Bread Surprise Supper

(Rantoul, Illinois)

When I was young and raising four boys and a hungry husband,I realized that things were a bit tough at that time in our lives and that night I had to stretch what i had.

I made my Sicilian bread dough and cut it into portions,rolled it out into individual circles. I put leftover Italian sausage,mozzarella cheese, sauce, ricotta then folded the dough let it rise and then I deep fried until it was golden brown.

I drained it and put it on a plate with hot spaghetti sauce and a salad. My boys loved it and now we serve things like this at family get togethers with lots of other Italian favorites.


  • 2 cups of warm water
  • 2 Tbls of quick rising yeast
  • 1 Tbls of sugar
  • 4 Tbls of pure olive oil
  • 1 Tbls of salt
  • 4 cups of bread flour


  • Mix all the ingredients except the flour in a heavy duty mixer.
  • When all is well blended, begin adding the flour 1/2 cup at a time until the dough begins to ball up.
  • Transfer the dough to a floured board.
  • Knead the dough until smooth and elastic.
  • Set in a greased warm bowel for 30 minutes.
  • Turn out the dough onto a floured board and roll out a piece of dough to about the size of a cake plate.
  • Place 1/2tsp of olive oil onto the center of the dough.
  • Place leftover, Italian sausage, Parmesan cheese, ricotta, mozzarella cheese and some spaghetti sauce in the middle.
  • Fold the dough over and make a half moon.
  • Let it rise for 5 minutes.
  • Deep fry until golden brown on one side.
  • Using chop sticks, gently turn it over and brown the other side.
  • When done have the rest of sauce bubbly hot and serve over the fried stuffed bread and serve with a salad.
