Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F
  2. On a flat work surface, flatten the slices of bread with a rolling pin to about 1/8" (3mm) thickness; lightly brush the tops with extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Gently press the flattened bread slices into the cups of an ungreased 12-cup muffin pan, overlapping as needed to form cups. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned and cups hold their shape.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a saute pan set over medium heat; add the onion, garlic, mushrooms salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until softened and slightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  5. Add the shrimp and bay scallops and cook until opaque, about 2-3 minutes
  6. Add the chicken broth and white wine and bring to a simmer.

  7. Meanwhile, combine the milk and corn starch together in a small measuring cup and whisk until well combined; add that to the pan and stir well.

  8. Continue to simmer for another minute, until the sauce is thickened, then kill the heat and stir in the chopped parsley and basil, if using.
  9. Place toast cups on serving plates and fill with seafood mixture; serve without delay.
