No hard feelings, guys. Thanks for coming to the party.
You were infinitely helpful in soaking up the cocktails my husband poured down our throats all night. And, you can bet, that someday in the future when an unexpected guest arrives, all I'll have on hand will be cocktail olives, a few heels of bread, a wedge of cheese and some cream cheese quietly meditating in the back of the fridge. When that day comes, Olive and Cheese Canapes I, it will be your time to shine.
Cheese and Olive Canapes I (Hot)
Prepare finger-shaped pieces of dark bread and toast them. Spread each one with cream cheese and sprinkle with chopped olives and very coarsely grated yellow cheese, preferably Edam, although Young America* may be used. Place on a baking sheet and set in the oven until the cheese melts and all is well-heated.
* I used a young Gouda. Also, what the eff is Young America cheese?
