Make a two-step Italian "app" in just 20 minutes.
can (8-oz size) drained Green Giant™ mushroom pieces and stems
cup pitted kalamata or ripe olives
tablespoons capers, drained
clove garlic, sliced
tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
tablespoon balsamic vinegar
slices French bread, toasted
In food processor, mix mushrooms, olives, capers and garlic. Cover; process using quick on-and-off pulses until finely chopped. Add oil and vinegar; process just until mixed (do not overprocess).
Spread mushroom mixture on toasted bread. Cut slices in half.
If you already have your grill going, use it to toast the bread for this recipe, too.
For a warm appetizer, place the topped bread on the grill for 1 to 2 minutes. Cut the slices in half after heating them.
Make the mushroom mixture several hours ahead; cover and refrigerate. Toast the bread in advance, and top it off just before serving.
Add small curls of fresh Parmesan cheese and fresh marjoram leaves to the tops of these tangy treats.
