Sausage And Cheese Bread


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F and lightly grease a cookie sheet.
  2. On a floured surface, roll out your dough into the shape of a rectangle. It will be approximately 20 x 16 inches. Sprinkle Jimmy Dean Sausage Crumbles on top of the dough in an even layer. Next, sprinkle Romano cheese on top of the sausage. (Save about 2 tablespoons to top the bread.)
  3. Starting at the top of the dough, roll the dough into the shape of a long rectangle. Then shape it into a horseshoe to fit on your cookie sheet. Place the dough carefully on a greased cookie sheet.
  4. Brush your egg white on top of the dough and close the ends. Sprinkle the remaining Romano cheese on top of the dough.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, until the dough is a nice golden brown.
  6. Let it cool for a few minutes and then cut it and serve.
