Tuscan Mushroom Crostini

I love COBS Bread….I know what you’re thinking…”they’re making you say that”……NO. Ever since I tried their white chocolate ginger buns over Christmas…it was love at first bite.  YUM!

Today I bought one of their baguette so that I could make up a few new crostini recipes.  I was a bit worried that they would flop but they didn’t.  I am so excited to have 2 new recipes that would be perfect for camping season or our next dinner party.  I am posting one recipe here & I’ll post the other another day as WordPress doesn’t want me to post both.  You can find out more about COBS on their Facebook page.

First off…how to make a crostini:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Thinly slice a baguette on an angle.
    3. Brush both sides with olive oil.
    4. Bake until the crostini are crispy throughout…about 15 minutes.
