Served this as an appetizer with my Sunday Martini - It went over well. I used a new (new to me) Italian bread called Thintini - it is 6" round (which I cut into quarters) and when cut in half is 1/4" deep - perfect.. I did not toast them quite long enough. I think this recipe is best on a crisp base. I used Vermouth for the wine - great!. Added a few drops of Hot Thai Chili sauce when I served them. Thanks Queen Dragon Mom for a keeper
This made a wonderful snack lunch...definitely something way more exciting than the boring old cheese sandwich! I did change a few little things though: I fried the bread in the pan that I used to do the mushrooms - that way it seeped up the flavours. I also sprinkled some grated cheese over the top. Mmmmm, delicious!
Oh, soooo very good! AND oh, so glad you posted it! Made for French Food and Foto event.
