This recipe is one of my absolutely favorite things to make for a crowd. Sausage bruschetta is inspired by my first trip to Italy.
We had this dish and it blew my mind, so when we returned from our trip, we had to recreate it. My dad actually came up with this sausage bruschetta recipe when we returned home, and it’s pretty damn close to the real thing.
I make these for my family and friends and they consistently love this recipe. Once I made two entire trays for my husband’s friends and they were all gone in 20 minutes. I’m not lying when I say people love these things. Make these sausage bruschettas for your next gathering or potluck and you’ll have everyone amazed!
- french baguette, sliced
- 1 lb italian sausage
- 1 cup grated soft cheese, like fontina or gruyere
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp garlic salt
Heat oven to 350 degrees. On a lined baking sheet, brush olive oil on your baguette slices. Bake for 5 minutes to toast the bread, then remove from the oven.
Next, Mix the Italian sausage, cheese, pepper, and garlic salt. You’ll want to really mix this well, so I recommend using your hands! Place an even amount of sausage mixture on the baguette slices.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the sausage is cooked through. Top with parmesan cheese and italian parsely for garnish.
