Roast Beef Appetisers

A lovely beef canape that will certainly impress family and friends .  A great leftover recipe that uses thinly sliced cooked roast beef and shop-bought crumpets cut into canape size portions.  The canapes are topped with a dollop of prepared houmous or aubergine dip, some beef, then finished with a delicate sprig of fresh dill leaves.  Truly scrumptious!

8 people


  • 100g cooked roast beef, cut into thin slices
  • 8 crumpets
  • 2 tablespoons prepared houmous or aubergine dip
  • Fresh dill leaves, to garnish


  1. Stack the crumpets in groups of two and using a small 3.5cm plain round cutter cut three circles out from each crumpet.
  2. Transfer to a preheated, moderate grill and lightly toast on each side. Arrange on a large serving platter.
  3. Spread each mini crumpet with a portion of the dip, then the beef slices.
  4. Garnish with fresh dill leaves or the pomegranate relish.


Replace the crumpets with mini/party size bruschettas or cheese biscuits instead.
