As much as I enjoy a slice of cake, I harbor a secret (ok not so secret) love for savory baking, and this loaf is the perfect example. It's all soft, fluffy white bread stuffed with spicy jalapeno cream cheese, breakfast sausage and scrambled eggs. The braid gives it that 'wow factor' for a weekend brunch but it's even better as a super-duper-crazy-easy week-day breakfast. Each slice is it's own breakfast sandwich.. no assembly required! You can bake the loaf on the weekend, then wrap it in plastic wrap and keep in the fridge. The slices are sturdy enough to pack for breakfast on the go and they heat up within seconds in the microwave. Breakfast bread.. where have you been all my life?
The filling ingredients are totally flexible, feel free to change up the flavors according to your preference! I love stuffing it with scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, and a jalapeno cream cheese base. However, you can put bacon instead of sausage, throw some green and red peppers into the cream cheese, or add cheddar to your eggs as you cook them. As long as you spread a cream cheese base (of any flavor) and under-cook the eggs so they don't dry out in the oven, you can mix and match flavors with whatever you have on hand.
