We are serving canapes with the welcome drinks to the guests as they arrive at the reception venue. i was wondering if anyone has any ideas what we could serve? our venue is very flexable and will cater for anything we suggest… so far here is what weve come up with..
Canapés served with welcome drinks
Mini cheeseburger in a mini bun served with tomato relish
Mini fish and chips with tartar sauce in mini newspaper cone
Caramelised red onion and cheese tart garnished with basil
Smoked salmon and cream cheese on a belini garnished with chopped chives
Mini tomato and shallot bruschetta with fresh basil
Ritz biscuit, brie, red onion chutney or chilli jam
Quails egg scotch egg (cut in half to serve)
Any other ideas greatly recieved!! Many thanks 🙂
PS this is a selection that we will narrow down to 3 choices, i wish we could have them all tho!

I’m drooling over the onion & cheese tart, salmon & cream cheese blini, and quail scotch egg. The others sound good too, but those 3 are my favs. The mini burgers & mini fish & chips sound good, but more for a late night snack in my opinion, although I’m sure you’ll get lots of votes for those as your welcome nibbles too.

I’m serving a more Latino theme menu for the appetizers, such as:
- Papa rellenos (mash potato & meat shaped into a ball and then breaded and deep fried)
- Fresh steamed shrimp station with all kinds of sauces that folks could help themselves with (very popular with the Latino culture)
- Chicken quesadillas
- Mini skewers with spicy pork (pernil guisado)
- Vegetable Tempura
I’m with Daisy Mae – Salmon & Cream cheese blini and the fish & chips. The quail may be a bit exotic for some folks, and you could never go wrong with mini burgers. As a rule, I woud suggest one fish, one meat and one chicken appetizer so that everyone will get what they like. I like the idea of something more light like the bruchetta.

Mmm, I love reading about food. I would be so into the mini cheeseburgers and mini fish n’ chips. Those seem like no-fail crowd-pleasers to me. And would look so cute!
