Hot Sausage and Mozzarella Roll

Hot Sausage and Mozzarella Roll created by Galley Wench

This is, hands-down, my favourite dish in my whole life! I can't pin point why, it just is. I used to love watching Mom prepare the dough. She can really work wonders with yeast dough. I eat mine with ketchup on top. This could easily be altered to fit into any ones tastes: Use your favourite sausages, add spices to the meat, add spices to the dough, sprinkle spices on top of the dough... endless opportunities! **Plan ahead, the sausage needs to cool. Chilling time for the sausage is not included.

ingredients

directions

  • Thaw dough in refrigerator overnight or room temperature until just soft enough to yield to pressure of a fingerprint. (I doubled recipe #28008 and used it with success).
  • Meanwhile prepare filling, place sausage and onion in a large skillet, cook 10 minutes stirring often breaking meat up with the side of a spoon. (If the meat doesn't want to break up -- convince it!).
  • Pat out 1 piece of dough to flatten on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 14x9 inch (or there abouts) rectangle. (Turn dough so that the long side is directly in front of you.) Sprinkle half of the cooled sausage, cheeses and parsley on the dough, leaving an inch or two from the far edge. Roll up dough, starting with the long side, enclosing like a jelly roll.
  • Transfer roll, seam side down, to a lightly greased cookie sheet and tuck ends under.
  • Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  • Brush the tops of both loaves liberally with egg mixture, sprinkle with sesame seeds if you wish. (Mom always did).
  • Bake in a moderate oven, 375°, for 20-30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
  • Remove loaves to a serving platter and cut into 1 1/2 inch slices and serve.

    This is a very good recipe. I used refrigerated pizza dough and cut the recipe in half. I used hot italian turkey sausage and added some minced garlic and bell peppers to the filling. When assembling the roll I layered marinara sauce, italian cheese and the meat mixture. I then served it with a side of marinara. I have also made this using a beef and onion mixture and cheddar cheese, which I served with ketchup and mustard. Either way it is delicious. Very easy to change to suit your taste. Thanks for a great recipe.

    Made this last night for dinner. We used refridgerated pizza dough (which was too thin to roll I thought..or maybe it was not cold enough when I went to roll it) and ground sweet italian sausage. It didn't look pretty coming out of the oven, but there were no leftovers (between 5 of us) and both kids and DH said they would eat it again, so it's a keeper in our book! Maybe next time I'll try fresh dough. Thanks for sharing.

    I had a little trouble rolling out the dough, but after the fight it turned out great. I wonder if using refrigerator pizza dough would work.

    BIG smooches to you for posting this recipe, Saturn, and a big, ol' hug to your mama for creating it! This was fabulous! It could be tweaked a hundred different ways and all of them would be great. I used Recipe #142788 for the dough, spread on some bruschetta before adding the turkey sausage and cheese, and also sauteed onions, mushrooms and garlic for an extra layer. I made only one loaf since just 3 of us would devour it. We were looking for more! Just awesome. Thanks!

    Wonderful recipe - used canned refrigerated pizza dough & ground mild sausage, as well as caraway seeds in place of sesame...and oh so good! We will definitely be making this very often as it was so quick, easy, and tasty! (Oh and we forgot the parmesan cheese and it was still wonderful!!)
