Stuffed Bread1-2 Cups of Pasta Sauce Shredded Cheese (your preference) Diced vegetables (peppers, onions, green onions, broccoli, mushrooms, etc.) 2 eggs (whisk thoroughly) *If it's not Friday, Diced Sausage (or choose your favorite meat) Directions Copyright 2019 Danielle Heckenkamp.

- Roll out bread dough on a floured surface. Make sure it isn’t too thin, otherwise it will rip. If it is too thick, the dough won’t bake thoroughly.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Add a layer of pasta sauce to the rolled dough. Don’t over-do the sauce, otherwise it will soak through the dough and leak out. (This will especially happen if the dough is too thin).
- Shred your favorite cheese and layer the pasta sauce. I have a love for mozzarella and goat cheese.
- If adding meat, layer it on now. I add Portuguese Linguica (mild) or Chouriço (spicy). You can add any meat, or choose to go meatless.
- Place the cut-up vegetables evenly over the meat and one more layer of cheese.
- Begin rolling the dough lengthwise into the shape of a log and close the edges by stretching the dough over the ends. Lay the rolled dough on a cookie sheet with parchment paper. You will want to place the dough directly on the seam of the log.
- Beat two eggs and brush the top of the dough.
- Let the dough sit for about 20 minutes.
- Bake the stuffed bread for 30-40 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Let it cool for about 10 minutes and cut into slices.
