Warm Mushroom Crostini

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Out of the Blue

Another one from the Toronto Star's Chef's Showcase from the 80s. Made it as part of dinner tonight and it ended up to be our dinner. Oh well, I don't have to cook tomorrow! And I have leftover crostini for lunch. Recipe by Chef Michael Bonacini.

Beautiful recipe. I used a whole wheat french loaf, sliced, drizzled with olive oil and sea salt and baked in the oven. Paired with Tenderloin skewers and Asparagus/Proscuitto bundles. Wonderful flavor/textures
