3-Ingredient cheesy sausage bruschetta are a delicious appetizer, typical of the cuisine of Tuscany. Their preparation is extremely simple and the final result strictly depends on the quality of the raw materials selected and used: first of all, simple Italian bread, some Italian sausages, preferably pork sausages, and a creamy and very fresh stracchino cheese. Very quick to prepare, these bruschettas are ideal to serve for an aperitif or a standing buffet, perhaps during your Easter Monday celebrations. Or, even when, having returned late from the office, you still don't want to give up something satisfying and substantial. You can also enjoy them as a quick meal, completing with fresh pan-fried vegetables.

Tips and Variations

– In our recipe the sausage is mixed raw with the stracchino cheese and then cooked in the oven; alternatively, you can crumble it in a hot pan, add a drop of white wine and cook until it is well browned. Once cold, mix it with the stracchino cheese and spread the cream obtained on the slices of bread, which will then be put in the oven at 356°F (180°C) for about ten minutes.

– The advice is to use typical Italian bread, ideal to enjoy with particularly savory ingredients, but you can also choose another type of bread: durum wheat, wholemeal, naturally leavened and so on.

– To give the preparation more fragrance, you can also add some fennel seeds.

– Stracchino cheese is a cow's milk cheese from the northwest regions of Italy, it's very soft with a delicious creamy texture. If you can't find it, you can switch it with some cream cheese and mozzarella.

– You can enrich the recipe by adding vegetables to your liking.

How to Make 3-Ingredients Cheesy Sausage Bruschetta Recipe

Let's start by removing the casing from the sausage, by cutting it down the middle.

Then, inside of a glass bowl, mix the raw sausages and the stracchino cheese with a fork, until you obtain a homogeneous mixture.

Slice 3 slices of Italian bread, not too thick, then cut them in half.

Spread the mixture on the halved bread slices and place them on a baking tray and bake them inside of the oven at 392°F (200°C) for about 10 minutes. When you see a nice and juicy crust, it's time to take the bruschettas out.

Add some black pepper.

Serve the bruschettas while still hot and enjoy!
