Easy Savoury Christmas Canapés by Trish Deseine

Pidy canapé cases are just the best thing to have in your cupboards in the Christmas run-up. They come in all shapes and forms, are a perfect one or two bite size, do not go soggy and taste good enough without being cardboard-ish underneath all sorts of delectable Christmas nibbles. You can mix and match to your heart’s content. The best quality luxury festive ingredients can go a long way with a little inventiveness!

Serves 8-10 | 25 mins prep 


  • Stewed Apples
  • Buttery Mashed Potato
  • Skeaghmore Smoked Duck
  • Raspberries
  • Beetroot Hummus
  • Ciara’s Pantry Port Jelly
  • Almonds


Apple and Horseradish Mash with Skeaghmore smoked duck and raspberries

Mix lightly stewed apples through buttery potato mash. Season with salt and pepper, add some xxx horseradish to taste and let cool slightly. (Do not serve completely cold or the butter will harden and make the mash taste unpleasant.) 

Fill the pastry spoons or cases. Tear or cut slivers of Skeaghmore smoked duck, set onto the mash, garnish with raspberries or cranberries and serve. 

Beetroot hummus with Ciara’s Pantry Cranberry & Port jelly and almond slivers

Fill the pastry cases with the hummus, add a little dollop of port jelly and garnish with almond slivers.

De la Mer Crab mayo with preserved lemons and Goatsbridge trout caviar

Mix De la Mer crab with a touch of Hellmans mayonnaise. Add a little grated lemon or lime zest and a good twist of fresh pepper. Fill the puff pastry shells and top with Goatsbridge trout caviar.
