Mushroom and Tomato Crustini

 So what can you do with 5 ingredients??? Make something AWESOME! This also takes only 10 minutes to make!

I also make this with different cheese, whatever I happen to have. Mozzarella, Provolone, Havarti, Munster, Monterrey Jack, Queso Quesadilla, really any cheese that oozes when melted works great!

2 pieces of good bread, toasted
1 garlic clove
Mozzarella cheese, sliced, enough to cover the bread
1 tomato, sliced
3-4 small mushrooms, sliced
(optional - basil, sliced)
salt, pepper


Rub garlic clove on bread
 Once you have your bread toasted, rub the warm bread on one side with the garlic clove. This will give just a bit of garlic flavor.

Into the toaster oven broiler
Then top the garlic side of the bread with the cheese, tomatoes and mushrooms. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Then place the bread on a cookie sheet or foil.

Put the topped bread under the broiler for 5-10 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and brown. I use my toaster over, but if you use your regular oven make sure TO WATCH CLOSELY.

DONE!!!! I have basil growing in my apartment so I top this with it, but it is just as good without it! Also try a drizzle of balsamic vinegar if you have it.
