Shiitake Bruschetta for #FoodieExtravaganza

This month, for #FoodieExtravaganza, Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm is hosting. She picked mushrooms as our theme. Yum I love mushrooms. I had initially hoped to use a variety of wild mushroom, but when it came time to make the dish, I only had shiitake mushrooms at my fingertips.

If you are a blogger and you're interested in joining in the fun, visit us at our Facebook Foodie Extravaganza page. You can also visit our past party submissions on our Pinterest Foodie Extravaganza board . We hope you will enjoy the recipes we are sharing this month.

Just look at all the wonderful Mushroom recipes being shared today!

The key to making this dish is to crisp the mushrooms. Here's How to Crisp Mushrooms

  • mushrooms, crisped
  • bread, thinly sliced (I used a gluten-free baguette for my Love)
  • savory jam (I used My Smoky Bacon Tomato Jam)
  • parmesan cheese, thinly sliced
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper

Lightly toast the bread. Then, assemble: bread, jam, cheese, jam, and mushrooms. That's all there is to it. Sprinkle with salt and pepper just before serving.


  1. Bacon-tomato jam, crispy mushrooms and cheese on crusty bread? I'm in for sure! I could probably eat a whole tray!

  2. Love mushrooms as well and the variety of options on this recipe list!

  3. Nice and easy but they look great. Yum!

  4. Great idea. So simple and yet unique.

  5. Oh so much yumm... that looks delicious.

  6. A wonderful looking bruschetta. I would like a glass of red with it please.

  7. Love bruschetta and your toppings sound absolutely delicious. I definitely need to try bacon tomato jam.

  8. Your bruschetta sounds wonderful! I love the versatiity of bruschetta, and your bacon tomato jam sounds yummy!

  9. Crispy mushrooms! Another way to cook the water out of them. I know I'd adore this, Camilla!

  10. What a Great little appetizer!! Just a perfect combination!

  11. Sounds wonderful. My daughter who is a bruschetta and mushroom lover would gobble this right up!

Caulibits Crni Rižoto (Croatian Black "Risotto") #Whole30

Last week, I participated in the Wine Pairing Weekend event 'New Year, New Wine." I paired Crni Rižoto with Dingac Vinarija’s Pelješac...and you can read my post: here . I was pouring a Croatian wine and decided to make a traditional Croatian dish. Every seafood restaurant in Croatia has a  Crni Rižoto  (black risotto) on its menu.  Crni Rižoto  is risotto dyed black with squid ink; I used cuttlefish ink for the same effect. However, since arborio rice is not Whole30 compliant, I made a version for myself that used caulibits instead of rice. Ingredients 1 C fish stock (or a combination of fish stock and vegetable stock) 1 T olive oil 1 medium shallots, peeled and minced 1 cloves garlic, crushed and minced 1/4 lb shrimp 1/4 lb squid tubes, cleaned and sliced into rings 1/4 lb scallops 1/4 lb clams, scrubbed 1/4 lb mussels, scrubbed 4 C caulibits, or chopped cauliflower 1 T fresh parsley, minced juice and zest from 1 organic lemon 1 t cuttlefish ink

This month the French Winophiles group is looking at affordable wines from Burgundy.  Host Cindy of Grape Experiences wrote: "Burgundy, or Bourgogne, is known for its wines of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir... as well as Aligote, Gamay, Sauvignon, César, Pinot Beurot, Sacy, Melon in lesser quantities. Many of the well-known wines are quite expensive, but there are plenty of values to be found."
