(Make It A Double) Tomato-Basil Chicken Sausage Bruschetta
Updated: Jun 27
North Country Smokehouse has a delicious "Tomato Basil Chicken Sausage" available that I really wanted to showcase something in the form of an appetizer, a brunch option, even a dinner option. I did not want the dish to be heavy. I am using Big Dog Sauce Company's Blackberry sauce instead of the traditional balsamic vinegar. What we end up with is an absolutely delicious bruschetta and it bakes up extremely well!
Please visit Big Dog Sauce Company of New Hampshire for their wonderful sauces and spice-rub. You will need their "Blackberry Sauce" for this recipe. Please also visit North Country Smokehouse for their "Tomato Basil Chicken Sausage" for this recipe as well. They have a large line of high quality meats and other products available.
INGREDIENTS: 2 links - North Country Smokehouse Tomato Basil Chicken Sausage, sliced thin 4 - Sliced Bread of choice (Italian bread, ciabatta, sandwich bread cut lengthwise, etc) 1lb Mozzarella, shredded
1 Recipe - Big Dog Sauce Company's Blackberry Bruschetta Mix
Big Dog Sauce Company's Blackberry Sauce Olive oil Kosher Salt and Black Pepper, to taste
Oven - preheat to 375¯F/190°C
Prep your ingredients ahead of time
In a half-sheet tray, place your sliced breads
Drizzle olive oil on your bread and dust with kosher salt and black pepper
Next, place a light layer of mozzarella cheese on all of the sliced bread.
Then, spoon on a small layer of your blackberry bruschetta mix on each sliced bread.
Take your prepped chicken sausage and place on top. Allow space in between sausage rounds
Lightly spoon on some blackberry sauce from the bottle, on top of the sausage. Option: add more mozzarella on top
Set the timer for a minimum 17 minutes
Check for doneness. Mozzarella should be niced and melted.
Once out of the oven, garnish with fresh basil and shred some parmesan cheese on top.
Serve this as is or with a bowl of soup. This can be sliced up into appetizer quarters or in half as a small meal.
RECOMMENDATIONS: North Country Smoke House Vermont cheddar sausage, jalapeno cheddar sausage, whiskey fennel sausage. This will also work with poultry, pork, steak, seafood, on rice, with eggs, and with either fresh bread or garlic bread.
