This simple and espress recipe comes from the issue of May 2006 of Coup de Pouce. It looks delicious. And I have not tried this. With the review of Redsie, it's a good idea to add pizza sauce.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 onions, sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 3 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon mixed Italian herbs
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 baguette, cut in 4 on the width, then in half on the length
- 2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated
- 2⁄3 cup basil leaves, packed
- 2 tomatoes, sliced
- In a skillet, heat oil at medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, mushroom, salt, italian herbs and pepper. Cook, stirring, for about 6 minutes or until mushrooms are golden.
- Put slices of baguette on a baking sheet and sprinkle them with half the cheese. Spread on the slices of bread 1/2 cup of basil leaves, the mixture of mushrooms and tomatoes. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- Cook in a preheated oven of 400 F for 10 minutes or until cheese has melted. Cut remaining basil leaves in fine strips and sprinkle on hot pizzas.
The perfect conglomeration of ingredients...French bread topped with Italian-style veggies. All that's needed is a bottle of wine and someone to share. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.
Great flavor! I made some without the sauce, and they did come out a little dry, but adding sauce was great. Thanks for sharing!
I made this for a party I went to so I sliced a mini baguette and topped with everything but the tomato, only because I forgot it trying to get out of the house to the party. It was very good, but I think the key here is the Italian herbs that you use. I recently bought some spice mixes at TJ Maxx (believe it or not) that are out of this world. They can be found at www.vgourmet.com. I used the the Sicilian. To put the onion and mushroom mixture on the little bread, I put it in a bowl and cut it up with a fork and knife (I know, not very gourmet.) :D Only if you like onions and mushrooms is this recipe for you. I love them. The pizza sauce probably would have been a nice addition - of course the tomato as well. Pretty tasty though!
