Thanksgiving came and went faster than I could blink – I was surprised that the day actually went pretty smooth. I actually remembered to thaw my turkey ahead of time this year (which is huge because I always forget until the day before..) and I had everything I needed from my farmers market to make all the special things my kids and extended family wanted to eat.
I did spend most of the morning in the kitchen making food – starting with apple and pumpkin pies, followed by throwing that turkey in the oven, our favorite broccoli salad, and mashed sweet potatoes. Our Instant Pot got a really good workout – but my family knows that when it’s Turkey Day, I mean business: stay out of my kitchen.
Give me space to cook, don’t get in my way and allow me to do my ‘thing while I conquer the world – as I pulled everything out of the fridge, I contemplated what I was going to make for snacking as the day progressed.. and this appetizer did the trick.
I guess I could have bought some bread at the store, but who wants to go to the store on Thanksgiving day? Not me – and definitely not with kids in tow. With just a few ingredients, this bread came to realization and the entire house smelled amazing.
We pulled out some white button mushrooms from the farmers market, washed them well, dried thoroughly and sliced them up to saute in butter. You could also use coconut oil or olive oil, too – throw in a little chopped purple onion for zing.
Once the bread was done, I used a serrated knife to slice thin rounds, drizzled with a little olive oil and some seasoning and toasted in the oven for a brief 10-13 minutes. Once done, I topped with sauteed mushrooms and knew I was in heaven. This appetizer was far too amazing to keep to myself.
The rest of the family thought it was delicious too – and before I knew it, both loaves of toasted bread topped with mushrooms and onions were gone …..
I certainly hope you love this as much as we did!
