Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Crostini with Feta and Roasted Garlic Cheese Spread
My lovely neighbor Cheryl has a delicious recipe for a Feta Cheese and Roasted Garlic Spread (click here for link) that I love. I used her base recipe and twisted it a bit to make it my own. We were at our friend’s house on the Trask River (near Tillamook, Oregon) this weekend enjoying some downtime. I wanted to make a tasty appetizer while my friend Currie made a delicious dinner of stuffed pork chops and roasted asparagus. I did half of them with feta cheese and half with goat cheese. These caramelized onion and mushroom crostini with feta and roasted garlic cheese spread were devoured quickly and they were a huge hit with everyone.
Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Crostini with Feta and Roasted Garlic Cheese Spread:
- 1/2 cup of feta cheese
- 1/2 cup of sour cream
- 1/2 head of roasted garlic, chopped (click here for recipe)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 baguette, sliced thinly
- 1/2 lb mushrooms, white or cremini, sliced
- 1/2 sweet yellow onion, sliced thinly
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp butter
How to Make Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Crostini with Feta and Roasted Garlic Cheese Spread
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine feta cheese, sour cream, 1/2 head of roasted garlic, salt, and pepper to taste and mix thoroughly.
Place the baguette slices on a baking sheet and spray the tops with olive oil cooking spray. Cook for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside.
In a large skillet, heat 1/2 tbsp olive oil and 1/2 tbsp butter over medium heat. Add onion and saute for 15-20 minutes until lightly caramelized. Remove from pan and set aside.
Re-heat the pan over medium-high heat adding the remaining 1/2 tbsp olive oil and 1/2 tbsp butter. Add mushrooms and saute, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
Add the onions back into the pan with the mushrooms and heat through; season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.
Spread the feta mixture evenly onto the crostini then top with a spoonful of mushrooms and onions. Eat & enjoy!

- 1/2 cup of goat cheese

These look very good, Pam. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I love feta cheese and this will give me a new way to use it.
I StumbledUpon your recipe and can’t wait to try it….i love that you put a printable link to it. Thanks for sharing. I really like you blog…
This makes a beautiful drinks nibble…much better than nuts & chips. Thank you!
I’m sorry to have to say it but … OH! MY GOD! I almost fell off my chair: everything my tummy loves twirled onto one little piece of toast!
That’s a keeper for sure!
These look so delicious!
Would it be rude if I invited myself over? That looks sooo good!!
Y.U.M. – what a gorgeous recipe. Those toasts look amazing.
Wow, those look incredible. Bruschetta, but with a different take. I will try these next time I have feta in the house. Nothing like caramlized onions and mushrooms, which are my favorite part of a phillysteak. Thank you for the recipe!
Those sound so good! What a great combination of flavours!
Gosh, Pam, my list of “I must try this” from your blog is getting longer and longer.
But that does look and sound too munchable for words.
This does look and sound so good. Mushrooms, cheese,onions and roasted garlic..YUM!
OMG. These look and sound delicious. LOVE roasted garlic and mushrooms on Crostini and the herb cheese spread base sounds fantastic! 🙂
