Holiday Breakfast Braid

No recipe image available.Festive holiday breakfast bread braid filled with scrambled eggs, cooked sausage and cheese.

Recipe Ingredients:

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon minced onion
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 tablespoon active yeast
1 tablespoon butter, softened
1 cup warm water
8 large eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 cups turkey or pork sausage, browned
2/3 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
2/3 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the bread recipe*. Layer the first 7 ingredients in a food processor and pour in 1 cup warm water (110°F / 45°C). Knead dough with food processor for several minutes. Add a small amount of flour, if needed, until dough forms a nice ball. Place on a floured board.
  3. Next, brown the sausage. Then, beat the eggs and milk together and scramble in a non-stick pan until firm.
  4. Roll bread out into a 10 x 16-inch rectangle.
  5. Place scrambled eggs down the center of the dough. Top with mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, and then top with sausage. Using a pizza wheel, cut dough in from both sides at an angle about 1-inch apart. Next, braid the strips over the center ingredients to form a loaf.
  6. Bake for around 20 minutes or until it is a nice golden color. Slice and serve.

Makes 12 servings.

*You may substitute the bread with 2 loaves of frozen dough, thawed, or 2 tubes of refrigerated pizza dough.
