Mushroom Olive Bruschetta

After experimenting with different ingredients and flavor combinations, I came up with this variation on traditional tomato-based bruschetta. I've also used this recipe as a stuffing for chicken breast, and sometimes will add a little feta cheese. You can make it ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator, but be sure to bring it to room temperature before serving—that's how it tastes best! —Colleen Blasetti, Palm Coast, Florida

    Love this because you can make the topping early and then just top the bread when guests arrive - except i ate a lot of the filling before it got to the bread - amazing
