June 14, 2017

Ingredients:

1 (12 oz) package al fresco® Roasted Pepper & Asiago Chicken Sausage

3 cups tomatoes, fresh, diced

3 cloves garlic, finely minced

1 tbsp cilantro, fresh, finely chopped

1 tbsp parsley, fresh, chopped

2 tbsp basil, fresh, chopped

2 tbsp lemon juice, fresh

1 tsp vinegar, balsamic

5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided

1/2 cup red onion, finely chopped

1/4 tsp black pepper

1 tsp sugar

1 loaf French bread (sliced into 32 pieces)

Cooking Spray, olive oil

2 tbsp Asiago cheese, fresh, shreddedfor garnish

1/4 cup oregano, fresh leaves for garnish – wash and pat dry

Directions:

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the diced tomatoes, minced garlic, chopped herbs, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, 2 tbs of olive oil, and chopped red onion. Season with salt, sugar and black pepper.
  • Brush the French bread slices lightly with the remaining 3 tbs of olive oil and lightly toast under the broiler (about 5 – 6″ from broiler unit). Toast can burn quickly, so keep a watchful eye on this process.
  • Meanwhile pan fry or grill (prepared with Pan spray) the al fresco Roasted Pepper & Asiago Chicken Sausages over medium high heat until nicely browned. Slice each link on the diagonal into 8 pieces.
  • Top each toast with a slice of the chicken sausage, followed with a spoonful of bruschetta, and garnish with fresh oregano and a small shaving of Asiago Cheese.
  • Serve immediately.

 

*Make the bruschetta a few hours in advance for the savory flavors of the herbs and seasonings to marinate.

Herbs can be used in any combination for a delicious savory bruschetta. Grate lemon first before juicing, and add a little to the bruschetta for a zesty flavor.
