Ingredients

How to make it

  • Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Cut 40 rounds from bread slices with cutter, then brush 1 side of each round with butter/olive oil and bake on a large baking sheet until pale golden, about 8 minutes. (Leave toasts on baking sheet.)
  • Preheat broiler.
  • Finely grate (I use a mircoplane) the Parmigiano-Reggiano (you will have about 1 cup).
  • Mash together cream cheese, olives, scallion, bell pepper, paprika, and Sherry until combined well, then top each toast with 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture and sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano.
  • Broil canapés about 4 inches from heat until Parmigiano-Reggiano begins to turn golden, about 1 minute.
  • ~~~~
  • ~ Toasts can be made 1 day ahead and cooled completely, then kept in an airtight container at room temperature.
  • ~ Cream cheese mixture can be made 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. Bring to room temperature before using.

    My mom told me never to play with my can-of-peas but it was more fun than eating them. This recipe sounds so good I may have to make an exception...;-)~~ I love the chile sub and sherry goes so well with cream cheese. I just may be trying these sooner than later. Hope I can get a few to my guests.. Thanks sweetie... Jim
