These melts were good. It's just a thick bechamel (white sauce) with chopped deli smoked turkey and shredded Gruyere folded in, spread on sliced baguette and broiled. A tiny dollop of cranberry sauce on top brightens the flavor and appearance.
Cocktail rye's with chive cream cheese, cuke slices, radish slices, yellow grape tomato slivers and fresh parsley.
I had the shrimp in my freezer, so the rest was just a matter of cutting and plating. Easy and quick, but it felt special to graze on all those miniatures! Sadly, the cakes were not that delicious- from a mix- even the little girls are getting too spoiled for boxed mixes! I remember as a kid I hated boxed or bakery cakes with their grainy crisco frosting. Only my grandma's cakes with real butter frosting would do!
