Easy Breakfast Braid
 
Ingredients:
  • 1 (13.8-ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust dough
  • 1 Tbsp.  olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 4 oz. spicy chicken sausage (or other sausage), chopped
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup (2 oz.) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped seeded jalapeño peppers
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
Method:
Preheat oven to 425°.
Unroll dough onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; pat into a 15 x 10–inch rectangle.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sausage; cook 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Stir in eggs; cook for 1 1/2 minutes or until set (while continuing to stir). Remove from heat.
Sprinkle Monterey Jack lengthwise down center of dough, leaving about a 2 1/2-inch border on each side. Spoon egg mixture evenly over cheese. Sprinkle cheddar over egg mixture; top with jalapeño peppers.
Make 2-inch-long diagonal cuts about 1 inch apart on both sides of dough to within 1/2 inch of filling using a sharp knife or kitchen shears. Arrange strips over filling, alternating strips diagonally over filling. Press ends under to seal. Brush with egg white. Bake at 425° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut crosswise into slices.
