Easy Sausage Stromboli

Are you ready for the BIG GAME on Sunday?!?!?! I can’t believe football season is over! I’m so sad!! I am going to have to drown my sorrows in tons of great football food during the Super Bowl. Good thing football food is my favorite. I’ve been working hard on my menu. One thing that I know will be on the menu is this amazing Sausage Bread! OMG! SO good!!!! So simple yet so delicious. We ate this for lunch last week and loved it. I served the bread with some warm pizza sauce. Perfection!

How to Make Sausage Bread

As I said, this bread is very easy to make. Start with cooking some sausage. Combine cooked sausage with shredded mozzarella cheese, egg, dijon mustard, onion powder, fennel seeds, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Unroll a can of refrigerated pizza dough. Spread sausage mixture over dough. Starting with the long side, roll up dough; press edges to seal. Make 3 to 4 slits on top of the loaf. Brush the loaf with some garlic butter and bake.

  • I used Jimmy Dean sausage. This is also delicious with Italian sausage.
  • You can bake this bread ahead of time and reheat it when you are ready to serve.
  • Can Sausage Bread be frozen? Yes! Allow the baked bread to cool completely. Wrap the bread in plastic wrap and foil and freeze. When ready to serve, thaw and reheat covered in the oven at 350ºF until warm.
  • This is delicious served with warm pizza sauce. Here is our recipe for Homemade Pizza Sauce: https://www.plainchicken.com/easy-homemade-pizza-sauce/

  1. I've made this twice and really, really enjoy it BUT I do have one question/problem. I had never purchased the french bread dough before and expected to be able to easily "roll out the dough" like crescent roll dough but it doesn't seem to have any perforations. Am I missing something? lol It tasted good but I made such a mess of my dough that it wasn't very attractive and, more importantly, there wasn't enough room to use all of the filling. I still sauteed the filling to get the egg cooked and ate it on toasted english muffins but the french bread is SO good with it that I would like to make it as you describe. Any hints?

  2. This was awesome. Big hit with everyone. I only had spicy mustard instead of Dijon, and it was a bit strong. I might dial that back a bit. But will be making again!!!

    1. She says what to do with it in the recipe – Combine remaining melted butter, Italian seasoning and garlic. Brush on top of bread loaf.
