27 Gorgeous, Celebratory Canapé Recipes
Christmas may be over, but party season is still in full swing (and will be straight through summer, according to us.)New Year's Eve is just a few days away, and after that you've got your mid-January Let's Celebrate Something So We Don't Just Sleep For Six Months affairs to host and attend. We're here to help improve your fancy snack arsenal. Winter is definitely the season to whip up group-oriented comfort food, like baked brie, party dips, and naturally, nachos, but sometimes when we're feeling a little shlumpy, we crave something a little more upscale. We are referring, of course, to canapé recipes.
Canapés have picked up a lot of different definitions over the years. Some people use the word canapé to refer to any small appetizer you can eat in one or two bites with your fingers. Others insist that it must be a decorative appetizer on a round, square or rectangle of toasted or fried bread. For our purposes today, we're thinking of a canapé as something pretty to look at, easy to eat, usually on a toast or cracker, but not always (since we know there are party guests who just don't want to eat a piece of bread with every bite). Here are 27 canapé recipes to help you end 2014 on a classy note and start 2015 with a little extra glam. 'Cuz you deserve it.
“Spicy black pepper crisps made with a touch of Courvoiser are the perfect base for a rich caramelized tomato, almond and herb compote. There is also a twist of dark raisins steeped in Cognac!”
Kelsey Nixon's version of deviled eggs has us feeling some type of way. The candied bacon adds that sweet yet fatty flavor that we just cannot resist!
- 4 slices bacon
- 1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
- ¼ cup butter
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 eggs
- 1 ¼ cups sour cream
- ¼ cup cream cheese, softened
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Fry bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until crispy, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Let cool 10 minutes. Crumble and set aside.
Roll out pastry crust into a circle using a lightly floured rolling pin. Line a 9-inch pie pan with crust. Prick holes into the base of the dough using a fork.
Bake crust in the preheated oven on the middle rack for 15 minutes.
Remove pastry crust from the oven. Brush crust with beaten egg. Return crust to the oven and bake 5 minutes more.
Heat butter in a pan over medium heat and stir in onion. Cook and stir until onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and continue cooking and stirring until onion is very tender and dark brown, about 40 minutes more.
Whisk 2 eggs together in a bowl using a fork. Add sour cream and cream cheese and beat using an electric mixer until well combined. Beat in salt and pepper.
Spread caramelized onions with remaining butter onto pastry crust. Sprinkle with 1/2 the Cheddar cheese. Place crumbled bacon evenly over the top. Pour egg mixture over bacon. Top with remaining Cheddar cheese.
Bake quiche in the preheated oven until golden and fluffy, about 30 minutes. Let cool 10 minutes before serving.

Did you like the Hawaiian words I used there? Hawaii is so much apart of me now, I even speak some of the language.
I am obsessed with the little sweet peppers that you can buy in a bag from the store. Every time I make a Costco run, I pick up one of those big bags full of them and use them for all kinds of stuff.
They&rsquore great in salads, sliced up to dip in hummus, chopped for all kinds of dinner recipes, and NOW&hellip. you can stuff them with cheesy bacon goodness, too!
These Cheesy Bacon Stuffed Peppers are sooooo good. The filling is made with two kinds of cheese, bacon, green onions, Worcestershire sauce, and a little garlic powder.
Fill them up, bake them in the oven, then devour!
This recipe will make a dozen stuffed peppers, so if you&rsquore feeding a crowd and want more than that, just double the recipe. Enjoy and have a great weekend, y&rsquoall!

Goat's cheese rounds with honey, walnut, rocket and umeboshi
Christmas day can be one of the most stressful time of the year for home cooks. Make your life easier with Danny’s delicious goat’s cheese canapé recipe, which features sweet and sour pickled plums and can be whipped up in a matter of minutes.
Hide story show story
Around this time of year, I do like to dust off a few old Dad jokes that have been hanging up in the wardrobe. The best and most festive one is to announce to the family on Christmas Day that ‘I am just nipping into the kitchen to finish preparing the canapés.’ And then pop back into the room five minutes later with a tray, stacked with tinned marrowfat peas. ‘Here comes the can o’peas!’ I usually boom as I enter, brimming with pride at my fantastic, punny joke. Sadly, no one bats an eyelid these days. Because they saw it coming and quite frankly, it’s all getting a bit boring now. That’s according to my sister that is.
Like my rubbish jokes, Christmas Day can sometimes need a reboot, especially after the frantic 6AM tear up around the tree. Despite the tea and bacon sandwiches that follow, adrenaline levels tend to drop towards late morning, so the arrival of canapés at noon are often just the ticket.
But you don’t want to mess around for too long making them either. All you really want is to go bish bash bosh and get out of that kitchen as soon as possible, leaving whoever is delegated to cooking Christmas dinner to it. Which is still down to the grandparents in my family (i.e. my folks or in-laws) but I will step up one year. Promise.
Coming back then to the necessity for speedy preparation of tidbits, these goat's cheese rounds are great to knock up because they are easy, look the part and taste rather good in my honest opinion. All flavour combinations are catered for with these canapés. Creamy, nutty, sweet, pepper and salt, all to be taken with one swift bite. The umeboshi will almost certainly be the one ingredient to raise eyebrows though. These Japanese pickled plums are often attributed to curing hangovers, due I suspect to the inherent salt and sour kick they deliver. Should you find yourself feeling delicate over the next couple of weeks, one of these withered plums popped into the mouth will bring you to your senses in no time, I guarantee you that.
They are to be used rather sparsely though and for these cheesy disks, they make up the cherry aspect of a holly leaf. Make these and you will soon be forgiven, for whatever rubbish jokes that are uttered on Christmas Day. Because they are coming. You’ve got to pull those crackers yet.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you The First Appetizer I Ever Made. A STAPLE of entertaining in my first apartment, bacon stuffed mushrooms are still one of my absolute favorite go-to easy appetizers to serve guests.
I ate a shameful number of these while taking these pictures
Fancy enough for a holiday appetizer but casual and hearty enough for a football snack, I'm certain you'll find yourself making this little stuffed mushroom appetizer recipe just as often as I do.
Right before going into the oven
Another great thing about this easy, cheesy, bacon mushroom appetizer is that you can make the filling ahead of time, stuff the mushrooms, and pop them into the oven right before your guests arrive.

How To Make Yummy Mac and Cheese
Step 1: Put noodles, water, and salt into the Instant Pot and push a few buttons.
Step 2: Stir in butter, cheese, and milk.
Step 3: That’s it. There is no step 3.
But seriously: my number one goal with Pinch of Yum is to connect with you and share recipes that you’ll actually make and actually love, and THIS! I am confident that this is one that you can and will actually make.
And absolutely one that you will love, assuming you’re into cheese?
Also: my specific Instant Pot is the Instant Pot DUO60 but I have made this in several types (“the old ones” and “the new ones” both) and it’s great all around.
