Home popped salted popcorn?

Olives done in lemon juice etc?

Those little spicy pepper thingies stuffed with cream cheese?

I can give you my spicy feta dip recipe if you want it.

Blinis topped with a dollop of cream cheese and a little bit of smoked salmon. Dead simple and they look pretty. Blinis are little Russian pancake thingys which you can get in the supermarket somewhere in the fridges.

Thank you both! It needs to be 'dry' things that are more store cupboard like than canape like to give as gifts in a hamper for someone who doesn't like sweet things. Sorry for not being clear in OP - trying to do too many things at once blush

Little individual cheese pies (very popular in greek cooking): something like this.

They're a bit of a fuss to make though, but not too much, & they're absolutely delicious.

Nairn's do mini oatcakes: great with mature cheddar and some nice chutney (I like Waitrose's redcurrant and red onion). Or cream cheese and any number of toppings.

Don't M+S do mini tartlet cases? You could put anything in those.

Smoked almonds are delicious.

Or you could get a jar of posh pate - tons of it around atm - and some cornichons (mini crunchy gherkins).

Or some foie gras pate with a brioche loaf and some fig jam.

oooh maria those do look lovely!

I really only want to include homemade things that can just be nibbled away at over a few days/week or so.

I can think of loads of yummy sweet things!

Oh would you mind sharing your oat cake recipe please?

We have guests next week and I'm planning on making some blinis and smoked salmon

Maybe also some kind of spelt bread cut in square or circles and a slice of boiled egg and guacamole, herbs to decorate on top.

Also thinking of picking up a few bits of sushi...x

Tiropitakia look delicious, do you think the filling would work in filo pastry?

sorry for late posting!! I haven't made them yet but this is the recipe that I found....

• 100g plain flour
• 100g oatmeal
• pinch salt
• pinch golden caster sugar
• 1 egg yolk
• 50g butter

1. To make the biscuits, mix the flour and oatmeal with the other dry ingredients. Add the butter and egg yolk with 1 tbsp or so of water, if necessary, to bring together.
2. Roll out the dough very thinly and cut into any shape you fancy. Chill for 20 minutes. Heat the oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Bake the biscuits for 8-10 minutes until very lightly coloured. Cool on a wire rack. Serve the pears with the biscuits and parmesan.
