Nana Recipe Wednesday—Hot Onion Canape

by Sarah on December 28, 2011

Cocktails = Munchies

Am I right, or what?  Drinks always should equal little cocktail food, or you will end up with a bunch of hammered people and that is never a good situation.  Feed your cocktail guests.  You will be happier, as will they.  Nana has a multitude of cocktail recipes, and this is just one of the many.  According to my father, this one came from a guy she used to hire to help her cook for parties.  This man used to work for the railroad–maybe in a cooking profession, I’m not really sure–and when he retired, he did a bit of catering on the side.

Anyway, this is one of the simplest, yet most delicious, cocktail recipes ever created.

This recipe is so simple, there’s not even step-by-step instructions.  Just spread on the mayo, put on some onion and broil lightly.  It’s practically laughable.

Was that the easiest thing ever, or what?

Nana's Hot Onion Canapes


  • White bread
  • Best Foods mayonnaise
  • Sweet onion, thinly sliced


  • Cut white bread into rounds.
  • Spread Best Foods mayo onto the bread--a light layer.
  • Place some very thinly sliced onion (I used sweet Vidalia onion) onto the bread, cut to size.
  • Spread another thin layer of Best Foods on top.
  • Bake in a 425* oven for 10 or so minutes until they are browned lightly and ever-so-slightly puffed up.
  • Never substitute inferior mayonnaise for Best Foods.
  • Eat.
