  3. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

  4. Add the onion and sausage, then cook for 9 minutes or until lightly browned.

  5. Stir in the eggs; cook for 1½ minutes or until set while continuing to stir. Remove from heat.

  6. Sprinkle the Monterey Jack lengthwise down the center of the dough, leaving about a 2½-inch border on each side.

  7. Spoon the egg mixture evenly over the cheese.

  8. Sprinkle the cheddar over the egg mixture, then top with the jalapeño peppers.

  9. Make 2-inch-long diagonal cuts about 1-inch apart on both sides of the dough, to within ½-inch of filling using a sharp knife or kitchen shears.

  10. Arrange the strips over the filling, alternating strips diagonally over the filling. Press the ends underneath to seal.

  11. Brush the dough with the egg white.
