Italian Chicken Sausage Pasta Salad

Try this delicious spin on the classic burger recipe!

Ingredients:

Serves 5-6

  • 1 package of Organic Tomato, Basil, and Mozzarella Bilinski’s Chicken Sausage
  • 6 slider buns
  • 1/4 cup of pesto, homemade or store bought
  • 1-2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 ounces of fresh mozzarella, sliced into 10-12 slices
  • Cherry tomato, fresh basil, and extra mozzarella for garnish
  • Vegetable oil, for the patties and the grill
  • Butter, for the buns

Instructions:

1. In a food processor, grind up the sausages so they are entirely ground.

2. Divide the ground sausage into 5-6 sausage patties; about 1/4 cup each.

3. Lightly brush vegetable oil on both sides of the patties.

4. Place patties on the grill; cook about 4 minutes on each side. When there is 2 minutes left on the second side, add a slice of mozzarella on top; allow to melt slightly. Once the mozzarella cheese has melted slightly, remove the patties from the grill.

5. While the patties are grilling, butter the buns & add them to the grill, grilling them until lightly golden. Place a slice of mozzarella on the bottom half of the slider bun & allow to melt slightly then remove from the grill.

6. Place the patties on the bottom half of the burger bun, layer with pesto, a slice of tomato, and the other half of the slider bun and enjoy!
