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.
