Every once in a while, hubby has friends over. When he does, I take the opportunity to experiment with "finger" foods. This time, the idea came from a book on canapes.
Although, I wonder how much change can be made to a recipe and still be considered authentic.
what I did was more of a bastardization... but in my defense, I wanted
to use items that were already in the kitchen and pantry considering
that I did not have time to go out and buy ingredients....
or traditional eggs benedict are made of poached eggs and Canadian
bacon on English muffins, topped with hollandaise sauce. Mine were
cheese, salami and fried quail egg on toast, topped with faux Ceasar
In short, my version is faux... or better known as... fake!
But it was fun to make and quite easy too!
using a round cookie cutter, cut one or two circles of toast. Place a
slice of cheese on the toast, then a piece of folded salami. Top with a
piece of fried quail egg. Drizzle with faux Ceasar dressing (or use a bottled one).
sit back as the praises fly (hubby's friends were impressed! even the
one who was on a strict diet could not resist! ☺☺☺☺)
