Buffets and carpet picnics ROCK in this house and these mini baguette feasts are favourites with my husband and I and our kids too.
Perfect for parties too, these bites are easy to make and utterly delicious. So simple to rustle up they are simply crispy French stick slices topped with garlic fried mushrooms or squeaky Cypriot Cheese, hallumi, sliced radishes, balsamic glaze and coriander.
I have to share my Dad joke with you now:
What did the hallumi say to itself in the mirror? ‘Hallu-mi’. Haha!
Anyway, onwards! Quick to prepare and super-tasty morsels, I know you guys will simply love gobbling these beauties up!
Mushrooms on toast-
- 1 French Baguettes/any bread of your choice
- 2 tbsp mild olive oil
- 350g closed cup mushrooms, sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, finely sliced
- knob of salted butter
- freshly ground pepper and sea salt.
Slice the baguette and brush with olive oil. Set aside.
In a large frying pan, drizzle with olive oil and fry the garlic until golden then remove. Add the mushrooms and fry until golden and crispy.
Meanwhile, place the baguette into the oven and grill for 15 minutes by which time your mushrooms will be perfectly crisp.
Add a knob of butter to the mushrooms, place onto the toast, season with salt and pepper and enjoy.
Hallumi, radish and coriander treats-
- 1 baguette
- 1 block of hallumi, sliced
- 1 tbsp mild olive oil

Scrumptious savoury treats.
