Very good. Used a spicy Italian Sausage, so they had a little punch. Next time, I might decrease the tomatoes a little. A bit too much for my taste.

We made this recipe in my pro-start class and it was absolutely amazing! Instead of using italian sausage we used normal sausage and i couldnt taste a difference but it was still amazing!

I brushed bread with olive oil and toasted first rather than garlic butter. Added a couple of tablespoons of pesto and a dash of balsalmic vinegar to the topping mix. Usually make bruschetta without meat, but this was a huge hit.

Really flavorful. I served this for dinner alongside a salad (boyfriend loved it). I added diced red pepper and it gave it a nice crunch, delicious! Next time I will make sure to pop the bread under the broiler after spreading the garlic butter, then add the rest of the topping and bake. Otherwise it has a raw garlic taste.

Very yummy. Used olive oil instead of butter and toasted both sides first.
