    Cookin-jo's Note:

    This appetizer is not only delicious but adaptable as well. Use your choice of mushrooms, creme fraiche or sour cream, shallots or red or white onion. Make the mushrooms a few hours ahead if you like but toast the bread just before serving. Adapted from Fine Cooking magazine.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Wipe any dirt from the mushrooms with a damp cloth or paper towel.
    2. 2
      Cut off any tough stems; half smaller mushrooms and quarter larger ones to make approximate even sizes.
    3. 3
      Heat butter and 1 Tbsp of the oil in a 10-12 inch deep saute pan over medium-high heat.
    4. 4
      Add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt and cook, stirring often, for 8-10 minutes, until any liquid has evaporated. If the mushrooms become too dry add a drizzle of oil.
    5. 5
      Transfer mushrooms to a cutting board, let cool a few minutes, and chop coarsely.
    6. 6
      Wipe out the pan and set over medium heat with 1 Tbsp olive oil.
    7. 7
      Add shallots, thyme and a pinch of salt and stir for a minute or two until shallots are tender and slightly golden.
    8. 8
      Return the mushrooms to the pan and stir in the creme fraiche to heat through without bringing to a simmer.
    9. 9
      Remove from the heat and stir in parsley and more salt and black pepper to taste.
    10. 10
      Note: If you are making the mushrooms in advance stir in only 1/4 cup of the creme fraiche now and add the other 1/4 cup when reheating later.
    11. 11
      Just before serving position oven rack 6 inches below the broiler element and heat broiler.
    12. 12
      Place baguette slices on a baking sheet and brush with olive oil; Broil for a minute or two to toast.
    13. 13
      Spread warm mushroom mixture over toasts and sprinkle on the Parmigiano-Reggiano.
    14. 14
      Note: Do not at any time overheat the mushroom mixture once the creme fraiche has been added or the cream will break.
