Friday Feast ~ Sausage Roll


Welcome to Friday Feast! I really should re-name this recipe I’m sharing today, since it came from my sister, Vici. I first tasted this delicious meal when I lived up in Washington. So good! Serve it with a salad, or make several for game day, if you have a crowd.

It’s not as difficult as you may think–the prep is easy, but it will take a few hours.

My sister’s looked far better than this one, but it’s been a few years. Blame it on the football game I was watching for the reason of my odd shaped overlapping pieces of dough.


½ pound spicy Italian Pork Sausage, or Turkey Sausage

1/3 cup coarsely shredded carrot

¼ cup chopped onion

1 8oz. tub of cream cheese with chives and onions

½- 10oz. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained

1/3 cup chopped toasted pecans

1-16oz. loaf frozen whole wheat or white bread dough, thawed. (I pull mine from the freezer and place in the fridge the night before)

2 teaspoons melted butter

German style mustard

Filling: In a large skillet, cook Italian sausage, carrot, and onions until sausage is brown and onions are tender. Remove from heat and drain any fat. Blend in cream cheese. Stir in spinach and pecans.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 12 x 9 inch rectangle. Carefully transfer to a greased baking sheet. Spread the filling lengthwise down the center, leaving 2 ½-3 inches from the edge. Cut 3-inch wide strips on top and bottom, but not on the end. Moisten strips with butter and overlap. Cover with cloth and let rise until double—approx. 45 minutes.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 25-30 minutes. Serve with a German style mustard.
