Mushroom bruschetta

This is my go-to appetizer whenever I’m entertaining. This is how my mushroom bruschetta looked just before being popped into the oven – where’s the final picture you ask? Well, even though I was standing in the kitchen, only feet away from the oven, I somehow managed to forget about my broiling apps and so they ended up a tad too overdone to make a pretty picture (I really need to master the art of multi-tasking when chatting with guests). But I’m sure you can just imagine how yummy these look after being broiled for a few minutes…super yummy.

First things first, thinly slice 2 packages of mushrooms – any kind will do. All I had on hand were those plain white button mushrooms and they worked just fine. Saute mushrooms in olive oil over medium-high heat until browned and the edges are crispy. While the mushrooms are browning, flavour with fresh black pepper, onion salt, a tiny pinch of sage, a dash of balsamic vinegar and salt.

On a small plate, mix olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Slice a loaf of fresh baguette and lightly dip each piece into the balsamic vinegar /olive oil mixture. Spread baguette on a baking sheet and spoon mushrooms over. Top with sliced brie cheese and pop in the oven to broil for about 5 minutes, or until the brie is melted and slightly golden. Enjoy!

  1. beautiful blog!! I was looking at some of your past posts. YUM! Question: Does your new camera really make a difference in your photos??!! What kind is it?They are lovely pics.

  2. Thanks Kathryn! Your blog is beautiful too – I absolutely love your header image:)

    While I’m still ‘figuring’ my new camera out, I really think it makes a HUGE difference. When I look back at my first posts using my old camera and compare them to my most recent post pictures I really see a difference. The pictures seem so much warmer to me. I decided to spoil myself and got the canon rebel xsi and I could not be happier.
