INSTRUCTIONS

  • Heat oven to 350°F.

  • Add just enough Cheese to cover the stuffing. Set the rest of the stuffing and cheese aside
  • Lift one edge of the foil and roll the sausage around the stuffing, making a loaf.
  • Lay the bacon on top of the loaf with a small gap between each strip while tucking any loose ends under the loaf.
  • Seal the seam and ends with your fingers. Pat it into an even thickness.
  • Place the loaf, still wrapped in foil, on a baking sheet or into a loaf pan.
  • Bake for 45 to 60 minutes (Internal temp of 160°F). The Bacon should be done.
  • While it is baking, add the Olive Oil and the remaining Bell Peppers and Onions to a frying pan and saute’ until soft.
  • Slice the loaf between Bacon strips and add the extra cooked Veggies over each slice.
