1 tbsp
balsamic vinegar
1 1/4 cups

  • In a large frying pan set over medium heat, heat oil. Add mushrooms and cranberries and stir-fry just until well browned and liquid has evaporated from pan, from 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in thyme, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Stir in 1 cup (250 mL) cheese. Use right away, leave at room temperature for up to 2 hours or refrigerate for up to 1 day.
  • Before spooning onto toasted baguette slices, bring mixture to room temperature or heat in microwave on medium for 2 minutes. Mound a heaping spoonful (about 2 tbsp/30 mL) on top of each slice. Sprinkle evenly with remaining cheese. Place on middle rack of oven under broiler until cheese melts, from 2 to 3 minutes.
