The Crostini Italiano from The HappyCow Cookbook is technically an appetizer – but this didn’t stop me from enjoying it for lunch! With just a few minor adjustments, I was able to turn it into a sandwich. Instead of slicing the baguette into rounds, cut it lengthwise, like a hot dog bun; and rather than dice the Field Roast Italian sausages into bits, cut the links lengthwise, leaving their meaty bits intact. Spread the olive tapenade on the bottom slice of bread and smear the cream cheese on top and – voilĂ ! – sammies are served.

So this recipe is a little wonky in that it doesn’t tell you what to do with the garlic/chive mix. I added it to the cream cheese to make a pretty killer garlic chive flavor. I suppose you could just sprinkle it onto the sandwich (or crostini) too – it all goes down the same pie hole, after all.

All in all, a pretty delicious and filling lunch! Plus I finally got to try the Field Roast sausages Shane’s always hoarding from me! Double score.
