Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Prepare the crostini’s by slicing the baguette 1/4″ thick, on a bias, place on a baking sheet in a single layer, brush with EVOO & lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove loose dirt, roughly chop and set aside.
  4. Dice shallot, mince garlic, de-stem and chop the thyme, set aside.
  5. Place goat cheese in a small bowl, mix in 1 Tbs. of the fresh thyme leaves, and salt and pepper, set aside.
  6. Place crostini on the middle rack of the oven, bake 10-12 minutes or until just golden brown, keep an eye on them! They will continue to crisp a little as they cool and you’ll still want a little give to the bread.
  7. Preheat a large skillet over med-high heat 1-2 minutes. Add 2 Tbs. EVOO and 2 Tbs. butter to melt. Add mushrooms in a single layer, cook for one minute undisturbed. Stir, continue to cook 3-4 minutes until they have golden edges. Add garlic, shallot, salt, pepper and sherry. Cook an additional 3-4 minutes.
  8. Remove crostini’s from the oven, spread goat cheese on each and top with warm mushrooms.
  9. Serve on a platter and sprinkle with remaining fresh chopped thyme.
Recipe Notes

For the mixed mushrooms, you can use any you like.  For this recipe, I used equal amounts of button, cremini and shiitake mushrooms.

Make sure you use a damp paper towel to clean them and do not wash.  If you do, they will be water logged and won’t brown, they will steam.
