This Spicy and Creamy Wild Mushrooms with Anchovy Bruschetta is a hearty appetizer that looks gourmet but couldn't be easier to make in under 30 minutes. The flavors are deep and rich and are sure to impress even the toughest critics at the dinner table. This recipe tends to pop on to my holiday table year after year, and they’re always the first thing gone. The mushrooms pack a ton of flavor and nutrition and when you add the anchovies, this gourmet appetizer steps it up to the next level. Add in the cream and it becomes an irresistible combination to pile onto toasted bread lightly rubbed with garlic.


  • 4 Cup wild mushroom mix
  • ¾ Cup chopped onion
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 anchovy fillets
  • 2 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 French Baguette, cut into sections on a bias
  • 3 Tbsp melted, unsalted butter
  • ½ Cup heavy cream - we used 1 Tbsp Mascarpone cheese as alternative!
  • parsley, chopped for garnish


  1. In a large Swiss Diamond skillet, sauté the mushrooms and onion in oil for 6 - 7 minutes or until mushrooms are browned. Toss Anchovies and cook until fully broken down. Stir in the cream, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered for 20 - 25 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the baguette slices in a large Swiss Diamond grill pan. Grill the bread until you have grill marks (about 2 - 5 minutes), flip and cook the other side.
  3. Combine melted butter and garlic and brush on the hot toast. Stir the parsley into mushroom mixture, heat through. Spoon about 1 tbsp onto each toast. Serve immediately.
