Sweet Savory Smoked Sausage Crostini

Hidemi Walsh


I love experiment in my kitchen which I do every day. One day, I found out that mayonnaise and orange marmalade are perfect match. Also I found out that smoked sausage goes very well with those too. I had a loaf of Italian bread so decided to make crostini with these ingredients. To make the taste better, I made garlic bread and added parmesan cheese to add more savory flavor. My husband loved so much that he ate more than half of the loaf by himself!
