Mushroom and Goat Cheese Crostini

On a recent date night, my husband and I enjoyed a fabulous appetizer at a local restaurant.  It was toasted bread, goat cheese, mushrooms – so simple and so tasty!  And, it turns out, super easy to recreate at home!

1 large baguette
7oz. pkg. herb goat cheese, room temperature
2 TBSP olive oil
1 lb. mushrooms, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4c dry white wine
1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
2 green onions, chopped
1.  Preheat oven to 350*
2.  Arrange baguette slices on a baking sheet and lightly toast in the oven.
3.  Allow bread to cool down and spread goat cheese, to taste, on each piece.
4.  In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium high heat.  Add the mushrooms and sauté, 3-5 minutes.
5.  Add garlic and continue cooking another minute or so.
6.  Add wine and balsamic vinegar.  Stir while liquids are reduced slightly.

7.  Stir in green onions and remove from heat.
8.  Top each crostini with the warm mushroom mixture and serve immediately.
