Fast Food Remake – Sausage, Egg and Cheese Bread

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Bread

This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes.  It’s a little strange in that it’s a cross between a quick bread and a biscuit.  The taste is very similar to a sausage, egg and cheese biscuit from one of those fast food places, only much better for you!  It makes two large loaves, so it serves a lot of people – which is a good thing in my family!  You can also add just about any ingredient to the filling.  Spinach with feta cheese is especially nice.  Another idea is to bake these in mini muffin tins, but be sure to reduce the cooking time!

Sausage, Egg and Cheese Bread

4 eggs

1 cup water

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon salt

5 teaspoons baking powder

4 cups flour

3 eggs, beaten

12 ounces cooked bulk sausage, cooled (your favorite kind, I use a breakfast sausage made by our local family run grocery store)

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella

1 cup shredded provolone

1/4 cup grated romano cheese

salt and fresh ground pepper

2 tablespoons melted butter

In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, water, milk and salt.  Mix the baking powder into the flour and gradually add to the eggs.  The batter will be very soft.  In another bowl, mix cooled sausage with 3 beaten eggs, the cheeses, a pinch of salt and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper.  Place 1/4 of the batter into a lightly greased loaf pan.  Top with half the sausage mixture.  Spoon 1/4 of the batter on top of the sausage and spread to cover.  Repeat for the second loaf.  Drizzle tops with melted butter.  Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 40 minutes, until cooked through and lightly browned on the top.

I love this recipe because it serves a lot of people and it tastes great!  The bulk of the cost is in the sausage and  cheese – it totals around $5.00 for two loaves.  Not bad since the full recipe serves 10 (2 slices each)!  Ten sausage, egg and cheese biscuits cost $15.00! (at $1.50 each) To me that is a HUGE savings, not only in money, but in health!

Do you have any fast food remakes that your family enjoys?  Do you find them to be less or more expensive? I’d love to hear from you and hope you give this recipe a try!

  1. My recipe is similar but it calls for half the amount of ingredients by cup (so do what you will with this information!). Using a 12 cup muffin tin, fill each tin with scant 1/4 mix. Pre-heat oven to 425, pop in the muffin pan, and then reduce the oven to 400 degrees. By heating up and then lowering the temp, you will force the batter to dome up (and look like store-bought muffins!).

    My kids like this recipe as it is easier to hold. I like it because I can control portion sizes.

    HTH!
