Mushroom Crostini

Ingredients

  • 1 small (or 1/2 large) baguette
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 shallot, thinly sliced into rings
  • 8 ounces chanterelles or other wild mushrooms, trimmed and coarsely chopped
  • 12 rounds (1/4 inch thick) goat cheese, cut from a log (about 6 ounces), room temperature

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut baguette crosswise into 12 quarter-inch thick slices; place on a baking sheet. Brush with oil; season with salt and pepper. Toast in the middle of oven until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add shallot; cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and any juices have evaporated, 7 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  3. Place a round of goat cheese on top of each crostini; top with a tablespoon of mushroom mixture. Sprinkle with chives. Serve warm.

    this is really wonderful and easy to make. also very good with herbed goat cheese and not to heavy as an appetizer.
