Hot Canapés

I have been posting a lot of sweet dishes lately, primarily because I love desserts, especially if it involves chocolate. The only problem is you cannot have dessert all the time. Hence to change the taste, here is the recipe of savoury hot canapes that I made this weekend (on Friday night actually).

These canapes are really easy to make and requires very few ingredients. The important thing is that you can prepare and serve them under 15 minutes. Something that is quick and easy to make is very handy when you are hungry and tired, or if you are lazy like me and have an attitude of "will do it later" for any work in hand. This is an ideal nosh to make you feel good and it will be an absolute delight to your tastebuds.


1 Baguette 
Some red pesto
1 block of fresh Mozzarella cheese
Few slices of salami 


Heat a non-stick pan. Slice the baguette in to half inch thick pieces and place them on the pan for 1 minute on each side. Turn on the oven on grill mode and adjust the temperature to 100 degree Celsius. Spread the red pesto on one side of the bread slices. Place couple of salami slices on top of it. Now place one slice of fresh mozzarella. Place the bread slices on a baking tray wrapped in kitchen foil and bake it in the oven for 7-9 minutes or until the cheese on top is bubbling. Let them rest for a minute and then serve hot. Enjoy.
