Canapes With Garlic-Onion Cream Cheese & Avocado Recipe!


I adore Pinterest. I love how I can easily search up different DIY's and recipes, or get inspiration for outfits and event planning. This was one of the very first Pinterest recipes that I decided to try and it turned out to be a success (the picture justifies how it turned out aesthetically haha)! I made this appetizer for a friend's surprise birthday party a while back and it was well loved. People have been asking me for this recipe so I'm just going to share it right here with all of you!

If you don't know what canapes are, they're basically small pieces of bread or pastry with some sort of topping. The topping for this recipe is delicious, and you'll soon get to try it out for yourselves!

Canapes with Garlic-Onion Cream Cheese & Avocado

Servings:
10

Ingredients:
1 French baguette
2 cups cream cheese (preferably softened)
2 cloves of garlic (finely chopped)
1 avocado
lemon juice (to keep avocado from browning)
ground black pepper
garlic salt
1/4 of red onion (finely chopped)

How To Make:
1. Slice the baguette into thin slices, a little less than 1 cm thick. You can cut the bread diagonally to get bigger slices.
2. Cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, spoon the avocado flesh out of its shell, and cut each half into thin slices.
3. Have the garlic and red onion finely chopped into small pieces.
4. Mash the cream cheese, garlic, and red onion together so it becomes evenly distributed in the paste. Add some extra flavour by seasoning with your desired amount of garlic salt.
5. Spread enough of the cream cheese paste so that it generously covers the top of each piece of bread.
6. Top each bread with avocado. Sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice on the avocados to prevent browning. Sprinkle some ground black pepper on each.

Now wasn't that easy to make? Enjoy your canapes! I would love to see how yours turn out. Tweet me a picture or Instagram it and tag me. My username for both is @desireelaw. Enjoy the rest of your night!

Until next time, Des
