Recipe: Easy peasy canape

Sliced roast beef on those nice crispbread wafers you usually have with good cheese, with a horseradish cream and chives.

Like little soldiers lined up on a plate

I once spent a lot of time to make something very similar involving beef fillet and crusty bread. I cooked the beef fillet myself and the crusty bread needed to be warmed, have garlic rubbed onto it and then assembled. It was very very very nice, but it was alot of effort.

This is great too, for alot less time, trouble, effort and dirty dishes. It’s more assembling than cooking too.


  • Pack of gourmet crisp bread wafers
  • 2/3 slices of roast beef from the deli section of a good supermarket or continental delicatessen
  • Horseradish creme (pure horseradish)
  • Thick cream
  • Fresh chives (from my garden ;)) finely sliced

Mix about 2-3 tbsp of the thick cream with 1-2 tsp of the horseradish creme. Stir well, season with salt and pepper and return to the fridge until needed.

Lay out your wafers on a platter and tear the roast beef into strips and lay a bit on each wafer. Dollop with the cream/horseradish mixture and sprinkle over the chives.

I finish with some freshly ground pepper and salt, so I looks like I went to alot of effort…except I didn’t.
