How to Make the Best Garlic Herb Cheese Canapes
- Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Garlic Herb Cheese Canapes: Boursin or Alouette cheese, sundried tomatoes, fresh chives, crushed red pepper flakes.
- You’ll also need bread rounds, pita chips, crackers or cucumbers for serving.
- Kitchen tools you’ll need: Medium bowl, measuring cups and spoons, sharp knife and cutting board, large silicone spatula or spoon for mixing together.
- When choosing the cheese for the base check the date as this will directly affect the shelf life of the spread once it’s combined.
- The opportunity to make a pretty presentation is here, too. After all, we do eat with our eyes first. So use a piping bag or a plastic zip top bag with the corner snipped off to dollop the cheese onto the cucumber and bread rounds.
- If you prefer, the entire spread can be placed into a pretty bowl and surrounded with the dippers of your choice.
- Once combined, the cheese mixture can be served on seasoned garlic bread rounds, crostini or for your low-carb friends, it’s delicious on cucumber, too. If you like, you can also serve this spread with pita chips or crackers.
- Make these Garlic Herb Cheese Canapes with fresh chives and sundried tomatoes in advance and to put the “e” in easy entertaining.
- Store prepared Garlic Herb Cheese chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. It won’t last quite as long as the date on the package as we’re adding fresh ingredients to the mix. It will keep safely for 3-4 days but it won’t last that long!
