The mushroom flavor is great, but I actually found the rest of the duxelles to be bland - needed more garlic and herbs and salt. Loved the consistency though, and like another rater's suggestion to simply serve with crackers instead of toasting the baguette.

Duxelles (dook-SEHL) is a mixture of finely chopped mushrooms cooked to the consistency of a pâté. This version uses shiitakes and creminis, but you can use any combination of mushrooms.
Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 2 bread slices and 2 tablespoons duxelles)
