Ready In:
2 large sausage rolls




  • 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.

  1. wonderful. My kids love it as does the hub. If it passes his muster, it must be good, because he is not against sending something 'back to the kitchen' if it's not to his liking.
  2. This was VERY heavy, very greasy, and the dough in the middle never cooked all the way through. Disappointing.


<p>It's simply this: I love to cook! :) <br /><br />I've been hanging out on the internet since the early days and have collected loads of recipes. I've tried to keep the best of them (and often the more unusual) and look forward to sharing them with you, here. <br /><br />I am proud to say that I have several family members who are also on RecipeZaar! <br /><br />My husband, here as <a href=>Steingrim</a>, is an excellent cook. He rarely uses recipes, though, so often after he's made dinner I sit down at the computer and talk him through how he made the dishes so that I can get it down on paper. Some of these recipes are in his account, some of them in mine - he rarely uses his account, though, so we'll probably usually post them to mine in the future. <br /><br />My sister <a href=>Cathy is here as cxstitcher</a> and <a href=>my mom is Juliesmom</a> - say hi to them, eh? <br /><br />Our <a href=>friend Darrell is here as Uncle Dobo</a>, too! I've been typing in his recipes for him and entering them on R'Zaar. We're hoping that his sisters will soon show up with their own accounts, as well. :) <br /><br />I collect cookbooks (to slow myself down I've limited myself to purchasing them at thrift stores, although I occasionally buy an especially good one at full price), and - yes, I admit it - I love FoodTV. My favorite chefs on the Food Network are Alton Brown, Rachel Ray, Mario Batali, and Giada De Laurentiis. I'm not fond over fakey, over-enthusiastic performance chefs... Emeril drives me up the wall. I appreciate honesty. Of non-celebrity chefs, I've gotta say that that the greatest influences on my cooking have been my mother, Julia Child, and my cooking instructor Chef Gabriel Claycamp at Seattle's Culinary Communion. <br /><br />In the last couple of years I've been typing up all the recipes my grandparents and my mother collected over the years, and am posting them here. Some of them are quite nostalgic and are higher in fat and processed ingredients than recipes I normally collect, but it's really neat to see the different kinds of foods they were interested in... to see them either typewritten oh-so-carefully by my grandfather, in my grandmother's spidery handwriting, or - in some cases - written by my mother years ago in fountain pen ink. It's like time travel. <br /><br />Cooking peeve: food/cooking snobbery. <br /><br />Regarding my black and white icon (which may or may not be the one I'm currently using): it the sea-dragon tattoo that is on the inside of my right ankle. It's also my personal logo.</p>
