"Skyrim" food was requested by @jannelandet on Twitter, and because I haven't played the game she kindly sent me the link to an impressive food item list. After perusing the list and imagining recipes for several of the items, I decided on this rendition of braided bread because I want to eat it. Now. And I'm sure the in-game characters would make meat filled bread if they could. It's very efficient/convenient to pack chunks of if you're working outside or traveling because it's basically a whole meal in one!
Note: The recipe below is for one large sausage bread but the amount of filling can be split between two sheets of crescent dough to make two thinner filled breads.
Braided Bread (w/ Sausage Filling)
1 Roll (16 oz.) Ground Sausage
1/2 Cup Diced Green Bell Pepper
1/2 Cup Diced Onion
1 tsp. Minced Garlic
2 Tbsp. Minced Fresh Parsley
1 tsp. Fresh Lemon Zest (optional)
4 oz. Cream Cheese (1/2 of an 8 oz. pkg)
1 Tube (8 oz.) Seamless Crescent Dough (or regular crescent dough w/ the perforations pressed together)
1 Egg, beaten
3. Transfer the sausage roll with the parchment paper it's sitting on to a baking tray & brush gently with the beaten egg so that the egg gets into all of the crevices (to give a better seal when baking). Bake at 350°F for about 25 minutes or until a nice golden brown all over. Let cool & then cut into slices. Great warm or cold!
