Holiday Appetizers 101: Mini Rye Breads.
Update your google readers! http://feeds.feedburner.com/howsweeteats/smSp
We have another super easy and quick appetizer here! :)
Have you ever seen these mini rye breads? They are near the deli counter and gourmet cheese in my grocery store.
My mom started making this appetizer last year. It is so simple and fast, but tastes delicious and unique.
You can use any spread. We like this gorgonzola spread. I think spinach and artichoke would be incredible. Flavored hummus would probably also be great.
You could also top these with a bit of cheese or preseves. Or a chunk of brie!!
Make a slice of rye with gourmet brie on top. Then go out and buy some bigger clothes.
If you’re anything like me, you’ll want to eat it all. And you will.
All you have to do is layer some spread on the rye breads, and pop them into the oven for about 10-15 minutes.
Talk about the perfect last minute appetizer. And as long as your pay attention, you could use the broiler – it would probably take 5 minutes or less.
Even better – you can just throw them all onto a plate when they are done.
Nothin’ fancy, because they are just going to be gobbled up anyway.
This cheese gets all bubbly and browned. It’s my most favorite way to eat cheese.
I always eat the entire top of my Lobster Mac myself. I hoard it before anyone can have it.
Have you tried that yet? It makes an excellent holiday dish.
Mini Rye Breads
- 1 package mini rye breads
- 1 container cheese-flavored spread, I used gorgonzola
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Lay mini rye breads on a baking dish and layer a tablespoon of spread on them. Bake at 300 for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is golden brown and bubbly.

Ohhh, this sounds delicious! I’m actually going to a holiday party this weekend and have been stressing about what to make because I was instructed to bring a savory dish. (Sweets are my specialty). I just might try this!
if i ever entertain- i will def use these :)
Yum, nice switch from sweet to savory! I’m not a big fan of rye, but with that delicious cheese spread on top I couldn’t resist!
I really need to start jumping into your fitness section more often because every time I come to your blog I think “How the heck can she make all this stuff so frequently and look that great?!”
I used to make my mom buy me those rye breads because they were cute and mini- not much has changed in my food preferences!
This looks like an amazing recipe. Thank YOU for posting. I obviously love your blog.
Anything with gorgonzola…yummmm!
Those mini ryes look bangin’! I am a sucker for gorgonzola – on pasta, flatbread, salad, polenta….love it! Thanks for the recipe and really dig your site!!!!!
These are yummy and easy to make. I always have the small bread and a cheese spread on hand. This way if someone comes over I can pop these in the oven and impress them :)
We also put a meat and cheese mixture on the bread during the holidays.
