Cooking with Alicia and Annie **Lasagna Bread

I received an email from Afton Ellsworth telling me about the recipe sites she and her husband have. They are also doing a cooking contest for November checkout I chose Lasagna Bread ...... I made it for lunch today. It is very hearty and the family enjoyed it . It goes great paired with a green salad and fruit. Especially after all the treats from Halloween. I made a change or two due to personal preference. It really does taste alot like lasagna.
Lasagna Bread
1/2 lb. sausage ( I used Mild Italian )
1/2 lb. hamburger
3/4 c. chopped onion
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1 tbsp. parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. leaf basil
1/2 tsp. leaf oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1 can tomato paste
1 c. creamed cottage cheese(I just beat my cottage cheese with a mixer)
1 egg
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 cans crescent rolls( They do make a sheet sized one now)
2 (7x4 inch) pieces Mozzarella cheese
1 tbsp. milk
1 tbsp. sesame seed ( I substituted with Italian Seasoning)

Meat mixture: Brown meat, add all seasonings, onion and paste and simmer for 5 minutes. Cheese mixture: Combine cottage cheese, egg and Parmesan cheese.

Crust: On a large cookie sheet, press the crescent rolls into a 15x13 inch rectangle. Spoon half the meat mixture onto the dough, leaving a border on the sides and enough dough at the top and the bottom to enclose ingredients like a letter inside an envelope. Follow meat mixture with cheese mixture, then the other half of the meat mixture, placing the sliced Mozzarella cheese on last. Enclose ingredients pressing dough together with fingers. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until crust is golden brown. It took around 20 minutes in my oven. Serves 6

Hi Anissa, the bread looks great! I've added your photo to Alicia's here and have entered you into the drawing. Can you please add the link to the recipe in your blog post?
