Various Flavored Canapés
A canapé is an appetizer consisting of a small piece of bread or pastry topped with something savory. One of our favorite canapés is cucumber on top of rye bread with herb cream cheese. The combinations with this finger food are endless—don’t be afraid to serve multiple savory flavors to please every guest’s palate.
Baked Brie With Toasted Baguette Slices
Brie cheese has a soft, creamy interior that is perfect for dipping slices of baguette. Add in other flavors like fig, orange, and apricot to elevate the taste of this cheese. This appetizer is great for formal holiday events because it pairs well with other traditional holiday foods.

Shrimp makes for an excellent hors d’oeuvre because you can easily pick it up with your fingers. Pairing it with the crispy crunch of wontons will create texture in this delicious appetizer. Add another element to this dish, such as guacamole, to bring more flavor. Place these cups on disposable catering serving trays and allow guests to help themselves!
