Yummy. I scaled this recipe down to 12 canapes to nibble on with DH over a glass of wine. Because I had it on hand, I used Roquefort instead of gorgonzola and walnuts instead of pecans. Also, just a whole-grain seeded bread as rye is next to impossible to find in Greece, but I was true to the essence of the recipe and it was delicious.
