Stracchino and Sausage Crostini

These two ingredient stracchino and sausage crostini are so simple and crazy delicious. Tangy, soft cheese is mixed with Italian sausage and spread on some thick crusty bread.

Stracchino and sausage is such a classic combo here in Italy. It’s used to be spread on thick crusty bread and is then baked in the oven until the cheese has melted and the sausage is cooked through. Serve this hot as a snack, lunch or antipasto.

Stracchino cheese also known as Crescenza is such a delicious and creamy soft cheese with a delicate tangy flavour. Mix it with good quality Italian sausages and you’ll be in heaven, trust me.

I also used this combo to stuff these sweet mini peppers and they are insanely good!

You should be able to find stracchino cheese at a good Italian speciality food store or online if it’s not readily available. It’s so worth hunting it down just to make these sausage crostini.

So really this isn’t a recipe, it’s more of an assembly which means it’s quick, yay! The sausages are removed from their casings and mixed with the stracchino cheese in a bowl. I use a fork to mash it all together because it’s quite a sticky mixture.

Spread it on some thick crusty bread and bake it in the oven for around 15 minutes. The cheese should be melted and starting to brown and the sausage cooked through. So damn good.

This is so easy to whip up at lunch time or as an antipasto with a glass of red vino. Enjoy!

    Ok, you can leave the room now. I’ll take it from here. Pour a glass (or two) of wine and gorge myself on these amazing crostini. I mean why waste calories on anything green – you’ve got bread, sausage and cheese in one bite. My hero!
