Easy Sausage Loaf

This bread is a full meal deal which is flavorful and comforting. Its easy to knead and perfect for anytime. Complement this bread with some scrambled eggs or poached eggs and you have an elaborate brunch.

Warm Water - 1/4 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 tbsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Olive Oil - 2 tbs
All Purpose Flour - 3 -3 1/4 cups
Whole Wheat Flour - 1/2 cup
Sausages - 1 pound (you can also Italian Sausages with the meat removed from the casing)
Egg - 1, beaten lightly to glaze
Yeast - 2 1/4 tsp

Sprinkle the yeast over warm water in a large electric mixer bowl. Let the yeast stand for about 5 minutes. Stir in the milk, sugar, salt and 1 tablespoon of the oil. Add 2 1/2 cups of the flour and mix in to blend untill smooth and elastic. Add in the whole wheat flour and about 1/4 cup more of the all purpose flour. Knead the dough till it is smooth and satiny. Turn the dough into a well greased bowl and allow to rest for about 45 minutes to an hour. Meanwhile, fry the sausages till brown. Using a slotted spoon remove the sausage and cool on paper towels. Punch the risen dough and pat down into a 1/2 inch thick circle.
Sprinkle the meat over the round of the dough, fold and knead the sausage lightly into the dough. Shape the dough into a ball and place into a greased baking tray. Make incisions across the top of the dough. Brush the  top with the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil and leave to prove for another 45 minutes. Brush with egg yolk. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for about 35 minutes till golden and the crust sounds hollow. Cool on a wire rack before slicing. Serve with a mayo dip or cheese spread.
