Sorry for the lack of post yesterday… but I have good news: New RFFMBT shirts are almost here! Keep checking back because I am hoping to have them listed in the shop later this week! I will make an announcement via my blog, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter when they are ready for purchase! I have a couple of new designs that I’m really excited for you guys to see as well as my famous “Eat More Rabbit Food” shirts!
Remember when I used to do Toast Tuesdays?! Today’s recipe kind of brings that back to the blog… in a super sophisticated toast way haha. Here’s to this small bite for Toast Tuesday!
Whether you’re entertaining guests, in need of a quick snack, or looking for a simple appetizer for dinner with your family, these Mushroom Crostini are easy peasy to make! I find myself loving the most simple of recipes because you get to experience so much of one flavor in a single bite. These minimal ingredient mushroom crostini were inspired by my trip to the Mycopia Mushroom Farm and are full of earthy flavor and the perfect amount of crunch and chewiness. The flavor of mushrooms cooked in olive oil, salt, and pepper is like no other. Simple, and delicious.
Easy Peasy Mushroom Crostini
Serves 1 – when making this recipe for guests, the more mushrooms the merrier!
4 slices of whole grain baguette, 1/2 inch thick slices
1 cup chopped baby bella mushrooms
1 Tbps olive oil
Pinch of salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lay sliced bread on a baking sheet and spray each piece with olive oil cooking spray. Bake for about 15 minutes or until they begin to turn golden brown. While the crostini cook in the oven, heat olive oil in a skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook for about five minutes until they become soft. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and toss well. Transfer the mushrooms and top on the whole grain crostini. Serve.
Note: I like to use olive oil spray to lighten up my crostini bread. Especially since there is already a serving of olive oil mixed in with the mushrooms! It’s a lighter way to get your bread crispy.
