Looking for something new and delicious for Easter breakfast this year?
We may have the right recipe for you! These rolls are a golden yellow color once they are baked. They smell delicious! The special ingredient that makes them moist is healthful for you! We can keep that ingredient a secret just between us.
Succulent Sausage Rolls
- 2 tablespoons yeast
- 1 cup warm water
- 1 cup cooked, mashed squash
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 6 cups flour
- 2 one-pound packages breakfast sausages
1 cup of warm water into which you dissolve 2 tablespoons of yeast(that is 2 packages of yeast if you do not buy it in bulk.)
While the yeast is proofing, combine 1 egg, 2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup cooked and mashed squash. There it is the ingredient you may just want to keep to your self! Mix the above ingredients together well. Then add the proofed yeast. Mix a little. Add the flour 1 cup at a time. First you will stir in the flour. As the mixture becomes thicker, you need to knead. Keep kneading and adding flour (up to 6 cups) until the dough is not too sticky. Make sure you use flour to get all the dough off the sides of the bowl also the spoon, and knead that in as well. The kneading should take about 5-6 minutes. Grease the bowl. Plop the dough into it, turn the dough over in the bowl. Cover the bowl and let it rise in a prewarmed oven of 180 degrees that is off, for one hour.
Start frying the little breakfast sausages. 2 one pound packages should be enough. When they are all fried, cover them with aluminum foil to keep them warm.
When the hour is over, knead the dough a few times. Flour part of your work surface. Take a large handful of dough, place it in the center of the flour and roll it to about an eighth inch thickness. Trim off the ends to make a rough rectangle. Now cut the rectangle into triangles that start out about the width of the sausage and taper down to a point. See the picture above. Wrap a sausage in the triangle of dough starting at the wide end. See the picture below. When it is wrapped, place it on a greased tray. Repeat these steps until you you have all the sausages wrapped.
If you still have dough left, take a small handful and roll it like you would to make a meatball. Place on the tray. When all the dough has been utilized, cover the trays and let rise for 45 minutes. After 30 minutes has elapsed light the oven to 400 degrees. When the oven is at the correct temperature, place rolls in the oven and bake for 10 minutes until lightly browned. Serve warm.
You can store the rolls in a plastic bag in the refrigerator overnight. Reheat the rolls at 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
Take some time this weekend to ponder the questions: Is Jesus Lord of my life? Is Jesus Lord over every area of my Life?
Happy Easter Everyone!
Thank you to my son, Benjamin, who thought of the new idea!
