Linguiça Roll


Linguiça Roll/Pão com Linguica

During the holidays my children tend to give me requests for specific recipes they’re craving; it’s really wonderful for me to get those requests. I love knowing how certain recipes brings us all back to our family table and the memories that surround us.
This recipe that I am sharing is one of them. It’s always a huge hit serving them on Christmas morning !!
*I know you can always use readymade bread dough, but just incase you want to make the dough from scratch…

Ps… you can prep the night before by making the dough from scratch, and cooking and slicing the sausage. It will make it easier to assemble in the morning. Also sometimes I add  a bit of shredded cheese to the filling, too, but I leave that up to you.

For the dough (this step isn’t needed if you’re using pre-made dough)
8 cups flour
4 tsp instant dry yeast or 2 envelopes
4 tsp salt
4 Tbsp olive oil
3 cups warm water

For the filling:
1 lb of linguiça sausage, (or your favorite sausage)cooked and sliced

If you need baking sheets, I like using them from Wilton or Nordic Ware. Here’s an affordable set from Amazon that will serve you well.


In a medium saucepan place the linguisa and fill with water and bring to a low simmer for about 15 minutes, remove from pan and let cool. Then remove casings and cut the linguica into slices and leave aside.

Then, add all the dough ingredients into a standing mixer fitted with dough hook and set the timer for 10 minutes. You can also mix by hand and knead for 10 minutes as well.
The dough will be smooth and elastic. Cover with a teacloth and let rise until double it’s size for 1 1/2-2 hours.

Next, divide the dough into 18-20 evenly sized pieces, pat flat, fill with about 3+ slices of sausage, pinch the dough together, flip over onto your baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and let rise for another 30 minutes.
Bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes.
