One of the main reasons I love the Holidays, is the excuse to spend extra time in the kitchen making things!!
Recently I needed to whip up something for a work Christmas potluck. But what could I take? What would be different than all the cookies and pasta salads?
I needed something hearty and warm, something I could bring in to the crew for breakfast,then I found this recipe! It was originally for a sausage roll made out of actual bread, I decided to make it out of crossaint rolls and the stick it in a Bundt cake pan.
What resulted was a gorgeous, perfectly browned, warm hearty dish, that is sure to be a crowd pleaser, and the best part? You can make it ahead!!
Breakfast Sausage Bread Roll
You will need :
2 cans of Crossaint Rolls
1 tube of ground sausage
2 cups of shredded cheese
3 large eggs
1 bundt pan
Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees
Spray your bundt pan liberally with Vegetable Spray
Take one tube of the croissant rolls and lay them out in the bundt pan.
Make sure to push the seams together and push down into the pan a bit, you don’t want any opportunity for leaks!
Put your sausage in a pan and brown it, making sure to break it up well ( I actually like to use a whisk to do this works real well!!)
Once your sausage is browned,drain off the fat and return it to the heat
Now add your three eggs, one at a time, mixing well with each egg.
Next, take one cup of shredded cheese and sprinkle it over the top of your sausage and eggs,mix well.
Put your sausage mixture in your croissant lined pan.
Next add another cup of cheese
Finally, open up the second can of croissant dough and arrange them on top, once again pushing together seams to close everything off.
Then, put it in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the dough is browned.
This is the beautiful thing that results!!
If yo want, you can make this night before, bake it and then stick it in the fridge, the next morning, slice it BEFORE you warm it in the oven, set the oven to low like 200 degrees and warm them for 10 minutes or so.
I brought this in to work and people devoured it!
