Recipe - Wild Mushroom & Brie Crostini

So as a housewife, I've made sure that I don't succumb to daytime TV - but there is 1 show I find myself watching - The Social.  I saw this recipe on it last week, and it was so super quick and easy I had to try it.  Plus it will make a great potluck type appy, for when you want to serve something to your guests - without taking up a lot of time or effort :)
Wild Mushroom & Brie Crostini

Prep Time - 5 minutes
Cook Time - 10-12 minutes
Total Time - 15-17 minutes

1/2 baguette roll (I used multigrain) cut in pieces
1 1/2 cups wild mushrooms cut lengthwise
1/2 cup red onion thinly sliced in strips
1 tbsp. olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
1 small wheel of brie cut in half, then cut into strips
** I also added a pinch of dried cilantro/jalapeño for each baguette piece**

Preheat oven to 350 degrees - and place cut baguette pieces on baking sheet. 
In a saucepan, combine your mushrooms, onions, oil, salt & pepper and cook over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes until soft and slightly caramelized.
Place a spoonful of your sautéed mixture on top of each baguette piece.
Then top your baguette with your brie pieces.  (Then I added my dried cilantro/jalapeño mix)
Put baguette in the oven for about 5 minutes (or until you see the brie start to bubble on the crostini)
Remove and eat!  Your guests will love this, and - it took hardly any effort which gives you more time to drink wine and socialize :)
