Recipe: Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Stromboli

Sausage Egg and Cheese Breakfast Stromboli... genius.. pure genius!

The other day I was looking at my pizza dough in the fridge... yes... I do dorky things like that...  and thought...  you know... I could stuff a Stromboli with cooked breakfast stuff... and it just might taste pretty darn good.... and it did!..

Yes siree.... it was reminiscent of my Sausage Egg and Cheese Bagel Sandwich addiction that I developed from the cafeteria at work.  I just could not help myself... I had to have them ... although  I  did limit them to once a week so my butt wouldn't become the size of Alaska (largest land mass state in the US).
What makes this genius... is that ... you can make the stuffing ingredients ahead... and two.. you can use Pillsbury pizza dough... and three... it bakes fast.. to serve the minions you just slice it.. you can breakfast made in a flash.. all while calmly and serenely sipping your morning coffee.... ahhh now I have your attention!
The key to success here.. is breaking up the scrambled eggs and lots of cheese... I had egg "lumps" in my first try at this.. and not enough of the other stuff in spots...... and the whole point is to have sausage, egg and cheese in every bite. 
I also used shredded cheese rather than sliced cheese... both work.. sliced cheese is easier..  and with shredded cheese.. you'll think you have a lot of cheese in it.. and after it bakes it won't seem like enough... so if you use shredded cheese... pile it on.
I used cheddar cheese... you can use any cheese you like... American, Monterey Jack, Colby Jack, and Mexican blend all work well also.
I listed the cheese amount as 2+ cups... if you like it cheesy .. use more.. if you like it less cheesy use less or the directed amount.
Instead of bulk sausage.. you can also use sausage patties and cut them up... I would say cut in half.. would work well.  Use your favorite breakfast sausage.
My best suggestion is break up the scrambled eggs into crumbles.... when spreading the ingredients on the dough... put a generous layer of cheese on the dough... then the egg crumbles, then the sausage crumbles or patty chunks... then a generous layer of cheese...
Make the ingredients ahead and assemble  in the morning... then bake... 5 minutes of prep.. and 15-20 minutes later... breakfast!
