“These are like bruschetta, with no tomatoes, on steroids...serve them as hearty appetizers or as a main dish with a salad. This recipe is great to use up stuff like leftover bread and ricotta cheese....I always seem to end up with a bit of ricotta cheese from other recipes! These are great to serve the football crowd.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown sausage, stirring often, in a large skillet over medium heat until browned; add garlic and spinach and continue to cook, stirring, until spinach wilts, about 1-2 minutes; remove from heat and stir in the ricotta cheese, nutmeg and pepper.
  2. Preheat your broiler; place toast slices on a sheet or pan that can go under the broiler.
  3. Spread the sausage-cheese mixture on each slice of toast and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Place on pan and broil for 3-4 minutes, or till the cheese is browned and the topping is kind of bubbly; you may need to do this in two batches.
  5. Serve them hot!
