Default Tomato and Feta Cheese Crostini

Makes 24 servings

24 slices french bread baguette, sliced 1/2" thick
1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley, chopped
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, not packed in oil

Place tomatoes and rosemary in a 1-quart casserole; add water to cover. Cover with casserole lid, and microwave at HIGH for 5 to 7 minutes or until water boils. Let stand, covered, 10 minutes. Drain well.

In a food processor bowl with the knife blade in position, add tomatoes and rosemary, and process for about 10 seconds or until chunky.

Brush oil evenly on bread slices using a pastry brush and sprinkle with onion powder. Spread tomato mixture evenly over bread slices; top each slice with about 1 teaspoon feta cheese. Place on a baking sheet; bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.

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.
