Mini-Toasts with Roast Beef, Brie and Onion Jam. For my first posting of 2016, I’d like to offer a celebratory party “nibble” recipe to welcome the new year! My mini-toasts with roast beef, brie, and onion jam are simple to make. This recipe is a variation of my Mini-Toasts with Roast Beef, Horseradish Sauce, Grape Tomato Slices and Chopped Chives. Serve either or both!
Easy to assemble, just put a dab of mayo on a mini-toast, roll some sliced roast beef around a chunk of brie, top with some onion jam, garnish with a bit of tomato and some minced chives. Serve these bite-sized mini-toasts as a passed appetizer or set them out as part of a buffet. Festive and tasty!
You can use any brand of brie cheese for this appetizer. I like the Alouette brand.
My favorite onion jam is by Robert Rothschild Farm. Their Caramelized Onion Balsamic Spread has a nice spicy kick to it.
Enjoy! Wishing everyone a safe and healthy 2016!!!
