KETO TRUFFLE "CAVIAR" CANAPE
To me, an appetizer sets the tone for the entire meal. My Keto Truffle Caviar Canapes will let your guests know that they are in a for a special treat.
Truffle “Caviar” Canape
Some people think the best part of a meal is dessert. I know better. Appetizers whet the appetite and set the tone. If you love beginnings as much as I do, you also know that the first bite is the most important. Over the years, I’ve spent countless hours researching and experimenting the best types of appetizers. Through this, I’ve determined that a canape has the most impact. Who doesn’t love a perfect bite?
Usually, people think of canapes as bites on bread. Since I’ve started eating keto, my definition has expanded to include cucumbers and sausages as perfect bases. My Truffle “Caviar” Canape uses crisped sausage as the stage for cheese and truffle “caviar.” Deliciously gluten free, sugar free, and low carb, these appetizers don’t need bread.
To make the sopressata slices extra crispy and not greasy, Chef Alexa bakes the on paper towels that absorb the excess fats.
Having an appetizer makes any party extra special. Next time you host a soiree, set these out for the guests to enjoy before anything else. Truffle “Caviar” Canapes will impress and delight. No one will guess how easy they are to make. Don’t be surprised if people ask for more for dessert. These are that good.
