Talk about a decadent appetizer for any occasion that is oh so easy to make! Mushrooms sautéed in butter, garlic and thyme then covered in fontina cheese and broiled until gooey and delicious then spooned over toasted bread. Absolutely incredible!


2T butter
6 crimini mushrooms, sliced
1/4t thyme
1 garlic clove, minced
8 oz fontina, cubed


Preheat oven broiler to 500°F.

Sauté mushrooms in butter on med-high heat in a small oven proof skillet, about 2 minutes then stir in the thyme and garlic with a small pinch of salt, cook another 2-3 minutes. Top with fontina then throw it under the broiler for about 10 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn, depending on how close your oven rack is to the broiler, it could melt quicker.

Serve while its still hot with toasted baguette or sourdough.
