As part of our Christmas taste tests, one of the areas we wanted to explore were all those ready-made canapés you see in the supermarkets every year during the festive period. So we called them in and set about trying each one to find the best of the lot. Unfortunately, not one of them was up to scratch – they were either far too finicky to put together, massively lacking in the flavour department or looked far too unappetising to be served at any sort of party.
Not only did they have a pretty poor flavour, they were also no quicker to put together than many of the Christmas canapé recipes on our website. So rather than recommending some sub-standard party food, we’ve rounded up our five easiest, tastiest festive canapés to make at home. Each one takes less than an hour to put together and will knock anything you can buy in the supermarket out of the water.
