8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 ½ teaspoons grated onion
2 ½ tablespoons chopped green onions
½ cup (2 ounces) freshly grated Parmesan cheese
½ cup mayonnaise
Tabasco sauce to taste (optional)
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 loaf thinly sliced white bread
Combine the cream cheese, grated onion, green onions, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese, Tabasco sauce and cayenne pepper in a bowl and mix well. Chill for 30 minutes.
Cut the bread into rounds with a 1 ½ - inch cutter. Mound the cream cheese mixture onto the triangles and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Freeze until firm. Bake the frozen rounds in a preheated 350-degree oven for 15 minutes or until the topping is puffed and the bottoms are slightly crisp.
Tip: For quicker preparation, you can cut the bread crusts off and cut each slice into 4 pieces cross wise. This recipe can be prepared ahead and frozen for a quick appetizer any time!
