Sausage Breakfast Rolls

Usually my breakfast consists of whole wheat toast smothered in natural peanut butter and a little cinnamon sprinkled on top.  It's yummy, but can get pretty boring.  So every once in a while I want something a little heartier.....and with lots of cheese.

You can find variations of these rolls just about anywhere.  Some use different breads, some add onions, and some use exotic cheeses.  And by exotic, I mean a cheese that doesn't come conveniently pre-shredded in a bag for you!

Start by flouring a flat working surface.  Unroll the french bread roll and let it sit for a few minutes. It will roll out a little easier as it gets warmer.

While the dough is sitting out, start frying the sausage.  Let drain on a paper towel to soak up some of the grease.  Don't worry if some of the sausage is still a little pink.  It will cook in the oven.

Now turn your attention back to the dough.  Roll out till the dough is about 2 feet by 1 1/2 feet.

Layer the sausage and cheese on top of the dough.  Cut off the top and bottom if you would like before you start to roll it up.  If you don't mind a doughy middle, then leave the extra on.

Start rolling the dough by the long edge.

Cut the roll into 1 inch sections and place in a greased baking sheet.

I divide the rolls into two pans and cook just until the cheese is slightly gooey.  Let the pans cool, cover with tinfoil, and throw in the refrigerator.  When you wake up the morning, preheat your oven to 350 degrees while you are throwing on your makeup or fixing your hair.  Let the rolls cook until golden brown and enjoy your hearty cheesy breakfast!
