Almond Cheddar Appetizers

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.


about 4 dozen

I always try to have a supply of these appetizers on hand in the freezer. If guests drop in, I just pull some out and reheat to serve. They work great as a snack, for brunch or along with a lighter lunch. —Linda Thompson, Southampton, Ontario

    I made these appetizers for Christmas and my guests loved them! They were easy to make and very tasty. The one small change I made was I used white cheddar cheese because I am allergic to Annatto, the coloring used in yellow cheeses. This recipe is a definite keeper!

    Have made this recipe twice. The first exactly like written and the second with a minor change. Both were served to dinner guests and both were completely devoured. The change made was to use baguettes instead of French bread. Taste is the same, but the presentation is prettier. Will use this recipe again and again.

    These appetizers are always a huge hit! I make them up ahead and pop them in the freezer (before baking) then you can just heat them up when unexpected company arrives.
