  • 1 lb sausage
  • 10 button mushrooms finely chopped
  • 2-4 oz cream cheese or goat cheeese(any soft cheese will work)
  • 2 tbsp fresh minced garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme(1/4tsp dried)
  • 1/4 tsp dried sage
  • 1 cup chopped spinach you can use frozen too, make sure you drain it and squeeze the water out.
  • 1 cup cup finely chopped bread
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 loaf baguette or fresh sourdough bread, sliced into thin pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 stick butter


  1. Brown your sausage in a large skillet. Once

  2. Once it has browned turn the span on low heat, add your garlic, thyme, sage, chopped mushroom and stir in.

  3. Add your bread and spinach and stir until the spinach cooks down.

  4. Next, add the cream cheese cheese in small pieces and stri as it melts into the mixture.

  5. Turn the oven off and stir in the parmesan cheese

  6. Now its time to prep your bread. I like to toast mine in my toaster or you can lay them all out on a sheet pan and bake/broil them in the oven until golden brown.

  7. brush a buttere on the toasted slices, and then rub the garlic across the slicees as well. The heat from the toast will help loosen the oils from the garlic and add flavor.

  8. Turn your broiler on

  9. Top the toasted slices with the sausage and mushroom mixture. Sprinkle a bit of parmesan cheese over the top and broil for just a couple minutes until the cheese melts.

  10. Serve these hot.

  11. You can make the filling ahead of time and heat it up before serving when you are ready.
