Want to impress your guests with a simple, but elegant hors d'oeuvre? Then try our upscale bruschetta, which easily goes from your kitchen to a party table in just under 30 minutes. A mixture of shallots, minced garlic, dried shiitake mushrooms, uncooked oyster mushrooms, and chopped walnuts gets combined for an earthy, flavorful topping. Before spooning that combination on the slices of French baguette bread, toast and rub them with garlic. For a finishing touch at the end, sprinkle raw sage that has been thinly sliced on top. Serve the bruschetta immediately, sit back, and enjoy the many glowing compliments you'll definitely receive!
