Swiss cheese, yes!  Bacon, yes!  Those are two reasons why this recipe makes outstanding canapés.  And what makes them even better is the rye bread rounds they’re served on!  Another of Mom’s recipes...

Canapés are hors d’oeuvres which are ordinarily served on a round or triangle of bread and may be almost too stylish and “pretty” to eat.  You will impress your crowd when serving these as they make a great presentation and taste divine.  Another great easy hors d’oeuvres for your Super Bowl party!

Hot Swiss Canapés


3 egg whites
3 slices uncooked bacon, chopped
1½ cups Swiss cheese, shredded
½ chopped green bell pepper
¼ cup chopped green onions
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
24 slices party rye bread


Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until stiff peaks form; fold in chopped bacon, Swiss cheese, green pepper, onions, salt and pepper. 
Spread about 1 tablespoon mixture on each bread slice. 
Place on baking sheets and broil 4”-5” from heat about 5 minutes or until bacon is cooked.
Serve immediately.

Very tasty!  Delicious!!!


  1. I can't eat bacon but I think these would be good,even without it.

    I love your photograph. I don't think I could wear hats like that although I guess they were fun.

  2. Yes, I can't imagine wearing the hats either. Pretty whimsical and nothing like a feather in your hat!

"We plan, we toil, we suffer – in the hope of what? A camel-load of idol’s eyes? The title deeds of Radio City? The empire of Asia? A trip to the moon? No, no, no, no. Simply to wake just in time to smell coffee and bacon and eggs."
