Recipe for warm canapes with lunch meat, tomatoes, avocado and cheese, toasted.

As a stay at home mom, some days I am not in the mood to go all out for breakfast or lunchtime just for myself and the little ones. Something quick works just fine. That’s why I just love these warm/hot canapes or any other canape recipe, we have so many other canapes posted on our blog (WE LOVE CANAPES, OPEN-FACED SANDWICHES). My kiddos don’t like the tomatoes or avocados on the open-faced sandwiches. So what I do it mix everything before adding the tomatoes and avocado, I then set aside their meat and add the remaining ingredients to mine. If you like a bit of spice to your food, I really like adding chopped jalapenos (fresh or jarred). Gives the canapes a little kick.

Most days my husband is up early and I love sending him off to work fed and satisfied. I prepare everything the night before, then, once I’m up I just mix everything and toast them. By the time he is dressed and we have prayed, breakfast is served. So quick and easy. Just keep mixture covered in the fridge and it will stay fresh for days:).


  • Favorite lunch meat (I use 1/3 lb of salami, 1/3 turkey and 1/3 ham, combination of any lunch meat may be used.)
  • Small green onions, sliced, optional 
  • Shredded cheese, freshly grated is best
  • Mayo
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Avocado
  • French bread, or any other bread you may have
  • Garlic

Makes 18-22

(NOTE: This is a really old recipe, I’m bumping it to the top since I made a video for it! :)..)

Make these canapes for your next party. They will be such a hit! I especially love to make this for parties because I can prepare everything in advance and even slice the bread, then just put them together and bake the day of.
