Yummy! I love the traditional crostini, but my husband, the quintessential meataholic, loves this one as much as I do! Easy to prepare, this crostini fills the bill for my entire family! Our only problem was eating too much of it! Thanks for posting!!


This was actually pretty good. I made it for Super Bowl '11. I used Bob Evans 'Hot and zesty' sausage being that our grocer was out of Jimmy Dean's sausage and my BF doesn't really care for raw onions, so I used the Chive & Onion cream cheese. Also, I just bought pre-sliced french bread and cut them in 1/2. I modified this recipe some, but this is a great base recipe.


This was really good!! I cooked the onion and pepper with the sausage!! Really brought out the flavors!
