Tomato Mushroom Blue Cheese Crostini

I am sure that you are probably always on the lookout for fresh and easy and delicious appetizers. I recently had a bunch of fresh ingredients in the fridge which were nearing the end of their life. Making yummy dishes to start a meal is super easy when you just think about how foods work together.

It all started with a tomato…. Tomatoes could be the start to so many happy endings!! Bruschetta is a favorite appetizer around here, but I couldn’t go with our regular tomato bruschetta because I also had some blue cheese which had been opened for a few days and needed to get used while still in its peak of life. Blue Cheese pairs perfectly with mushrooms (and bacon – but didn’t have any of that at home on this day, feel free to crumble some bacon into this). When I took all of these ideas into my head, I knew that I could do a delicious variation of a mushroom bruschetta I have made before!

Another great thing about this appetizer   is it can be made ahead of time. Prepare your mixture, toast up your bread and set aside – then at the time to serve, just top the toasts with your delicious stuff and toast it up! Simple appetizers to impress your taste-buds, family, & friends!

Tomato Mushroom Blue Cheese Crostini — 5 Comments

  1. Cream cheese and goat cheese are combined with garlic and fresh chives to create a deliciously creamy and flavorful spread to top toasted slices of baguette. Finish it off with smoked salmon and you’ve got yourself a sophisticated and delicious appetizer that’s perfect for a weeknight at home or casual weekend entertaining.

  2. I love blue cheese and mushrooms. So this is a great twist on the traditional crostini! Actually, though this is an appetizer, sometimes in the heat of the summer….this is just enough for a little meal for me! You’ve inspired me with some great ideas here! : )

    • Anne, I agree with you that I could make a dinner out of this as well!!
