Shittake mushroom crostini

My mom brought me four boxes of shittake mushrooms during her visit this past weekend, but they weren't exactly fresh. In fact, they were starting to go bad the very next day. But I couldn't very well let a bunch of shittake mushrooms go to waste, now could I?

I sliced them all, sauteed them gently in a little butter and fresh thyme until browned, and sprinkled with salt.

I then took some homemade bread, sliced it, and toasted it.

Then I layered the mushrooms on the toasty bread and sprinkled it with truffle oil.

Best appetizer ever.
