I’m thrilled to share another recipe from my incredible food contributor, Sarah of The Homemade Haus. If you don’t already follow her, you’re going to rectify that immediately.

Crostini with Garlic Sauteed Chanterelles-8I picked up chanterelles on a whim at Costco. I needed a little something different than my normal cartful of apples, salad greens, and chicken. Chanterelles felt fancy and special, the perfect way to break up the monotony of everyday cooking. I also knew my toddlers wouldn’t eat them,  which made my purchase pleasantly impractical and decadent.Crostini with Garlic Sauteed Chanterelles-2

Cooking a dish that sounds fancy doesn’t mean confining yourself to the kitchen for the entire day. When a particular ingredient needs to play a starring role, I don’t like to mess with it too much. This recipe for Crostini with Garlic Sautéed Chanterelles requires only a few ingredients and a simple preparation. The mushrooms have a rich, earthy, and almost fruity flavor. Add a crunch of toasted bread, brightness of thyme, and warmth of sautéed garlic to round it out.

  1. 3­-4 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  2. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  3. 3­-4 sprigs of thyme, plus more for garnish
  4. 16 ounces chanterelle mushrooms, large ones cut in half lengthwise
  5. 1 baguette, cut into 3⁄4 inch slices
  6. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. Heat 2­-3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium­high heat. Add the garlic and and thyme and cook for about 30­-60 seconds until the garlic is fragrant, being careful not to burn the garlic.
  2. Add the mushrooms in a single layer and cook for about 3­-4 minutes without stirring until the bottom side is golden and browned. Sprinkle with a few pinches of salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium. Turn the mushrooms over and cook for about 5­-7 more minutes, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms are tender to your liking. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  4. While the chanterelles are cooking, set your oven rack as close to your oven’s broiler flame as possible. Preheat the broiler (to high if you have a high/low setting). Lay the baguette slices out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Drizzle with a tablespoon or two of olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
