Parmesan Onion Canapés


Sometimes even the oldest recipes can make a comeback and be a crowd pleaser.  For some reason I got to thinking about these canapés.  I haven’t had them in years, but my  grandmother used to make them when I was a child and I remember them being so good.  After searching Pinterest for a bit, I found a few recipes that resembled this one.  Thanks to my mom and aunt, they were able to break the recipe out of their files and I was more than pleased with the result.  Side note – my aunt and cousin made them over the holidays and their guests loved them, and I made them for the Eagles game this past  Sunday and they got two thumbs up from our friends.


The mixture is so easy to prepare and can be done in advance.  Since spreading it on the bread and broiling in the oven takes very little time, you can have a tasty appetizer to serve your guests in about ten minutes tops.  I hope you enjoy these canapés as much as I do!

Parmesan Onion Canapés

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1 T. milk

1 loaf of cocktail sized rye bread

Mix all above ingredients together and spread on bread.  Broil about 4 inches from source of heat until golden and bubbly.  Since each oven is different, check after one minute and closely watch them until done.  Total broiling time is anywhere from 1-2 minutes.  Serve warm.

Makes approximately 30 canapés.


With only five ingredients, these tasty canapés could be the shining star at your next party.  Give them a try!
