Smoked Salmon Rye bread Canapés

Smoked Salmon Rye bread Canapés

These Smoked Salmon Rye bread Canapés are little beauties, a perfect starter for any meal.  Or simply a lovely drinks canapé, I love Smoked Salmon especially on Rye Bread! So why not make your canapés? 

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!

Or why not makes these Pate Whirls, Make them ahead and pop them in the freezer and chick them in the oven and bake from frozen?!

Let me know what nibbles you’ll be making? These Canapés are so lovely and homemade – what’s not to love?

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 Canapés, don’t buy them, make them!

Have fun
