Recipes | Entertaining | Cocktail Party Budet Friendly Menu | Beef Canapes | Roasted Red Pepper & Blue Cheese Canapes

Canapes are the quintessential hors d'oeuvres.  You can pile any tasty combination on a slice of bread (or puff pastry, or flat bread, etc.).  These are some of my favorites...

Roasted Beef & Horseradish Cream Canapes
25 canapes

2 baguettes, sliced into 1/2 inch toasts
1 packages of cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons of horseradish
1 tablespoon of dijon mustard
salt & pepper
1 pound of Roast Beef, sliced
flat leaf parsley

Mix together cream cheese, horseradish, dijon, salt & pepper.  Spread the mixture onto each slice of bread.  Top with a thin slice of beef and sprinkling of parsley, salt & pepper.

Roasted Red Pepper & Blue Cheese Canapes
24 canapes

2 baguettes, sliced into 1/2 inch pieces
1 large jar of roasted red peppers, sliced
8 ounces of blue cheese, crumbled

On a baking sheet, spread out the slices of bread.  Pile the peppers and blue cheese on each piece.  Put them in the oven under the low broiler for 2-3 minutes just until the blue cheese melts.  Sprinkle with parsley and fresh black pepper.

These Roasted Beef & Horseradish and Roasted Red Pepper & Blue Cheese Canapes are part of my "Budget Friendly Holiday Cocktail Party Menu."  For all of the recipes and tips for creating a memorable, low-cost cocktail party, visit the "Budget Friendly Holiday Cocktail Party Menu" Page!
