This recipe is golden for parties where you don't have much time but still want to impress your crew. You don't even have to toast the bread. I do love gouda. It's a lovely smoky cheese that is nutty and sweet. Mmmm.

Servings: 25 -30 canapes


  • 1 long slim and fresh French bread baguette
  • 6-8 oz smoked gouda
  • 3/4 cup mayo
  • 1 large or 2 medium cloves garlic
  • A few small sprigs of dill for garnish optional


  1. Cut baguette into 1/2" thick slices. Finely grate cheese.
  2. Peel and grate garlic cloves into 3/4 cup mayo then stir to combine. Grating is better than pressing for these since you don't run the risk of getting bigger strips of garlic in a bite. It also lets out more flavor to grate them in.
  3. Spread a thin-ish layer (not too gimpy now) of mayo over each bread slice. Finely grate gouda cheese on the smaller holes of the grater. Add a generous pinch of cheese over each canapé and garnish with dill if desired. The dill makes them look fancy and adds nice flavor at the same time.
