The Sunday Breakfast Smackdown--Or Brackfiss, Depending On Where You Hang Your Hat...
Required Ingredients:

1 lb. Jimmy Dean HOT Sausage
1/2 c. Finely Chopped Onion
2 c. Grated Sharp Cheddar
1 pkg. Pillsbury French Bread Loaf
1 Egg, Lightly Beaten

preheat Oven to 350 degrees

Brown Sausage meat and onion in heavy bottomed skillet, drain fat. Let sausage cool. Unroll Pillsbury bread dough onto wax paper that has been lightly sprayed with PAM cooking spray. Layer crumbled sausage meat and onion on top of bread dough, leaving a 1 inch perimeter on all sides. Top sausage meat with cheddar cheese. Roll as you would a jelly roll, tucking the ends in as you go. Place seam side down on heavy cookie sheet and brush with lightly beaten egg. Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until bread is toasty brown and sounds hollow when knocked upon.

Let sit for 5 minutes, slice and serve and you have yourself a mean sausage bread that is a hit with one and all. Or, you can take it up to the next level, as I did for brunch yesterday for The Hubs--

Slice 4 pieces of sausage bread about as thick as a hearty piece of toast and place on plate, forming circles of two slices each. Top each slice with a nice fat, freshly fried egg that has been peppered liberally with fresh ground black pepper.

Beckon whomever you have prepared this for to the table, in my case, calling The Hubs repeatedly in from the garage where he was working on his GODFORSAKEN, BLEEPITY-BLEEP-BLEEPIN CAR STEREO instead of out golfing with his beloved and never demanding, always aiming to please wife--ahem--wha? Oh, yes--breakfast.

As I was saying, beckon your crowd to the table and serve alongside some freshly sliced tomatoes, a cuppa joe, some freshly squeezed OJ or whatever accoutrement's you so desire.

Let me show you The Hubs preferred method of consumption. He takes this:


Oh, don't be shy. Come a little closer so you can actually SEE it!




Yummy, right? Mmm-mmm-good. Anyways, he takes that and douses it liberally with Tabasco sauce, like this:


I don't know how the hell he doesn't just torch his mouth to smithereens, but he is wont to dump Tabasco sauce all over everything. I've stopped taking it personally. Since it was definitely noon somewhere, even if not in OUR time zone, he accompanied his brunch with this:


And that, my friends, is what I have dubbed "Rednecks Benedict".

Try it, I can pretty much guarantee it will go down in history as a favorite. There is something very satisfying about it.

Considering how unfriendly it is to the old ticker though, I wouldn't make it TOO often!

86 the beer and the tabasco sauce and I would be all over that meal.

And I would probably use mild sausage cuz I'm a total weenie. But that looks like one fine meal.

Oh and also exchange the tomato slices for bacon slices. haha.
