New Year's Eve Delights

It’s New Year’s Eve and when you invited the neighbours round for a tipple last week, you didn’t realise it would snowball quite this much. Now you have half the village coming and you have to magic a feast out of nowhere right? Wrong. Your fridge probably holds the starting point for a number of delicious canapés. Here’s what we’re whipping up to welcome in 2015, Godminster style.

It wouldn’t be right if we didn’t start with a little something cheesy. These crispy brie and cranberry filo canapés by Ocean Spray are so moreish and look really impressive but are honestly a bit of a cheat dish. Just press the filo pastry into muffin tins and bake to get the shape before filling with creamy brie, baking until golden and bubbling then adding a spoonful of leftover cranberry sauce.

Our friends at Love Beetroot have a way of making something out of just a few simple ingredients and here is their take on a trio of simple but delicious bite sized morsels.

You know all those shallots you bought for your Christmas Day gravy and didn’t use all of? Well we’ve got an idea for those! Not so much a canapé as a hearty chip and dip combination these spiced wedges with shallot relish will be a bit more substantial once the bubbles start flowing!
