I forgot to remember

When I plopped these snacks down in front of Thatboy he took a bite and told me he wasn't a fan. Not a big deal, because we had other food on the way. But then he ate another one. And another one. Pretty soon he had eaten almost the entire plate. He said they grew on him. I guess so! Although, cream cheese is always a popular appetizer ingredient, so I shouldn't be too surprised. And doesn't everyone like things they can eat with their hands?

Hot Cream Cheese Canapes (From The Fannie Farmer Cookbook)
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 onion, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 30 small bread squares, toasted (I used baguette slices, untoasted)
  1. Preheat the broiler. Mix the cream cheese, egg, onion, salt, and pepper.
  2. Spread on toasted bread and place under broiler until puffed and lightly browned.


  1. They sound like a great simple appetizer.

  2. Me wants. This Fannie character kinda rocks.

  3. I think cream cheese is the greatest invention for some good quick food. It can do so much. I think I would have eaten the entire tray of these!
