Crusty Sausage Filled Bread Rolls

Recipe by Julesong
READY IN: 55mins




  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown the sausage in small pieces together with the chopped onion (and the mushrooms and red wine, if using) in a skillet until completely brown and cooked through.
  • Remove meat and onion from the pan with a slotted spoon and let drain on a plate covered with paper towel. Make sure it's drained well! (You can also put it in a colander and rinse it with hot water to get even more drippings removed from the cooked meat, it you like.).
  • When cooled and drained well, place the sausage and onion in a bowl and mix with the eggs, basil, allspice, garlic powder, sage, salt, pepper, mozzarella, and Parmesan (and Tabasco, if using); stir together well.
  • On a lightly floured board, set one pound of the pizza dough; sprinkle the top of the dough lightly with flour and roll it out 1/2-inch thick into an approximate 10x12-inch rectangle.
  • Leaving a 1 1/2 inch border on the sides of the rectangle, spread half the sausage mixture over the dough.
  • Fold in the border of dough and, starting at a narrow end, roll the dough in a"jelly roll" fashion.
  • Place the roll seam-side down on a baking sheet; make the second sausage roll with remaining ingredients and place it on the baking sheet.
  • Bake the rolls for 40-45 minutes at 375 degrees until they are crusty and brown; let cool for about five minutes on a wire rack before serving.
  • Serve warm on cutting boards, with a knife for cutting and an assortment of good mustards.
