Oh boy I just was on my hubbies case for spending to much money on home repairs at the holiday time and I just spent $80 on cheese (well not all cheese but, mostly!)!!!
I mean I had to, my grocery store was having a huge sale and my uncle was talking all about it on Facebook all day & I could not stop thinking about cheese I just had to!!!!
I bought all sorts of fun stuff, so Im totally ready for any unexpected guest to stop in (so we don't eat it all ourselves)!!
I wanted to come up with something new and Christmas-e.
These little cups are very visually appealing with red and green , tis the season to eat to much, dang it just after I said we need to quit snacking late at night while watching tv and I have a house filled with treats!
Watch out treadmill you're gonna get a serious workout!
What you will need:
1/4 Cup Gruyere, shredded
1/8 Cup Fontina, shredded
2 Tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
4 slices bacon, fried and chopped
1 Package Mini Phyllo Cups, 12 cups per box
How to make them:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Start off by dicing up your bacon and frying that up into crumbles, drain and set aside
Chop up your chives set aside
Shred your cheeses
Mix those ingredients saving a tablespoons of chives for garnishing
Remove your phyllo cups from their packaging place on a baking sheet
Fill the cups with your with the cheese mixture
Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and sprinkle with your remaining chives
They are have a nice textured crunch to them with a gooey cheesy center.
If you don't care for the cheese's I used use what you like, they will turn out just great, you can't go wrong with cheese!
They are so easy to make and make a nice presentation and you can just pop them into your mouth!
