There’s nothing quite like a Christmas canapé. And with party season kicking off, any food that you can eat while holding a drink is a guaranteed winner. Keep your guests 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.
Chicory with Stilton, Walnut & Truffle Honey
These little bites could not be more simple. A canapé your eight-year-old could put together, these can be made in advance, kept in the fridge and brought up to room temperature just as your guests turn up. Crispy chicory and crunchy walnuts nestled next to creamy stilton for a gorgeous texture combo. And that truffle honey is really something special.
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 last 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.
