In stark contrast to Thursday’s whole food version of Toaster Strudels, this cheesy sausage bread has all of the bad stuff that I usually try to avoid. But damn, it’s tasty.
The point of this breakfast (or brunch, lunch, snack or dinner) is that 1. Its quick and easy to make 2. It satisfies the craving for salty fatty food that I almost always have when I had a few drinks the night before.
The hubster and I stayed up late talking and having cocktails on the deck. If you were outside in the DFW area last night then you would have felt the “cold front” that came in and brought the temp down from 105 (!) to a super comfortable perfect for football watching 85 degrees. It was fabulous.
Anyway, that brings me to this. Breakfast in a pinch when you don’t feel like doing anything but sit on the couch all day and eat junk food.
Start out with a tube of breakfast sausage. I use the hot flavor and then mix in maple syrup once it’s cooked. Just cook it through and set it aside to cool.
You’ll need two cans of those refrigerated breadsticks. Lay out a piece of plastic wrap or parchment paper and put the breadsticks side by side. Press them into each other a bit to seal the seams but try not to flatten them too much.
Add your favorite grated cheese. Then lightly salt and pepper. I also added a little garlic powder.
Top with sausage.
Roll it up using the plastic wrap or parchment like you’re rolling sushi. Just not too tight! You want it to be fluffy.
Now put this bad boy in a 350 degree oven (without the plastic please)…
.. until it’s brownish and smells yummy.
