Wild Mushroom Crostini 3 ways

I got it from Janet, who got it from Slim and this is my version.  One of my favorite blogs is The Gardener's Cottage.  It is one I go to for fashion, home decor, gardening and food...Janet is vegan and I am not.  Not even close...I must say it crosses my mind now and again because she says she's over 50 and does not look a day over 40.  Check out Janet's vegan recipe for wild mushroom crostini here. 

This is my version. . .             

Wild Mushroom Crostini 
3 T butter or olive oil
12 ounces assorted wild mushrooms, sliced
1 1/2 tsp fresh thyme
Salt and pepper

Rustic Wheat Bread

Thyme Vinaigrette
1 to 2 T red wine vinegar
3 T fresh thume leaves
4 T mayonnaise
1 tsp agave syrup

Saute butter or olive oil, mushrooms and fresh thyme until cooked.
Place sliced rustic wheat bread in the broiler until lightly golden brown.
Brush with mayonnaise.  
Top each slice with a handful of arugula and then with the mushrooms.

Whisk together the ingredients for the vinaigrette and drizzle over the mushrooms. 
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  5. That looks heavenly and I love, love, anything with mushrooms! I know Janet's blog very well...she is wonderful! Thank you for stopping by and sympathizing with me! I am feeling better now that it is warming a bit here. I have a list a mile long for the contractor to tackle just due to this hard winter. New England is a beautiful place to live and the seasons and all...but I still think you are the lucky one to be in CA! I do miss living in the Bay area! My daughter is driving me crazy about going back to visit all our memories while we lived there. Have a great day!
