My favorite hobby for the past 38 years has been collecting cookbooks. Presently I have close to 500! I found this recipe in one of my favorite books and it's been part of our holiday breakfast tradition for years.
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.
- 1 unsliced round French or sourdough bread (1 pound)

- 1/2 cup each shredded Monterey Jack and cheddar cheese
- Cut bread in half horizontally; hollow out top and bottom, leaving a 3/4-in. shell. Save removed bread for another use.
- In a large skillet, cook the sausage, onion, green pepper and mushrooms until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender. Remove mixture and set aside; drain all but one tablespoon of drippings. Add eggs; cook and stir gently until set. Stir in sausage mixture; remove from the heat.
