Hosting a last-minute dinner party and need a speedy appetiser? We’ve got you! Our easy Manchego and quince triangles are quite possibly the easiest canapés on our website. They only require three (yes just three!) ingredients, and take just 5 minutes to throw together!

The key to this recipe is sourcing the finest ingredients you can find. Trust us, it will make all the difference. We used an award-winning Manchego Curado DOP from Waitrose, which has the most gorgeous nutty finish – it pairs perfectly with the tangy quince jelly! We finish the Manchego & quince canape with a sprinkling of fresh thyme for extra flavour and a pop of colour!

Check out the full recipe below and elevate your entertaining game with minimal effort!


Follow these steps to make our Easy Manchego & Quince Canapés

1. Slice the Manchego

Start by carefully slicing your Manchego into triangles that are half a centimeter thick. The thicker the slice, the more sturdy it will be – but the fewer slices you’ll get from your block of cheese. You should get 15 or so slices from a standard 200g block.

2. Top With Quince Jelly

Carefully add a teaspoon of your favourite quince jelly to the widest part of your Manchego slice, being careful not to touch the edge of the triangle.

Top tip: if you’re preparing these ahead of time, we’d recommend choosing quince paste (also called Membrillo) over a quince jelly as it will be slightly less sticky.

3. Garnish & Enjoy!

Finish your Manchego and quince canapés with a sprinkling of fresh thyme. Serve them on a rustic wooden platter and dig in!

Frequently Asked Questions

What Can I Use Instead Of Quince?

Quince isn’t readily available in a lot of supermarkets, but there are alternatives. The fruit offers a gorgeous sweet flavour, which is often described as a combination of apples and pears, with a slight touch of rose. So, apple & pear chutney is your best friend if you can’t find any quince. A sticky fig jam would also work beautifully in this recipe.

What Can I Use Instead Of Manchego?

And what if you can’t get your hands on Manchego cheese? Not to worry, there are plenty of alternatives that can mimic its distinctive flavour and texture. We’d instead recommend slices of:

  • Parmigiano Reggiano 
  • Aged/Vintage Cheddar
  • Gouda
  • Pecorino Romano

How Do I Store Leftover Manchego and Quince Canapés?

If you happen to have any leftovers (though they’re sure to be a hit!), store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They should stay fresh for up to 2-3 days. However, keep in mind that the texture of the Manchego cheese may change slightly upon refrigeration, so it’s best to consume them as soon as possible for the optimal taste and texture.
