Sausage Stuffed Roll

The guys were over working again and lucky for them school was out and daycare was closed for the day. They have been such good sports with all the kids around all the time when they are working. The kids are so curious about what they are doing all the time, the babies are constantly crawling over to see what is going on and the older ones have a million questions. Pair that with the screaming and yelling that goes with a noisy daycare I'm surprised they haven't both put their ear plugs in yet! :) Anyhow, daycare was closed and the hubs and I took our kids on a surprise trip to the water park. This meant that they were on their own for lunch and I set out this meal, hoping that it was a good one. From the almost NONE that was left when we got home, I am assuming that it tasted all right! :) They did leave me a sample piece so I can assure you that it is worth making! :)

Sausage Stuffed Roll
(recipe found at Nourishing Hearts)

1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
1/2 pound italian sausage, cooked
5 ounces package frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/8 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Let dough rise to double the size. Meanwhile cook sausage, when done set aside. In another bowl combine spinach, cheese, oregano and garlic. Roll out dough. Place meat and spinach mixture in loaf. Gently roll together and pinch closed. Wrap in plastic wrap and then in tin foil. Freeze immediately, if desired.

To prepare: thaw completely and bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. Let rest for 5-10 minutes before cutting.
