Wild Mushroom Crostini with Prosciutto and Truffle Oil



mushroom crostini 1 Well it’s Sunday! Another week has come and gone and we all survived here in my household. This recipe is really so simple to make and quick! It may not seem like a traditional Sunday brunch item but throw a poached egg on and you’re in breakfast heaven. I wasn’t feeling the egg today so that’s why it isn’t there. The combination of crunchy baguette and garlic-y golden mushrooms with prosciutto and truffles is so good that even the smell of it makes my mouth water!! The better the prosciutto the better the finished product. If you’re feeling even a little more extravagant, add shaved black or white truffles (might be a very pricey brunch at approx. $400 for a white truffle), but hey whatever works for you!
