Here's quick and tasty Christmas Canape's with three different filling options all in one recipe!


  • 200g packet ready rolled filo pastry
  • 50g (2oz) butter, melted
  • Fresh chives
  • Red pepper
Avocado, prawn and lemon:

  • 25g (1oz) butter
  • 1/2 lemon, grated rind and juice
  • 1 spring onion, finely sliced
  • 50g (2oz) fresh peeled prawns
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, peeled, stone removed and diced
Feta and lime:

  • 25g (1oz) butter
  • 1/2 lime, grated rind and juice
  • 50g (2oz) feta cheese, crumbled
  • 15ml (1tbsp) fresh coriander, chopped
Sausage and cranberry:

  • 4 chunky sausages, skins removed
  • 15ml (1tbsp) cranberry sauce
  • 25g (1oz) bean sprouts
  • 1/4 green pepper, deseeded and finely sliced


  1. Make each of the fillings separately by mixing together all ingredients listed for each.
  2. Take the sheets of filo and cut into 4 (this should give you rectangles about 15x20cm)
  3. Place one sheet on a board and brush with melted butter, place a further sheet on top and brush again with butter.
  4. Place a spoonful of the mixture at the edge in the centre and roll up - pinch the edges to make a cracker shape - continue until you have sufficient crackers for the festive occasion!
  5. Place on a baking sheet and brush with a little more melted butter - this will make them crisp and golden
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 190°C/375°F/gas 5 for about 15 mins until pastry is golden and crisp
  7. Finish off with fresh chives and very thin strips of red pepper for 'bows'

Unfortunately, despite only putting a minimal amount of filling in each, the feta ones burst open while cooking and the filling seeped out which meant by the time theythey were empty shells with no filling.
