  • Yield: Serves 4 1x


  • 4 thick slices of crusty bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, halved
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 fresh bay leaves
  • 8 oz small wild mushrooms, halved or roughly chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 16 oz fresh mozzarella, pulled into half inch pieces


  1. Rub bread with olive oil and garlic. Broil until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  2. In an oven-safe deep skillet, melt butter with herbs over medium-high heat. Saute mushrooms, seasoned with salt and pepper, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat. Cover with pieces of mozzarella and broil, 4-5 minutes until melted. Serve immediately with garlic toast.
