Dutch Rusk Canapes

Crispy and delicious loaded with vegetables, cheese, and yogurt dip, these Dutch Rusk Canapes would make a wonderful party or evening tea time snack.

Sometimes recipes in the drafts are a total lifesaver, right?? How would you feel when the magic draft folder has recipes that suit your theme or course you want to post on the blog. That’s what happened with me, this third week all the recipes I am posting are suitable for snacks and I was worried that I do not have snacks for last two days. But to my surprise, I did find two recipes that would fit the theme.

I know I could have cooked a new recipe and post on the blog, but this whole week I was and still am super busy. Lo is going to start school from Monday and before that, it’s her birthday on Sunday. I have to bake rainbow ombre cake from Gayatri’s space and cook for a small party too. That’s why I could not cook anything new, not right now.

Anyways I made these Dutch rusk canapes a few months back when I had a pack of Dutch Rusk needs to be used. On that day I didn’t have anything on hand for an evening snack and the family was super hungry practically crying for some snack. So I used all the veggies I had and wrapped these canapes as soon as I could. Everyone loved these light and delicious yet super inviting canapes and hence I saved the day.
