One day, we were having company for brunch. I wanted to make something quick and easy (always) but also wanted to include all our breakfast favorites. Sometimes it's just too hard to make a bunch of different things AND have it all done at the same time. That's when I thought of this recipe. Why not make a breakfast roll? The breakfast sausage roll is very similar to my pepperoni rolls but perfect for an early morning snack.

Breakfast sausage rolls require a little prep (making the sausage, preparing the scrambled eggs), but by the time you are actually ready to serve it, your cleanup can be done. I use Rhodes dough. Simple and delicious. I typically let it rise for about 4 hours before I use it. If I am using it in the early morning, I leave it out the night before. I grease my counter top, lay the dough, and then grease the top of the dough. Finally, I cover it with Saran Wrap and a dish towel.

This is so so yummy. I think Ken is addicted. I can't wait to hear what you think about it.

Serves   : 4-6
Prep   : 20 Minutes
Bake   : 30 Minutes
Preheat Oven   : 350 Degrees

1 roll   Rhodes dough, thawed and permitted to rise at least 4 hours
1/2 package    Bob Evans breakfast sausage, the kind in a roll, browned and drained
3    Scrambled Eggs
1 cup   Cheddar cheese, shredded

Let Rhodes dough thaw and rise for at least 4 hours.
Prepare scrambled eggs.
Brown sausage in a skillet with 1/2 cup of water. Use spoon to crumble into small pieces.
Grease your hands with Crisco, form the dough into a ball and lightly grease the entire outer surface of the ball.
Gently work dough to spread out, be careful not to make dough too thin, it will tear and it's hard to repair. Work from the center.
Layer eggs, sausage and shredded cheese onto dough.
Prepare to roll by folding in right and left sides then grasping side of dough closest to you.
Gently roll then seal ends by pinching dough together then using a fork to present dough together.
Place on a baking sheet, use fork to place holes into top of the roll.
Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Slice and serve. Don't worry if it blows apart, it's still yummy.
