Ingredients

2/3
cup water
3
cups Original Bisquick™ mix
20
oz pork sausage (about 2 1/2 cups)
1
cup diced apple
1/4
cup chopped onion
1
cup dried cranberries
1
teaspoon cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon nutmeg
1/4
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Maple syrup, if desired
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray large baking sheet with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix water and Bisquick; knead until dough is smooth. Cover and set aside.
  • 2 In 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat, cook and stir pork sausage until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Add apple and onion; cook about 1 minute. Drain. Return to skillet; stir in cranberries, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
  • 3 Place Bisquick dough on flat surface; roll the dough to rectangle, 10x14 inches. Spoon sausage mixture onto center of dough; sprinkle with cheese. Pat mixture to within 1-inch of edges of dough. Brush edges with water. Starting with long side, roll dough over sausage mixture forming a loaf. Pinch edges to seal.
  • 4 Place loaf on baking sheet. Cut 4 short slits in top of dough. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool 5 minutes before slicing into 8 slices. Serve with maple syrup, if desired.

Expert Tips

Dough can be brushed with beaten egg before baking to make the crust a shiny, golden color.
