Comfort food so good you’ll think you’re at the State Fair.

1 loaf (1 lb) unsliced French bread
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1 lb. bulk Italian sausage
1 – 1/2 cups chopped onion
2 cups (8 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

Cut bread in half lengthwise; carefully hollow out top and bottom of loaf, leaving a 1 inch shell. Cube removed bread. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, milk, pepper and salt. Add bread cubes and toss to coat; set aside. In a skillet over medium heat, cook sausage and onion until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Add to the bread mixture. Spoon filling into bread shells; sprinkle with cheese. Wrap each in foil. Bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes or until cheese in melted. Cut into slices.
