Smoked Bacon & Cheddar Canapé Recipe
This delicious Smoked Bacon and Cheddar canapé recipe was passed on to us by one of our lovely customers Ally! It’s a real crowd pleaser and perfect as a hot nibble if you’re entertaining or just as a naughty afternoon snack!
For the cheese sauce:
2 tbsp plain flour
25g Calon Wen Organic Salted Butter
75g BMS Smoked Cheddar with Paprika – crumbled
4 rashers of Smoked Bacon – cooked and diced
Chives – roughly chopped
Edible flowers – if in season
Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
Melt the Butter in a large saucepan on a medium heat. Add the flour and milk and start to whisk. Bring the mixture to a boil and keep whisking until the sauce begins to thicken, turn heat down.
Whilst the sauce is thickening, fry the rashers of Smoked Bacon, pat off any excess oil and dice.
Add the Bacon and the Smoked Cheddar to the sauce and give it a good stir.
Lay the canapé shells onto baking tray and pour in the cheese sauce. Pop in the oven for 5 -10 mins.
Take out and leave to cool for a minute or two – they will be piping hot!
Sprinkle over the chives and wild garlic flowers and allow your guests to dig in!
