Magnificant Mushroom Toasts

MyCookbook Recipe Database

Recipe Category: Appetizer
Recipe Preparation Level: easy


    These simple toasts — featuring diced mushrooms and onions, sautéed till golden, napped in a rich
    cream cheese and butter sauce, and spread onto dense rye triangles — were a mainstay of my
    winter parties when we lived in Maine. People “in the know” hung around the kitchen so they could
    eat their fill of these, straight from the oven, before they were offered to the other guests and
    promptly disappeared!

    1 tablespoon butter
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    1 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms
    3-ounce package cream cheese
    1 tablespoon mayonnaise
    1/2 teaspoon paprika
    pinch of salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    very thinly sliced dense rye or pumpernickel bread, recipe below*
    additional melted butter

    *Note: If you prepare bread in a party rye loaf pan — one that makes a long, thin loaf about 2 1/2
    inches square — slice the bread into 3/16- to about 1/4-inch thick square (or slightly rectangular)
    slices. If you’re using a “regular” loaf, baked in an 8 1/2 x 4 1/2-inch loaf pan, cut thin slices, then
    cut each slice into four more or less bite-sized triangles.

    Sauté the onions in the butter till soft. Add the mushrooms to the pan, and stir and cook over
    medium heat till the mushrooms give up their liquid and it evaporates. Add the cream cheese, cut in
    chunks, and stir only until the cheese melts. Remove the pan from the heat, and stir in the
    mayonnaise, paprika, salt, and pepper.

    Dip one side of a bread slice or triangle in melted butter. Spread a heaping teaspoon or so of the
    mushroom mixture on the unbuttered side of the bread. Set on an ungreased baking sheet. Repeat
    until you’ve used all the filling.

    Bake the toasts in a preheated 400°F oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Watch closely; these’ll burn if
    you’re not careful. Yield: about 1/2 cup spread, enough for 18 small slices or triangles of bread.
    Note: this recipe is easily doubled.
