Melty Cheddar Olive Canapés are one of my all-time favorite hors d’oeuvres. My mom, a fabulous cook and the hostess with the mostest, taught me how to make these canapés. They’ve been a family favorite since I was a little girl. We’ve made these appetizers for company and to bring to parties. They’ve always been a hit!

If you’re looking for hors d’oeuvres ideas or just want to try a delicious snack, these melty cheesy bites are the perfect choice! They’re ideal for dinner parties, movie nights, holiday gatherings, Super Bowl parties, or anytime you get together with family or friends.

These canapés contain cheddar cheese, scallions, black olives, mayonnaise, and curry melted on a melba round. I highly recommend that you double or triple the recipe because most people can’t stop at one (or five)!
