Sausage Bread Vs Stromboli

I posted this recipe because I made it for our Christmas Party last week. In the future I plan to take pictures of the process and product of each dish but for now this will have to do.

I have very fond memories of my Aunt Ginny's cooking. Growing up our families we very close as her daughters were that same as me and my sisters. Our back yards connected so it made easy access to her kitchen . When ever she made Sausage bread we always did our best to invite ourselves to dinner! She has perfected so many recipes, I loved staying for dinner for just about anything she cooked (except when Uncle Tony made venison - but thankfully I've since learned to enjoy that too). Thanks to the wonderful Facebook I was able to ask her to send me the recipe and she sent it right away.

The preparation for this took a bit of time and energy but I think it had more to do the pending holiday more than any thing else. I had to make trips to three different grocery stores before I finally found Pizza dough, apparently its a big seller come Christmas. Then I couldn't find the roasted peppers and onions to save my life so I finally settled on a jar of roasted red peppers. I bought Pepperidge Farm sausage but next time I plan to use fresh sausage from the butcher because I think it will have better flavor and easier to remove the skin before browning.

The process of making this recipe was not hard at all and turned out delicious! Everyone kept telling me how good the Stromboli was  . . . . "you mean sausage bread" I replied to each compliment. No matter what you call it, its tasty!

This is defiantly a recipe that I will make again. It was relatively easy and a big hit. There were about 18 people at the party and I doubled the recipe and made two. Due to the amount of food options, there ended up being a lot of left overs so for future I'd only make one for a party and two if it was a main course for dinner.

Go ahead and give it a try - I gaurentee you'll love it. Be sure to let me know how it turns out!
