This past holiday season in December, my mother-in-law whom is one of my best friends told me how much she loved how I would teeter into the kitchen during stressful times and make something. Honestly, I never realized I did that, but two months later, I can say that I do cook, chop, bake, mix, slurp, and knead my stress away. Snow fell again today. The upside was an early homecoming for my dear husband. I was also able to make this recipe:
Sausage Bread, serves 4
1 loaf of risen but uncooked bread (I use the recipe for white bread from The Homemade Pantry: 101 Foods You Can Stop Buying and Start Making by ; I have used the frozen bread loaves as well with much success.)
1 lb. sausage, cooked through
1 cup shredded cheddar
4 tsp. Parmesan or manchego
Garlic powder to taste
Preheat the oven to 375. Combine sausage, eggs, cheddar, Parmesan, and garlic powder together in a bowl. Set aside. Meanwhile, roll the bread flat on floured surface. Spread the sausage mixture over the bread. Roll the bread over the mix and close the ends. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake in oven for 40-45 minutes. Cut to serve.
My mother made this recipe about every week. She would use shredded chicken or ground beef as well. She served this with sour cream as a condiment and a green salad.
