We ate in our Sunday School Class room this past Sunday. Who would have thunk it??? Especially so close after Thanksgiving! But we combined our November and December birthdays and had a party! We old-timers know how to party. And since I had seen this floating around on the net I wanted to try it. But I kicked mine up a notch….you know, get us old geezers going….no Geritol for our class….just make a recipe and substitute with some hot sausage and you got it made!
this is so much easier than making individual sausage balls, and to me, is so much more moister. Try it and see what you think. Serve with your favorite soup, Make it for Breakfast, Eat it for tailgating or a brunch. Or have it with a spot of tea. The possibilities are endless. Our Sunday School teacher was pulling people out of the hallways to come and get a taste! He’s a character, anyway!
Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and also hope you will give this a try!
Sausage & Cheese Bread
1 lb pork sausage (I bought the hot sausage – the class loved it!)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (use the grated kind in the cheese section – or grate fresh – so much better)
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon Texas Pete Hot sauce (I still used this for flavor in mine even though I used hot sausage)
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
Dash of red pepper flakes (I left this out with the hot sausage for this class – I would use it if I use regular sausage, though)
2 cups Bisquick baking mix
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup mayonnaise (I know some don’t care for mayonnaise but you can’t tell it is in here – it is for moisture – use it – you won’t be able to tell it’s in the recipe – I promise!)
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with cooking spray. (I actually used two small loaf pans and have frozen one of my loafs! yea me!)
Crumble sausage into a skillet of choice and cook with chopped onions until brown. Drain on paper towels and cool.
In a large bowl, combine egg, cheeses, hot sauce, salt and red pepper flakes; mix well.
Add baking mix, milk, and mayonnaise. Stir.
To the mixture, add the sausage and onions. Mix just until combined.
Pour into loaf pan(s) and bake for 45 to 50 minutes (may take only about 40 minutes if you use smaller loaf pans).
Let rest in pan for 10 minutes. Turn out to plate, slice and serve.
Let me know how you enjoy! And, oh, by the way……..watch the blog as there will be some quick give-a-ways for Christmas. Get ready!
