Mushroom Bell Pepper Canapes  Recipe

Canapes make a great dinner snack, especially when you're hosting a party. They are hard to stop at the first or the second one, but the the same time they are pretty much guilt free. We had a tray of them sitting in out fridge for snacking, and by the end of the day they were all gone.

A thinly sliced bread, topped with some garlicky cream cheese and loaded with veggies, makes a very good combination of flavors. You can double up on the recipe, and keep it refrigerated until you start craving again.
