Mushroom and Goat Cheese Toasts
Yield: 8-10 toasts
  • 1 loaf of crusty bread
  • 4 oz goat cheese
  • 8 ounces mushrooms (we used oyster and portobello), sliced
  • fresh thyme, a few sprigs chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large clove garlic
  • ¼ lemon, for fresh juice
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut the bread into thick slices and brush each side with olive oil. Place bread slices on a baking sheet and bake until toasted. Keep an eye on them but it should take about 5 minutes.
  3. Heat a large pan on medium heat and then add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the mushrooms, thyme, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes or until tender. Remove pan from the heat and squeeze lemon wedge over the mushrooms. Stir to incorporate.
  4. Now to assemble the toasts. Cut the end off a large garlic clove and rub the clove over the slices of warm bread. Spread a generous amount of goat cheese over each slice and top with the mushrooms. Garnish with additional fresh thyme and goat cheese crumbles.
