Easy peasy biscuit canape

Grab one soon before it gets over...

Canape - an appetizer consisting of a thin slice or piece of bread toasted or fried in butter or oil, on which anchovies, mushrooms, caviar, cheese, or other savory foods, are served (Source:

How happy it will be when our kutti kutti childhood desire comes true after many years? I felt the same today after clicking these colorful cool canapes.

Long long ago, me and my sister saw a biscuit advertisement in a magazine in which the biscuits were topped with many layers and served colorfully. That time we did not know much about the cheese and toppings, so we simply used a Maggie tomato ketchup.

After many years, the time I started to know much about cooking and special ingredients used to give catchy look to the dish, I realized how simple it is to do topping over a biscuit. When I tried this biscuit canape today, the 12 year in me took over and I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of preparing and serving this dish.

Ingredients :

Salt biscuit for base.
Cheese slice of any kind.
Thinly sliced mixed vegetables
   -- Carrot,
   -- Cucumber,
   -- Onion,
   -- Cilantro,
   -- Tomato.
Grated cheese and crunchy savory mixture.
**Note : There is no specific measure for the ingredients, prepare as much as you like. I am not going to restrict by giving the measurements.

Method :
--- This easy peasy biscuit canape is very simple, its only layering of all the ingredients.
--- Arrange the biscuit over the serving plate. Choose the plate according to your theme, because once we start layering it will be difficult to change the plates.
--- Take the cheese slice and cut into small squares or triangles according to the size of the biscuit.
--- Place the cheese slice over the biscuit as a second layer.
--- Take a spoonful of mixed vegetable and put it on the top of the cheese. This forms the third layer.
--- To make it little more crunchy, top the vegetables with little savory mixture.
--- Drizzle some finely grated cheese as a last layer.
--- The easy peasy biscuit canape is ready to rock the party

Variations :
--- You can use vegetables like green, red or yellow bell peppers, will give nice color to the plate.
--- Also to make it little spicy, you can use any ketchup in the bottom layer.

These canapes will be a best for any parties or quick snacks. Easy to make and so colorful to look.
