Smoked Salmon on Rye bread

Smoked Salmon on Rye bread

These Smoked Salmon on Rye bread little beauties are a perfect starter for any meal or simply a lovely drinks canapé I love Smoked Salmon especially on Rye Bread!

And it’s a lovely get ahead snack so you can enjoy the party as well as your guests, bonus is they also look so pretty and really classy!

I serve them in the lounge with champagne on Christmas Day while we open some presents  (as they are served cold you don’t need the oven – you can carry on using that for all the important stuff like the turkey and roast potatoes) This way the starter is out the way and I just seat my guests then for the main event – so easy. I also tend to make these Roquefort Bruchetta with peach and honey too…. so good!

Let me know what nibbles you’ll be making?

I hate all that frozen party stuff – it’s so easy to make your own, so much cheaper and way more tasty, start with these Smoked Salmon on Rye bread

Have fun
