Brie and Mushroom Toasts

Michael and I made these yummy bites last night and enjoyed them while we watched tv. Here's the recipe (please note that these amounts are approximations as I just threw this together and didn't really measure):

Brie and Mushroom Toasts
Ten toasts

10 slices of French baguette, sliced thin
10 slices of Brie, cut to fit baguette slices
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1 cup (+/-) sliced mushrooms, chopped
2T butter
1T olive oil
Splash of wine, I used Chardonnay
Salt and pepper to taste

Lightly toast the french bread slices in the oven or toaster oven.

Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute onion in butter and olive oil for a few minutes. Then add chopped mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Saute a few minutes more and then add some wine. Let the alcohol cook off for another few minutes.

To assemble, take a piece of the toasted bread, top it with a slice of Brie and then a spoonful of the mushroom mixture. Place assembled toasts on a baking sheet and place back in oven to melt the cheese - 10-15 minutes.
