This is an easy and tasty version of canapes with egg and chives  – little tea sandwiches. If you have leftover eggs from Easter, whip ’em out and make these canapes. They are so simple, I’m embarrassed to call this a recipe… It’s an idea and a darn good one!

I’ve completed my first semester of nursing school!! Pharmacology – I will not miss you! I am so thankful to God for giving me a brain like a sponge. It’s amazing how much the human brain can absorb!

I probably learned more in 1 semester of nursing school than in all 4 years of business school. Nursing is a different world with a language all its own. So, I’m doing a little celebration dance (internally, since I have zero dancing skills). This calls for celebration, with canapes of course!

I thought I’d post something to mark the passing of my first semester. I made these egg and chive crostini a couple of weeks ago and forgot to post them. I’m really making ceviche tonight (now that’s what I call party food!). 

Ingredients for Canapes with Eggs and Chives:

6 oz package “The Laughing Cow” Original Creamy Swiss flavor cheeses (8 wedges in a package)
2 to 3 garlic cloves (add more or less depending on preference)
2 Tbsp real mayo
1 long baguette, sliced about 1/4″ to 1/3″ thick
2 Tbsp butter, melted
2-3 hard-boiled eggs
3-4 Tbsp fresh chives, chopped (parsley also makes a great garnish)

How to Make Canapes:

Preheat the oven to 350 ˚ F.
1. Slice the bread in to half inch slices.  Place them on a baking sheet and lightly brush both sides with melted butter.

2. Bake 5 minutes, or until they are just starting to golden. Do the ”poke” test with your finger to make sure they are still soft in the center. Let these cool to room temperature. It’s ok if they are still a little warm when spreading.

3.Unwrap the laughing cow cheese and place in small bowl. Peel and finely grate the garlic cloves into the bowl.

4. Mash together laughing cow cheese, garlic and mayo, just until smooth.

5.  Spread desired amount on each baguette slice.

6. Finely grate egg over each baguette slice and sprinkle with fresh chives (or freshly chopped parsley) for garnish.

    One thing that we add to these is pomegranate on top with the chives. Sounds weird but it is super good. 🙂 Reply

    Instead of the laughing cow cheese, can you use regular cream cheese? Reply

      Yes but it won’t have the same flavor. And the laughing cow cheese is easier to blend with the mayo. Reply

        Hi Jul! You can make the mixture the day before but I would recommend topping the bread the day of to keep the bread from getting soggy Reply

    These look so yummy, nice to have variety from usual meat sandwiches. I’m always using mayo and the cheese would be even better for spread. Thanks for great idea! Reply
