Sausage Spinach Bread- frozen bread dough is stuffed with spicy sausage, spinach and cheese and baked until golden and crispy.
Such a fantastic party appetizer.
The bread cooks up wonderfully crispy and a little chewy so it tastes very much like a stromboli.
What Kind Of Sausage?
I use breakfast sausage (the kind in a tube) for this recipe, but you could use Italian sausage instead. I like to use spicy, but you can use regular.
Type Of Dough
I use Bridgford Ready-Dough. It contains 2 frozen loaves in a package. You will need to thaw the dough before using. Follow the instructions for this on the package. It doesn’t take too terribly long to thaw at room temperature or you can place it in the refrigerator a day in advance.
Cut The Recipe In Half
If you just want one loaf of bread, cut the filling amount in half.
Sausage Spinach Bread Recipe Tip
Be sure to squeeze all the water out of the spinach so the bread doesn’t get soggy.
This bread tastes great on its own but you can also dip it in marinara sauce or pizza sauce.
Can be served as a party food or goes great with a salad as a main meal.
