Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • 3 -5 tablespoons milk
  • 2 loaves bread, of your choice (see below)


  1. Mix the cheese with the chives and 3 tablespoons of milk until smooth. If this is too thick add more of the milk.
  2. Using a serrated knife, trim your bread. You can use a baguette and slice thinly, leaving the crust. Or use a hearty wheat, honey wheat or even oatmeal bread and remove the crust then cut into small squares.
  3. Spread the cream cheese over your bread piece, not quite to the edges. At this point you can place on baking sheets and chill for up to 6 hours, or use immediately.
  4. Pick your nasturtium blooms and gently rinse. Place one bloom on each piece of bread, or careful separate the petals and arrange in a design on top of the cream cheese.
  5. You can also add small herb leaves, such as thyme, oregano or chive stems to decorate.
  6. Serve your canapés on a pretty plate or platter lined with a paper doily. These are great for summer tea parties!
