This is the perfect simple party recipe; you can make cheese spread ahead of time, and simply make up your canapes when you are ready to serve. My sister in-law Natasha shared this delicious recipe with me. Whenever we have parties at our mother in-laws house, she makes them, and they are the HIT!!! Kids love them, well……, adults also…..
These can be topped with chicken instead of shrimp, choose your favorite cheese… You have lots of options here.
Makes about 25 Canapes
2 baguettes, sliced into 1/2 toasts
1 (12 ounce) package cooked shrimp, drained and roughly chopped
1/2 package of cream cheese, softened
2 Tbsp. Sour Cream
2 Tbsp. Heavy Cream
1/3 cup mayonnaise
4 scallions, chopped fine
2 Tbsp. Italian parsley, chopped
Salt and pepper
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup freshly grated Mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 450F.
Mix together cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, heavy cream, scallions and parsley. Season with salt and pepper; add chopped shrimp and mix well. On a baking sheet, spread out the slices of bread. Pile the mixture onto each slice of bread. Top with Mozzarella and Parmesan grated cheese. Bake in oven until golden brown and cheese is melted for about 12-13 minutes.
