The perfect Christmas Canapes from award-winning chef Geo Bassani Lima: Turkey, pigs in blanket & cranberry tarts!


Ingredients (makes 10):

  • 10 sweet pastry tart cases
  • 120g cranberry sauce
  • 600g turkey breast
  • 10 pigs in blankets
  • 50ml olive oil
  • Pinch of salt


  • Prepare a baking tray with olive oil and place the pigs in blankets on it. Roast for 20mins at 180°c.
  • Remove the turkey breast from all packaging and season with salt and olive oil. In a frying pan, fry the turkey breast for 3 mins each side and place in the oven with the pigs in blankets for 10 mins or until cooked through.
  • On a separate baking tray, place the tart cases and warm through for 4 mins or until golden.
  • Meanwhile, remove the turkey breast and pigs in blankets from the oven and rest them on a chopping board. Cut the turkey breast into cubes or in circles using a pastry cutter.
  • To assemble the canapés, place one teaspoon of cranberry sauce into the warm pastry tart, top up with the pigs in blankets and a piece of the turkey breast.
  • Serve them on a sharing platter accompanied by a glass of mulled wine.
