Brazilian flair hot bruschetta sandwich is a quick and easy way to put together a nice appetizer without sacrificing the most important part: the flavor.
We made this delicious sandwich with pretty much all the leftovers we had in our fridge. A day old baguette, minced garlic, fresh mozzarella that we had and Portuguese linguiça that needed to be used. As we showed on the video below there’s no secret to making this delicious appetizer that you can also serve with a side salad made with arugula.
I used the Portuguese linguiça because I thought about the Brazilian sausage that I used to have all the time while I lived in Brazil. This is the closest sausage that is available here in the US to use,but it isn’t the same as what I had in Brazil. We use this Portuguese sausage to make feijoada – such a typical Brazilian dish made with black beans.
So, Enjoy it!!
I read this article and I thought about the infinite number of food blogs out there.. The article title is “If the recipe hasn’t been tested, can you trust it? Marilyn and I share the same opinion regarding this subject. We can’t imagine writing a recipe without testing it. Sometimes, when you put together the ingredients in your mind it works perfectly but after you’re done the flavors don’t work. We have made many recipes that didn’t work out and we never added them to our blog.
