Mushrooms, cheese and thyme crostini

Easy as walking to the fridge and taking out the ingredients. It's a lovely, yet simple, combination of flavors. Although we usually recommend using fresh ingredients, in this case canned mushrooms work best (they're moist and don't get too dried up in the oven). Try this snack whenever you feel like munching on something crispy and yummy. :)

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 4 square bread slices (for toast)
  • 100 g grated Emmentaler cheese
  • about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of fresh thyme leaves
  • 100 g champignons from the can
  • some olive oil and a garlic clove optionally

Preheat oven to 200 degrees C. If you want, rub the bread slices with olive oil and garlic. We skipped this step. Spread the cheese and thyme on the slices:

Get the mushrooms out of the can and after draining them gather them up in your hand and squeeze until no more water drops. Then, disperse them all over the bread slices:

When the oven is heated put them in and bake for 15 minutes. Take out and dig in! :)


  1. I bet you would have a better result by using fresh mushrooms tossed in a little bit of butter before baking

  2. That would be an idea worth trying. Lately we're fans of shiitake mushrooms very lightly fried in a little sesame oil. It's one of those things that taste very different than the sum of components, in very good way.
