  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tbsp finely minced white onion
  • 1/8 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • smoked paprika, for garnish
  • 1 loaf cocktail rye or cocktail pumpernickel rye bread


  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Lay the slices of cocktail bread evenly out over it, in a single layer. 
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients, except the oregano, to a medium sized mixing bowl. Stir to evenly combine. 
  • Spread the topping evenly out over the sliced bread. Sprinkle with smoked paprika, if using.
  • Place the pan in the oven, under a hot, broiler and watch the slices carefully. Cook until the cheese is golden brown on top, and the mixture's 'puffed' a bit. Do not leave them unattended as they will go from perfect to burnt quickly.
  • Remove the cocktail bites from the oven, and serve warm.
