Sausage Egg Breakfast Roll

Whole Wheat Sausage Egg Breakfast Wrap
Every once in a while breakfast simply needs to consist of sausage, eggs and cheese.  I am a proponent of eating healthy but I am also a proponent of having some balance as well.  This recipe mostly falls on the 'balance' side of that idea.

This recipe really is just a fun way to take our favorite omelet ingredients and wrapping them with a warm and delicious whole wheat crust.  You should feel free to switch up and add peppers, spinach, fresh basil, etc to customize this making it your own.

Crust Ingredients

2.5 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon honey 
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon yeast
1 teaspoon salt ( garlic salt is good )
1 tablespoon dried basil
7/8 cup of warm water

Crust Directions

Combine the warm water and yeast.  Allow water and yeast to sit for 5 minutes.  After yeast has activated combine all ingredients in a larger mixing bowl.  Mix this together until you are able to kneed it out on your counter.  You should kneed the dough for several minutes.  Roll dough out with a rolling pin into a long narrow strip roughly 10-12 inches wide.

Crust rolled out with egg
Filling Ingredients

6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
2 slices american cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried basil
3/4 pound sausage
1 teaspoon butter 

Filling Instructions

Beat eggs, milk and basil together in a bowl.  Melt butter in a frying pan on a medium low heat.  Add egg mixture and cook until eggs are not runny, don't cook this too much past this point as it will also get cooked again in the oven.  In a separate pan brown up your sausage.

Putting it all together

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread cooked eggs and sausage evenly along the length of the crust.  Cover with remaining Parmesan and American cheese.  Make sure you leave room on both sides of the filling ( as in picture above ).  Pull sides of crust to the top of the filling and pinch sides together.  Your ultimate goal is to have a nice long roll that completely encloses the filling.

Place roll on cookie sheet and bake in oven for 20 minutes.

That's it!
