~bread cases~

These easy little bread cases are perfect for nibbles and canapés. They can then be filled with pretty much anything you like!

They make a nice change and are very easy to prepare!

Ingredients:

Bread slices! brown, white – whatever you prefer, as many as you like – I find one slice gives me 4 cases

melted butter flavoured with garlic, salt and pepper

How to: Cut the crusts off the bread slices, I often use a ready sliced loaf and then can prepare several slices of bread at one time. Flatten each slice using a rolling-pin then take a small cookie cutter (mine is 48mm dia) and cut circles out of the flattened bread. I usually get 4 circles from one slice. Next brush one side of each circle with the butter, press into a “petit four” or mini muffin tin butter side down, and brush the upper side with butter. When the tin is full bake at 180°C for 10 mins until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool before storing or filling!

Here I filled mine with a prawn cocktail mixture…

…and egg mayonnaise

Other filling ideas are cream cheese and cucumber, avocado and red pepper or simply a spoonful of red pepper humus.

They can be made a few days in advance and stored, unfilled, in an air tight tin until needed.

To prevent them going soggy, the filling should only be added about an hour before serving.

  1. Yummy and easy! These are so cute! I make bread pieces just cut in half toasted and topped with black beans, sweet potatoes, avocado and curry and it is sooo good! I agree that easy is sometimes best. Happy new year 🙂
