A closeup of a slice of this sausage and fig naan pizza topped with chopped parsleyThere’s just something about gathering your friends and family together that really makes my soul very happy! Having a full house and full bellies are what Southern Hospitality means!! Look it up in the dictionary, I am sure that is what it says!

Sometimes entertaining may happen at the spur of the moment. Like you’re chatting with friends and everyone says let’ get together tonight.  What to bring?? Well, I volunteer for appetizers, because this one is EASY and DELISH!

I was in Publix (my favorite and local grocery store) last week and Boar’s Head was sampling two of their products. Buffalo Chicken and Bacon Chicken Sausage! They were serving it on a pita bread.  Well, that got my wheels to spinning. I picked up some multi grain naan, because it’s so delicious, and deli cheese.  I had a jar of fig preserves in my cupboard that was calling “Put ME on that Small Bite”.

AND when Figs talk to you, you just better listen!  Don’t you know this was divine intervention, you just wait! YUM!

Whether you are planning ahead or last minute these easy Small Bites really embody that perfect taste of smokey bacon in the juiciest chicken sausage, the creamy muenster cheese (oh do I really need to say anymore it has cheese on it – so THEREFORE it is fabulous – I am pretty sure that it in the good book somewhere), to the sweet fig preserves. Bake it all up y’all and you will be so glad you did!

What you need to make Chicken Sausage and Naan Fig Bites

  • Water
  • Naan Bread

How to Make Chicken Sausage and Fig Naan

First pan fry the sausage on med high for 5 to 7 minutes. You can remove or leave on casings, whatever your personal preference is.  Then dice up into bite sized pieces and pan fry until browned. The sausages are fully cooked so this is just for browning and caramelizing them.

Brush the naan breads with olive oil. Then stack on diced sausage. If you cannot find the bacon sausage, you can add some diced bacon or pancetta to the sausage when cooking.

Top with shredded muenster cheese. I get a hunk of cheese from my deli and shred it fresh. Divine!

Then mix your fig preserves with some water to make it more spreadable (such a technical culinary term) and spoon over the cheese.

Bake on a cookie sheet for 7 to 9 minutes at 375°. I like to finish under the broiler for 1 minute! Just keep an eye out! Every oven is different and you don’t want to burn this deliciousness.

Let them cool a second or two, if you can keep your hands off of them 😉 Slice with a pizza cutter into desired sized bites. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve on a pretty tray or on a cutting board.

TIPS:

Line your baking sheet with foil (and spray) or use parchment paper.

You can also mild or spicy Italian pork sausage.
