Shiitake Mushroom and Blue Cheese Crostini

Shiitake Mushroom and Blue Cheese Crostini

I was looking for a mushroom dish when I came across a recipe for shiitake mushrooms and blue cheese crostini. Shiitake mushrooms are one of my favorite mushrooms. They are tasty and most of the time they are fairly easy to find. I really enjoy mushrooms fried in butter and garlic. Blue cheeses have quickly become some of my favorites cheeses. The though of combining the butter and garlic fried mushrooms with a blue cheese sauce sounded really good. The shiitake mushroom and blue cheese crostini were amazing! They were full of flavour and the sauce was nice and creamy. Another great mushroom dish to add to my list.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
2 cups shiitake mushrooms (cleaned and sliced)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup white wine
2 tablespoons cream
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
1 handful parsley (chopped)
baguette (sliced and lightly toasted)
2 tablespoons parmigiano reggiano (grated)

Directions:
1. Melt the butter in a pan.
2. Add the garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
3. Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and saute until the mushrooms are golden brown, about 10 minutes.
4. Add the wine and deglaze the pan.
5. Add the cream and blue cheese and simmer until the cheese is melted and the sauce thickens.
6. Remove from heat and stir in the parsley.
7. Spoon the mushrooms onto the sliced baguette and top with some parmigiano reggiano.
8. Broil in the oven until the parmigiano reggiano is golden brown.

Nyommy - found this receipe and I made the blue cheese and mushroom sauce tonight to accompany a roast chicken. I didn't have wine or cream so i chucked in some vodka and low-fat milk - still very tasty! :) I'll definitely make it again, very easy.

Hi Kevin, I love your recipes :)
Do you think I could make this mixture 1-2 nights before and just spoon on baguettes & broil the next day? Thanks!

Kevin said...

cass: That would work! Enjoy!

cass said...

Just following up - I've made these a few times now for parties and everyone loves them. I always make the mixture a night or 2 before and quickly put them all together as people are about to arrive. I usually have to double the recipe since they go so quickly!! Thanks for a great, easy recipe!
