Serving canapes prior to dinner is occasionally suitable too. Do not presume that guests can merrily wait for some time to eat - if they’ve come from work, they are perhaps hungry. With something ready to serve before dinner, even if it is just a big bowl of warmed up almonds or other nuts, would also give you more time to finish matters in the kitchen. If you’re going to create appetizers, then it’s crucial that they fit with whatever you’ll be serving, and should not be too filling as to spoil everybody’s appetite.
Here are two easy canapé recipes you can use:
Handy Onion Canape
The ingredients are almost always available in your pantry. It may sound ordinary, but the flavor may just pleasantly surprise you.
- Place some onion rings, or thinly sliced green onions on Melba toast rounds or on any tasty cracker.
- Put a small glob of mayonnaise on each toast and cook them in a broiler until the mayonnaise sizzles.
4 – 6 chopped green onions
Coarsely ground pepper
- In a bowl, mix the tuna, onions, and mayonnaise. Add ingredients a little at a time until you achieve the right thickness. Then add ground pepper according to taste.
- You may put this mix on round toasts or biscuits and broil them or you may use it as a dip with more mayonnaise added.
