  • 1 11-ounce can refrigerated French bread dough
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 8 ounces reduced-fat pork sausage cooked and crumbled (such as Jimmy Dean)
  • 3/4 cup 3 ounces shredded Swiss cheese
  • Cooking spray


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Find lengthwise seam in dough. Beginning at seam, gently unroll dough into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 13 x 8-inch rectangle; brush with butter, leaving a 1/2-inch border.
  • Combine sage, salt, and sausage. Sprinkle sausage mixture evenly over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border; top with cheese. Starting with a long side, roll dough up, jelly-roll fashion; press seam to seal (do not seal ends of roll).
  • Cut 1 (1/2-inch-thick) crosswise slice from each end; discard. Slice roll crosswise into 12 (1/2-inch-thick) pieces; arrange in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 350° for 28 minutes or until golden.
