Default Mushroom Topped Crostini

Makes 8 servings

2 teaspoon olive oil (1 for frying and the other for brushing the bread - keep separate)
1 cup button mushrooms
2 1/2 cups crimini mushrooms, sliced
1 pound baguette, sliced in 1/2" slices
1/2 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons fresh thyme

Heat the 1 tsp of olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and salt to the oil; stir well. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high; add minced thyme, flour, and pepper, and cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.

Mix the remaining 1 tsp of olive oil with a little bit of water in a small bowl and then brush bread slices lightly with the mixture using a pastry brush.

Bake the bread in 350 degree oven until crisp and brown on both sides. Remove from the oven and rub cut sides of garlic over bread slices. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the mushroom mixture onto each bread slice. Serve warm or at room temperature.
