You know how it's the week before a holiday and you haven't figured out your snacky appetizer things yet? I feel you. One of my favorite go-to appetizer ideas is prepackaged phyllo cups. You can put pretty much anything in these little beauties and it will taste amazing. So no need to panic, today I bring you the solution to your dilemma about holiday appetizers: phyllo cups five ways. You are bound to like at least one of these!
One of the best parts about these phyllo cups is you can cook them in your big oven or your toaster oven. For me, on Thanksgiving especially, my oven is full. I cannot spare any room in there for appetizers, so I rely on my toaster oven. One package contains 15 phyllo shells/cups and they fit perfectly on the toaster oven tray. So yay for that! Of the five appetizers I'm sharing with you, I would say three of them are super easy and two of them are slightly more advanced and will take a little extra time. It was a tough choice to pick my favorite because I'm such a fiend for goat cheese, pesto and roasted red pepper. However, my pick of this bunch is the chicken cordon bleu bites. You will knock it out of the park if you serve these! So here are my holiday appetizers: phyllo cups five ways.
Mascarpone, Raspberry & Blueberry
Goat Cheese, Pesto and Roasted Red Pepper
Mild Italian Sausage & Cheese
Shrimp, Bacon & Lemony Breadcrumbs
Chicken Cordon Bleu Bites
