There’s nothing quite like a Christmas canapé. As with everything this year we’re having to do things slightly different, and unfortunately this time it’s the turn of the well-loved party season. However the show must go on, and whether it’s Christmas day or New Years Ever, any food that you can eat while holding a drink is a guaranteed winner. Keep yourselves nibbling, drinking and chatting with these delicious Christmas canapé recipes.
Smoked Trout & Ricotta Pinwheels
Meet the grown-up version of the pinwheels you used to get at birthday parties. But instead of unravelling white bread, we’ve made these pinwheels with herby pancakes. With smoked trout from the amazing Secret Smokehouse and a layer of ricotta for creaminess, these are deliciously moreish.
Hasselback Potatoes with Blue Cheese & Crispy Sage
Slightly crisp, buttery and warm these hasselback potatoes are our favourite. Cheese oozing in between the cuts and a crispy bite of sage on top, are you drooling yet? They’re a canapé that need to be served immediately so that your guests get them at peak cheese-melt moment.
Chilli & Ginger Crab Cakes with Lime Crème Fraîche
As part of our Made by Farmdrop Christmas canapé collection, these moreish mini crab cakes are flavoured with aromatic ginger, chilli and lime, then topped with colourful chilli and micro coriander. For even easier entertaining (and no waste) this Christmas, you can also purchase this recipe as a Recipe Kit with all the ingredients pre-weighed and measured for you.
Because who doesn’t love light, cheesy pastry? Think, strong Cheddar and choux pastry combined to make the tastiest of cheese puffs. Delicious, easy-to-make and sure to be a hit with guests of all ages.
English Brie On Toast with Radicchio & Truffle Honey
We told you that truffle honey was good… So good in fact that we’re bringing it back for this recipe. We normally whip this up for a mid-week simple supper, but cut them into four and you’ve got yourself a canapé. Like a melting dream, the creamy Baron Bigod from family Fen Farm Dairy is paired with the bitterness of radicchio and the sweetness of truffle honey and hits every tastebud in your mouth. Yes please, we’ll take another.
Slow Roasted Balsamic Tomato Bruschettas with Herb Smash & Pistachios
This vibrant vegan canapé combines crispy toasts with squidgy slow roasted tomatoes and a vibrant herb and pistachio topping. For hassle free entertaining, prep the tomatoes and bruschetta toasts in advance for last minute assembly. This recipe can also be purchased as a Recipe Kit this Christmas.
