Canapés

It's a simple known fact, food brings people together. So go ahead and gather your friends and family for a night of entertaining and great food. Leave them impressed with these beautifully presented and easy to assemble canapes.

Directions

Slice French bread into 1/2” thick rounds.
Mix cream cheese, horseradish and mayonnaise into a smooth soft spread.
Spread a thin layer in the middle on each piece of bread. Avoid spreading over the edges. Fill a small piping bag with a small star tube for piping with the rest of the spread.
To assemble:
Salmon: Egg slice topped with a small rosette of cream cheese mixture to hold the salmon in place. Cut salmon slices in half and place on top of eggs and finish with fresh dill.
Shrimp: Egg slice, repeat cream cheese mixture. Cut shrimp in half. Fold together and place on top of the egg. Finish with a dip of chili sauce.
Brie: Slice tomato. Cut cheese to fit bread. Finish with a quarter kiwi slice.
Cream cheese: Lettuce, pipe cheese rosette and finish with raspberry/ fruit.
Prosciutto ham: Pickle slice with dip of cheese spread. Add half a slice of ham folded on top and finish with a radish slice.
Smoked oysters: Cucumber, dip of cheese spread. Add oyster and a little cheese spread topped with a sliced olive.
