Servings: 40 canapes

Ingredients

  • 1 long baguette cut on the diagonal into 1/3" slices
  • 2 Tsp melted butter for toasting the bread

For the Spread:

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 2 green onion stalks (3-4 Tbsp) finely chopped, plus more for garnish
  • 1/4 cup chopped dill finely chopped plus more for garnish
  • 1 large garlic clove pressed
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Toppings:

  • 1/2 lb kielbasa you can also use prosciutto, or even a good quality salami
  • 1/2 English cucumber
  • Caviar for garnish optional (my sister-in-law used caviar on top of canapes at our Christmas party and it made them extra fancy)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Use a pastry brush to lightly butter both sides. Bake for 5 minutes then remove from the oven. You just want to toast them slightly, not turn them into croutons. ;)
  2. In a small bowl, combine 8 oz cream cheese, chopped green onion, chopped dill, 1 pressed clove of garlic and 1/8 tsp pepper. Use a fork to mash the herbs into the cream cheese. Spread a generous amount onto each crostini. It's ok to spread while the bread is still warm.
  3. Top with thinly sliced kielbasa and cucumber and add a few sprigs of dill and sliced onion for garnish.
