Braided Sausage Bread

     I love breakfast for dinner. Actually, I love breakfast for any time of day. There is just something about sausage, eggs, or bacon. That is just my kind of food, I guess. A couple of weeks ago, I decided that we should have breakfast for dinner once  a week. We don't always get to have a good hot breakfast during the week, so if we have it at dinner, I can still eat the foods I love.
     I loved how this turned out. It reminded me of my favorite bakery's sausage rolls, but without the time and commitment of a yeast roll. Actually, for the amount needed you need to have two packages of crescent rolls, but for some reason I only bought one. So we had one sausage braid and one phyllo wrapped roll. Both were delicious, but I just hate working with phyllo. I'm pretty sure when package in my freezer is gone, I'll never buy it again. That's for another post though.

1-lb turkey sausage
4 cups mozzarella cheese
1 tsp hot sauce
1 Tbl parsley flakes
1 egg
2 pkgs crescent rolls

  • Brown sausage. Mix in cheese, hot sauce, parsley, and egg. Stir and heat until cheese is melted.
  • Unroll both packages of crescent rolls and press together making a long rectangle. (If your baking sheet isn't long enough, make two shorter rectangles instead) On the long edges of the rectangle, make two inch slices every two inches. These slices will make the top braid.
  • Place sausage mixture down the middle of the rectangle. 
  • Criss-cross your sliced edges to make a braid. 
  • Bake according to crescent roll package directions.


  1. Oh my! This looks wonderful!!!

  2. Must be a week end breakfast thing. I couldn't see myself going to that effort in the morning for breakfast before work.
