The spread for these canapes is the best I've tried. It's so flavorful and there is NO butter! These canapes are wildly delicious and super easy.

Servings: 20 -30 canapes


  • 6 oz package "The Laughing Cow" Original Creamy Swiss flavor cheeses 8 wedges in a package
  • 2 to 4 garlic cloves add more or less depending on preference
  • 1 Tbsp real mayo
  • 1 long baguette sliced about 1/4" to 1/3" thick
  • 2 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1 english cucumber sliced (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp parsley chopped (optional - for garnish)


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  1. Lightly brush both sides of the sliced baguette with melted butter. Place them on a baking sheet and put them in the oven about 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.
  2. Peel and press the garlic cloves.
  3. Mash together 6 oz of laughing cow cheese, 2 garlic cloves and 1 Tbsp of mayo.
  4. Spread desired amount on each baguette slice and top with a sliced cucumber.

Recipe Notes

I used an artesian flat bread for the picture since I served these with dinner. Yeah- I can't imagine eating those in one bite!!! These are great as-is, but I like cucumber because it adds an element of freshness.
