Are you ready for the holidays? I feel like this season brings so many gatherings of friends and family. We always have weekend plans and places to go and friends to see. We just hosted our mini-Friendsgiving and it was nice to reconnect and chat with friends. We’re definitely not traditional, so I wanted to share one of the recipes I came up with. I kind of went rogue and didn’t stick to traditional meals, and I have to say while I was a bit worried it ended up being a hit! I took a twist on a traditional favorite, I made Sausage & Peppers Bread Bites.
They are absolutely delicious. Once I tasted one I kept going, I was probably more excited about the fact that I executed the idea though because sometimes I’m not the greatest in the kitchen. These little bread bites are so super easy though.
The ingredients you want to grab are red, yellow, orange and green peppers. An onion and some garlic. And you can go with a bread of choice, even turning them into sliders if you wanted, I chose crustinis. And then I went with Johnsonville Italian Sausage. We always use their links when we do sausage & pepper sandwiches so it made sense to pick up their ground sausage for this twist. they are the number one brand of sausage in America, after all. Convenience is key for throwing holiday parties like Friendsgiving; make it easier by cooking with Johnsonville.
The first thing you want to do is chop your onions. Take a bit of vegetable oil and put them on low heat.
While you’re onions are cooking you’re going to get started chopping up all of your gorgeous peppers. I usually let the onions go for about 15 minutes and then I turn the heat up a little bit, not quite to medium but up from low and add in my peppers.
Add you’re peppers in and stir it up a bit, turn the heat up to medium and prepare to add your sausage. After about five minutes you can break up the Johnsonville ground sausage and start adding it to the pan.
You’re going to keep this going for until the sausage is fully cooked.
I added mine to a dish for easy access for everyone to scoop onto their crustini’s.
They came out so good, super delicious. My husband has already requested them for our Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve get together!
