Breakfast Stromboli



I don't know what mornings are like in your house but in my house, they can be a little chaotic.  There's a lot of "Get out of bed. Get up now. It's time to get up. You have to get up now." going on around this house.  (And that's just to get myself out of bed at 6:00. - hehe)  Seriously though, as we get farther into the school year, it gets even harder to get the kids out of bed. 

I would like to make a warm breakfast for everyone before they head out the door every morning but some days that just isn't realistic.  Since some of our favorite breakfast foods are too time consuming to make at 6:00 in the morning, we've designated Sunday nights as "breakfast for dinner" nights.  We pull out our favorite breakfast recipes that we don't have time to make on a back to school morning.

I tried this breakfast stromboli recipe from thespiffycookie.com on a Sunday night but quite honestly, it's easy enough to make on a school morning.

BREAKFAST STROMBOLI 

Ingredients: 

1 tube pizza dough
1 lb. sausage
4 eggs, plus one more beaten for an egg wash
2 Tbsp milk
Pinch salt and pepper
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions:




Preheat oven to 500 degrees. Line large rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper or spray lightly with non-stick cooking spray.  In a large skillet, brown your sausage.










Once cooked all the way through, transfer to a bowl and cover to keep warm. Keep oil rendered from sausage in pan.  In a large bowl, whisk together two eggs, milk, and a pinch of salt and pepper.









Back to the skillet with the oil, reduce the heat to medium-low and pour the eggs in. Lightly scramble until cooked through, about 8 minutes.





Spread pizza dough out on baking sheet to be approximately 10×16 inches.









Leave a 3×16 rectangle of plain dough along one of the edges and on the rest, sprinkle with the cheese,












followed by the eggs,














and then sausage.


Roll up dough, jelly roll style.


Brush the entire stromboli with egg wash.

 
Gently cut slats in the top of the dough every 1-2 inches.

 
Bake 8-10 minutes or until bubbly and golden.


Remove from oven, cool 5 minutes and slice into pieces.


These were really delicious.  We ate ALMOST the entire loaf of stromboli for dinner.  (It was that good.)  You could definitely change this up and add bell pepper, green chilies or other vegetables that strike your fancy.



Ciao!
