Breakfast Stromboli

For some time (in all probability near a yr), each Friday was “Home made Pizza Evening” at our home. We’d all the time have a ball of Entire Meals pizza dough stashed within the freezer ready to be was no matter creation we dreamed up. It was an evening that John, Lily, and I regarded ahead to all week… till I acquired in a rut of creating plain previous cheese pizza week after week and all of us grew uninterested in the monotony.

I just lately acquired bit by the pizza bug as soon as once more… however this time within the type of stromboli. I made a pepperoni stromboli, and pizza was as soon as once more an enormous hit in our home!

In an effort to keep away from falling into the identical rut as final time, I brainstormed totally different filling concepts for stromboli, and was immediately impressed to make a breakfast model.

We frequently have breakfast for dinner, which I really like due to how simple and fast it’s to organize. It’s additionally a meal I look ahead to practically each week as a result of I not often eat eggs within the morning.

So for this stromboli, I cooked up some breakfast sausage, scrambled some eggs, and layered them on pizza dough with cheddar cheese, rolled the entire shebang up, then baked it to a golden brown and served it with ketchup.

I by no means ate ketchup with eggs as a child, nevertheless it’s one in all Lily’s favourite condiments, so I’ve grown accustomed to having fun with the 2 collectively.

Now you may definitely indulge on this stromboli as your morning meal – and it could be excellent for a weekend brunch – however for me it’s extra a breakfast-for-dinner sort meal.

No matter what time of day you make it, you’re positively going to like this breakfast stromboli!

Components (1 stromboli)

  • 1 (1 lb) ball pizza dough, at room temperature (my go-to is the pizza dough from Entire Meals)
  • flour for rolling out dough
  • 1 lb breakfast sausage (if nonetheless in hyperlinks, take away from the casings)
  • 6 massive eggs, ideally natural
  • 1 1/2 cups freshly grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

If you happen to haven’t already, take away sausage from casings and place in a big nonstick skillet set over medium-high warmth. Cook dinner sausage, breaking it up with a wood spoon, till browned and cook dinner by. When totally cooked, take away from skillet utilizing a slotted spoon, and let drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Scale back range warmth to medium. Wipe out the skillet utilizing paper towels, leaving about 1 Tbsp of sausage grease within the skillet. If the sausage you used is lean and there isn’t a lot grease left, add in a Tbsp of butter or oil.

Whisk eggs in a big mixing bowl, and pour into skillet. Scramble eggs for for 3-5 minutes, or till set (you need the eggs to be totally cooked as a result of if they’re undercooked, they’ll launch liquid into the stromboli throughout baking).

On a big clear work floor, scatter a little bit of flour. Roll out the pizza dough as skinny as you possibly can right into a rectangle (if the dough is simply too thick, you threat the middle not cooking totally). Evenly scatter the grated cheese over the floor, (leaving a 1 inch border all the way in which round), adopted by cooked sausage and eggs.

Beginning at an extended finish of the rectangle, roll up the dough jelly roll-style. Pinch closed the ends and the seam.

Bake for 20 minutes or till golden brown.

Take away from oven and let sit for at the least 5 minutes earlier than reducing into slices.
