Wild Mushroom Crostini with Goat Cheese

“I had dinner at my friend Donna’s house one night and she served a mushroom appetizer with some crackers that was really tasty. So I went to find a similar recipe and found this. This is a little fancier with the crostini and goat cheese, but the mushroom mixture served with crackers is good on its own as well.” – April Ferre

Course: Appetizer


  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Pound Assorted Mushrooms (See Note) Stems Removed, Thinly Sliced
