Ingredients

1/3 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1 (6-ounce) package baby portabella mushrooms, sliced 1/4-inch

1 teaspoon garlic powder

12 (3/4-inch thick) slices French bread

1/2 cup purchased refrigerated pesto

3 ounces (3/4 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat broiler.

  2. STEP 2

    Melt 2 tablespoons butter in skillet until sizzling; add mushrooms and garlic powder. Cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat. Set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Spread 1 side of each bread slice with remaining butter. Place, buttered-side up, onto ungreased baking sheet. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 30 seconds or until lightly toasted. Remove from broiler.

  4. STEP 4

    Turn bread slices over. Spread untoasted sides evenly with pesto, spreading to completely cover bread slices. Top evenly with mushrooms and cheese. Continue broiling 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.

Tip #1

- Substitute your favorite fresh mushrooms for the portobella mushrooms.

Tip #2

- Look for refrigerated pesto in the refrigerated pasta section of your supermarket.
