Enjoy a delicious new way to serve up the first meal of the day! Juicy strawberries and Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage Patties combine with the fresh flavors of mint and basil to deliver bite-size pieces of perfection.

Ingredients

  • 12 Ounces Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage Patties
  • 2 small Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 Cup fresh pineapple, diced
  • 4 strawberries, hulled and diced
  • 4 basil leaves, chiffonade
  • 1/4 Cup mint leaves, chopped
  • 3 Tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 French baguette, half-inch slices
  • 1/3 Cup olive oil
  • 8 slices of fresh mozzarella, cut in half

Directions

On a cutting board, cut each raw sausage patty in half and re-form them into 16 mini patties. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook the sausage patties for 6 to 8 minutes, or until cooked through and browned, remembering to turn the patties often. Remove the patties from the heat and set aside on a plate. 

In a bowl, combine tomato, pineapple, strawberries, basil, mint, and syrup; set aside. Place the oven rack in the top third section of the oven; set to broil. On a baking sheet, place 16 slices of bread, brush lightly on one side with olive oil, and place oiled side down. Broil for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly toasted. Using tongs, flip bread slices. Place one piece of the mozzarella on each slice of bread. Return the bread and cheese to the oven; broil for 1 minute longer. Transfer to a serving plate. Top each with a cooked sausage patty. Spoon 1 tablespoon of fruit mixture onto each patty and serve.
