Serves 6 to 8

1 baguette, sliced into ½ inch slices
1 package Johnsonville Fresh Italian Mild Ground Sausage
1 small red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
2 pears, diced
½ teaspoons red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper
A handful of fresh sage, chopped


Place a cast-iron grill over high heat.

Place the baguette slices onto a baking sheet and drizzle with a little EVOO. Place the bread onto the grill and toast them, about 3 minutes per side.

Heat a little EVOO over high heat. Add the sausage and cook, crumbling with a wooden spoon or spatula, until brown. Once brown, add the onion, garlic and pears. Cook for a few minutes more. Add the red pepper flakes and season with salt and pepper. Add the sage, and remove from heat.

Top each grilled bread slice with a spoonful of the cooked sausage mixture and enjoy!
