This easy and elegant appetizer for Roasted Mushroom and French Goat Cheese crostini is perfect for entertaining and especially around the holidays.



  • 1 baguette, thinly sliced on a bias
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for brushing
  • 2 lbs assorted mushrooms (I used crimini, oyster, and shiitake), sliced
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • salt and pepper
  • 8 ounces Florette French goat cheese, softened
  • Truffled honey or wildflower honey, for drizzling


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brush baguette slices with olive oil, then arrange on a sheet pan in a single layer. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crisp.
  3. Toss mushrooms with 2 tablespoons olive oil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Spread out on a sheet pan in an even layer, then bake until browned and caramelized, about 25 minutes. Let cool.
  4. To assemble, smear about a tablespoon of Florette French goat cheese (including the rind) on each crostini, then top with mushrooms. Drizzle with honey, sprinkle with more thyme leaves to garnish. Serve immediately.
