Sausage Roll Ups: less than 80 cents per serving

My mom used to make a version of these that we all loved. I usually make these with ground italian sausage, but you could use any combination of meat and cheese you have available. These are a great way to use up leftovers! 

1. Make your favorite bread recipe. Let the dough rise once and punch it back down.

2. Mix together 1 8oz package of cream cheese, 1/2 c. salsa, 1 lb ground sausage (not links) and 2 c. shredded mozarella.

3. Roll a portion of the dough into a large rectangle, as if you were making cinnamon rolls.

4. Spread the meat mixture over the rectangle of dough and roll up along the shortest edge into a long log.

5. Use a serrated knife and a low-pressure, back and forth sawing motion to gently slice your log into coin-shaped rolls. Place them on a greased baking sheet and let rise until doubles in size, then bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and done all the way through.



Substitute cubed ham and swiss cheese for the sausage and mozarella
My kids make these with pepperoni and mozarella. They omit the sausage, spread the cream cheese mixture, then spread a layer of pepperoni over the dough. They make a great snack and even travel well in a lunch box.
