"delicious, easy and wonderful. Great to have with a drink or as a light lunch."
"This was excellent and itt had lots of flavor. I didn't have any tarragon and substituted basil which worked well. Also I added the olive oil and balsamic vinegar to pan and mixed slightly. Great recipe!"
"Very nice, quick, easy meal to prepare. I'm not a 100% sure I would add the tarragon next time. This recipe, as posted, definitely makes more than 4 servings, it's more like 8 rather than 4. All in all, a good meal."
"Very good flavor! I used 1/2 pound mushrooms and a whole small avocado. I did not add olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the top, because it didn't seem to need it. This makes enough for 16-20 baguette slices, not 4."
"delish! we modified it a bit for our diet, but used the same basic ingredients. we opted for crisped tortillas, and i cooked everything in a wok to avoid any oil. i didn't have any cheese or herbs, so i just used onion, mushrooms and avacado and drizzled with balsamic. just wonderful."
"Kate, this was yummy! I used small flour tortillas heated under the broiler instead of bread. I also was out of parmesean, so I used Montrachet goat cheese. Will make this again. (PS. using the new Zaar rating system)"
"Boy did we ever love this! Except for your bread suggestion, I made this exactly as written. We had it as part of a ZWT appy nite when we tried several things. After adding the avocado & warming it, I stuffed the mix into pita pockets & “dressed” them as directed w/the finishing touches. Was so good that I’ve made it already a 2nd time & will share w/our fishing friends this weekend. Thx for posting."
"You stole my plans to post this recipe here, Mizz Kate! This is so gooooood!! I love the avocado with all the other ingredients!"
"I cut back on the oil using 1 tablespoon in total for sauting the mushrooms and onions. Didn`t need to top the toasts with any. I found this will serve more then four you can top a whole loaf with the mixture. I enjoy mushrooms and avocados and never thought to put them together. These are great! I used thyme in place of the tarragon. very good and even better knowing I cut more then 1/2 the oil out!"
"Chef Kate, these were just SO delicious! Served these today as a light – but totally sustaining and satisfying – lunch, and I totally recommend this recipe to all who love mushrooms and avocado: a great weekend brunch/lunch dish, or mid-week supper dish. Quick to prepare, and really scrumptious! Thank you for sharing!"
"Wow, these were great! I am a hude mushroom fan, and probably a bigger avocado fan so these little guys were jut perfect to me. The thing I added was a little sour cream on the tops of them because I love the combination of hot and cold things. These toasts were creamy, crunchy, juicy, and down right good! They also pair nicely with a glass of merlot. lol. Thanx for posting!"
