History repeating

With the party season well and truly upon us, I remember the party food of my childhood. Not kids food but the food the adults would have, smoked oysters, cheese and cabanossi, and vol au vents
Bacon Canapes (pronounced KaNaps not Canopay) are pretty lame but I remember them so fondly, mainly for making an appearance at every function. They were also something that as a kid I could make.
I have upgraded the ingredients from the orginal, maybe just a sign of the times, free range bacon, colby instead of plastic cheese, butter instead of margarine.

Bacon KaNaps
  • 1 bagette
  • 2 rashers of bacon, sliced in 2cm pieces
  • 6 sliced of colby cheese quatered
  • butter
  • Slice the bagette into 1 cm pieces
  • Spread with a little butter and place on a baking tray
  • Place a piece of cheese on each round
  • Top with a piece of bacon
  • Bake at 180 degrees for 25-30 minutes until golden.
