Sausage-Pesto Pull-Apart Bread

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan heat the milk just until warm (105 degrees F to 115 degrees F). In a large bowl combine warm milk and yeast; stir until yeast is dissolved. Let stand 5 minutes.
  2. Add egg, the 1/4 cup melted butter, sugar, and salt to the yeast mixture. Beat with mixer on medium until combined. Add half the flour; beat on low for 30 seconds, scraping bowl as needed. Beat 1 minute on medium. Stir in remaining flour. Shape dough into a ball (dough will not be smooth). Place dough in a greased bowl; turn once to grease surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (45 to 60 minutes).
  3. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 20 x 12-inch rectangle. Stir together 1/3 cup pesto and the sausage; spread over dough. Sprinkle with red peppers and cheese. Cut rectangle in half lengthwise to make two 20x6-inch strips. Cut each strip crosswise into five 6 x 4-inch strips. Carefully make 2 stacks of 5 strips each. Cut each stack into 4 x 2-inch pieces. Loosely stagger pieces in pan, cut sides up. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (30 minutes).
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake about 45 minutes or until golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted near the center registers 200 degrees F. Cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan to serving plate. In a small bowl combine remaining pesto and oil. Drizzle over loaf.

Make Ahead Tip:
