Phyllo cup appetizer: the perfect NYE dish

December 31, 2016

I don’t know about y’all, but I struggle with appetizers! I’m constantly on the hunt for an appetizer that looks pretty, but is also easy — and this Central Market phyllo cup appetizer meets both of those requirements!


This recipe came to me from our neighbor, Aaron. And I know I’ve said this before, but we really hit the jackpot when it comes to neighbors. Not only do we have two neighbors who areΒ amazing chefs (and graciously share their recipes), but they are all genuinely good people. They’ve never led us astray, and this recipe is no exception!



My mom and I made this appetizer for Christmas, but it’s a great one for any time of year.



Does anyone have any other easy-but-pretty appetizers?! I’m all ears!

phyllo cups
caramelized shallots
peppered goat cheese
fig jam
diced prosciutto

After caramelizing your shallots, add a few to the bottom of every phyllo cup. Pipe the peppered goat cheese in on top of the shallots, then add a dollop of fig jam and top with a piece of prosciutto. Place in the oven and broil for a few minutes, just until the cheese begins to melt, but careful not to burn your cups. Enjoy!
