Horseradish Canapés

Makes 30 canapés 12 servings

 

In Verona, Italy, some cooks liked to use horseradish instead of pepper and one finds horseradish in the cooking of Friuli-Venezia Giulia as well. These very simple canapés are slightly spicy from the horseradish, but not overly so. Decorate the top with a small leaf of watercress if you like.

3 ounces whipped cream cheese
1/4 cup peeled and grated fresh horseradish
3 tablespoons sour cream
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh watercress
Thirty 1/4-inch-thick slices French baguette

In a medium-size bowl, mix the cream cheese, horseradish, sour cream, and watercress until well blended, keeping to the side some watercress leaves for garnishing the tops, if desired. Spread about 1 teaspoon of the mixture on each slice of bread and serve.
