Roasted mushroom crostini with wine and herbs is an easy and elegant party appetizer and ready in 20 minutes!
I've said it before and I'll say it again...there is nothing better than simple and bold flavors! When you have good ingredients, there is not much you need to do, such as with Manchego and roasted pepper stuffed mushrooms. That recipe is only 3 ingredients but packs so much in a small bite.
Wine Roasted Mushrooms
Robust wine, earthy mushrooms, fresh herbs and butter transforms simple mushrooms into something spectacular.
The best part of this roasted mushroom crostini is how EASY it is!
All you have to do is throw some of your favorite mushrooms in a baking dish, add a few glugs of red wine, fresh herbs and a few healthy dots of butter, roast at 400 degrees until mushrooms are tender and you have a beautiful appetizer ready in 20 minutes.
A Few Cooking Tips
- Mushrooms: Use your favorites! Baby portabellas, oyster mushrooms and shitakis are a few I used in this recipe.
- Use a damp cloth or paper towel to clean any debris off the mushrooms. If the stems are hard, you can cut the end off or just remove the stem if you prefer.
- This recipe uses red wine, but white wine or even sherry would be a fantastic substitute.
- Herbs: This is such a versatile dish, use one or a combination of rosemary, thyme and oregano.

Roasted Mushroom Crostini with Wine and Herbs
- 3 cups Wild mushrooms cleaned and cut in half if large
- 3 sprigs of fresh thyme leaves removed and roughly chopped

- Roast mushrooms in oven for 20 minutes, or until the mushrooms begin to break down and soften.
- While mushrooms are roasting, make the crostini by slicing the baguette on a bias and lightly toasting in the oven or in a grill pan.
- Once mushrooms are done, spoon mushroom mixture over toasted bread and top with fresh parsley and coarse sea salt.

Mushrooms are my favorite vegetable so I can't wait to try these! Simple but elegant. Great!
Thanks so much Lindsey! I love mushrooms too!
Samantha, this looks delish! I'm going to make 50 of these toasts for a wedding reception. I see your recipe says that it serves 4, how many crostini are you figuring is a serving according to this recipe? Thank you!
Hi Jana! It depends how long the baguette is too. I was using a classic french baguette and I was thinking about 2 crostini/person, give or take, so about 8 crostini per baguette, roughly. Don't quote me, but maybe start with 5 or 6 baguettes and a few pounds of mushrooms? This sounds like a fun cooking project!
Thank you so much! I start the shopping tomorrow so your reply came at the perfect thyme (lol) - this helped a bunch. I know the guests are going to love them. If I don't eat all the roasted mushrooms...
Samantha, these were delicious. I forgot the butter, unfortunately, but they were still very good. Everyone loved them! I'll be making these again very soon!
