I have a wonderful friend that made a fantastic 
stuffed sausage bread. She would bring us
a hot loaf of her bread for a treat when we worked together
about ten years ago. We fancied ourselves part of the
Ya'-Ya's...me being Vivianne and her being Teensy!
Over the course of time,
I created my own version of her bread and believe me....
the guys in my family....LOVE THIS! 

1 (1 pound) loaf of frozen bread dough
1 lb. of sage sausage
1 cup of finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped green pepper
1 t. garlic powder
3 T. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t. black pepper
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup of shredded white cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
Cornmeal for dusting 

Thaw the bread dough and allow to rise.
Brown the sausage, onion, green pepper until 
sausage is browned and crumbly.
Blend in the seasonings and mushroom soup.

Roll the bread dough on a prepared surface
which has been lightly sprinkled with cornmeal.
Roll the dough in rectangle.
Spoon the sausage mixture down the middle of the bread,
then roll up into a log shape.
Brush with beaten egg.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 30 minutes
until golden brown. 
Slice and serve while warm.
I serve this with a beautiful ice cold wedge salad!


  1. Oh boy! The 'boys' in our family would sure love this. Would you believe I have never bought any of that frozen bread dough? What is WRONG with me (don't answer that). I used to have a bread machine but it gave up the ghost so I haven't made homemade bread in a long time. This sounds like a perfect winter treat. xo Diana

    1. I love using frozen bread dough Diana....makes wonderful dinner rolls, pizza crust and this delicious sausage bread! Hope y'all try it and love it! My guys sure do! Big hugs from Texas!

  2. I think I know some boys who would enjoy this and especially if I disguise the onions. We all have our tricks...

    1. I know exactly what you mean Vee. If you use a sweet yellow onion and saute with the sausage and/or ground beef, it helps alot! Hope you try this and love it!

  3. Stuffed breads make a meal! I can do this with veggie sausage...thank you for the recipe!

    1. Yes Susan....easily can interchange what ingredient you wish. I sometimes add mushrooms, green pepper and use tomato soup. Hope you like it! Hugs!

  4. I know the boys and I would enjoy your yummy sausage bread, Betsy. I bet your kitchen smells so good as these beauties are baking. Have a happy afternoon. ♥

    1. Hope you try this Martha Ellen! I know they will enjoy it! Have a lovely afternoon!

  5. so funny that you mentioned the Ya-Ya's....my mom was a part of that gang! and I went to high school with the author of the book! and I was one of the original yaya fan club members! and because of that, I hosted 28 women from all over the world for 4 days at my lake house that had become friends because of an online book club!!
    Oh....and did I mention that not one of us had ever met face to face until they walked up to our lakehouse??!! and every single one of us got along tremendously and have remained friends for 15 yrs!!!
    crazy world we live in!!!

    1. What a great story! Can't believe that movie was so long ago. We loved it! I know you must have shared a wonderful time together!

  6. I was going to say that although it looks good my husband and I could not eat it. He does not like sausage and we are both allergic to milk and cheese. But then I read the comments and saw you could change it to basically any ingredients you want. So now I'm going to give it a try with things we can eat.


I so love receiving your thoughts and comments. I also hope you found something that made you smile.
