Perfect for a night of entertaining friends, these phyllo cups are overflowing with delicious melted Brie, crumbled bacon, and sweet apricot jam.
3 tablespoons apricot jam
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
3 slices cooked and crumbled center-cut bacon
8 teaspoons Brie
8 frozen mini phyllo shells (such as Athenos), thawed
1 slice cooked and crumbled center-cut bacon
How to Make It
Combine apricot jam and vinegar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook 1 minute. Add 3 slices cooked and crumbled bacon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 3 minutes. Place 1 teaspoon Brie into bottom of each mini phyllo shell. Top evenly with jam mixture. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Sprinkle evenly with 1 slice cooked and crumbled bacon and fresh thyme.
I tripled. Each box of Phyllo cups contains 15. I made 24 and had enough of the apricot/bacon filling that I could have made 30, but didn't have enough Brie. And probably could have made the one wheel of brie spread further, but wanted them really cheesy. I ended up not topping with the extra bacon and it wasn't really needed. Also, the thyme is pretty, but these would be fine without if you are trying to keep cost down.I will make this often! Delicious!
