Grocery List

Fresh Produce

  • 3 fresh nectarines
  • 1 limes

Meat / Poultry / Seafood

  • 6 fresh Italian sausages, each about 4 oz

Oil and Spices

  • 0.25 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Condiments

  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 6 tbsp honey

Other

  • 1 baguettes

Ingredients


  • 6 fresh hot and/or sweet Italian sausages, each about 4 ounces
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • 3 firm but ripe, fresh nectarines, each cut in half
  • 1 baguette, cut into ½-inch-thick slices (about 32)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Instructions

  1. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

  2. Lightly brush the sausages with oil. Whisk 2 tablespoons of the honey, the lime juice, and vinegar, and then brush all over the nectarine halves. Save the remaining honey-lime mixture for basting the nectarines on the grill.

  3. Grill the sausages over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until fully cooked (160°F), 10 to 15 minutes, turning occasionally. At the same time, grill the nectarine halves over direct medium heat until browned in spots and warm throughout, 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally and basting with the remaining honey-lime mixture each time they are turned. Remove from the grill as they are done.

  4. Lightly brush both sides of the baguette slices with oil, and then grill over direct medium heat until toasted, 1 to 2 minutes, turning once.

  5. Mix the remaining ¼ cup honey with the mustard.

  6. Cut the sausages lengthwise, and then crosswise into thirds (to fit the crostini). Cut the nectarines into thin slices. Lightly spread honey mustard on one side of each baguette slice. Top each baguette slice with one nectarine slice and one sausage piece. Serve right away.

Great recipe but I would increase the marinade

I made this recipe tonight for the 1st time and it was a big hit. But I ran out of marinade for the nectarines and would suggest doubling the amount of that marinade. It is so simple to use a little more lime juice, etc. I will definitely make this again. Everyone loved it. thanks

Fantastic Father's Day

This was great- we served kids from 3 to 87 with it and all agreed it was wonderful. Sticky but tasty. I will definitely put this in the "keeper" file! Thanks for a great, unique, delicious idea!!!!

Why did I wait this long to try this?

Exceeded my wife's and my expectations. The balance of sweet vs sour was perfect and the meal completely satisfied our appetite without over stuffing ourselves.

Next I will use my homemade Country French Bread and see if I can take it up a notch. Unlikely but I'll try.

Thanks
