Make this pub treat at home for the whole family to enjoy. Use spicy sausage, if you prefer. If you don’t have a large pie plate, you can stack everything on a rimmed baking sheet.
Mile High Pie Dough
This easy food processor pie dough was developed for our Mile High Spinach Pie recipe, but you can use it with any savoury pie. The finished dough is very easy to work with, so perfect for pie making novices. If using for a sweet pie, add 1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar when you add the salt.
Goat Brie Pastry Bites
Our ham is delicately flavoured with rosemary and pairs beautifully with Brie and apple. You could use pear, if you prefer.
Potato Apple Latkes
We gave this traditional Jewish dish a sweet twist by adding apple to the usual potato-onion mixture, instead of serving with applesauce later. Yogurt makes a healthier choice than sour cream for dolloping on. We made ours sit-down appetizer size; for passed hors d’oeuvre-size portions, form mixture into thirty-two 1 1/4-inch diameter patties and fry for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until browned and cooked through.
Blue Cheese Canapés with Walnuts
A great, year-round, one-bite canapé. If blue cheese is not your favourite, a nice aged Cheddar would work just was well with these flavours.
Puff Pastry Cheese Twists
A delicious snack to serve with cocktails. Don’t worry if some of the toppings fall off while you twist the pastry strips; work over the baking sheet and some will bake back onto the bottoms of the twists.
Tuscan Goat Cheese Bites
This really easy appetizer makes a lovely presentation. It goes great with a glass of red wine!
Tomato & Goat Cheese Pizzettes
Top little pizzas with pesto, goat cheese and tomato for a yummy little two-bite hors d’oeuvre everyone will love. Substitute basil pesto, if you prefer.
Roasted Fingerling Potatoes with Goat Cheese Dip
Think of this as upscale potato skins! Great at a cocktail party with drinks or at a casual get-together while watching the game.
Red Pepper Goat Cheese Tart
Crisp, flaky pastry is topped with a savoury vegetable mixture and tangy goat’s cheese. Pre-rolled PC Puff Pastry makes this fabulous appetizer a cinch.
