This Oyster Mushroom and Goat Cheese Bruschetta recipe is easy to make. The rich flavors of the ingredients don’t need much help, so I kept it pretty simple. Since it is quick to prepare, it’s perfect for adding a course to special meals, when crunched for time.
I personally would serve a creamy chardonnay with this, but a mellower red would compliment the mushrooms while not fighting with the cheese too much.

- Set the bruschetta toasts aside on a towel to retain crispness.
