Food Fun: Easy Fillo Cup Recipes

Raspberry & Brie on the left. Goat cheese, caramelized onions, and thyme on right. OMG yes more please.

We recently celebrated the husband’s birthday with an amazing potluck dinner. I was in charge of bringing an app and dessert.

I’m a huge fan of those small fillo cups you find in the freezer. They’re about $2 for 15. I keep two boxes in my freezer at all times in case of unexpected guests. Fill the cups, bake them, done and delicious.

I tried two new recipes that night and they were so life changing I just had to share:

 

 

1) Raspberry & Brie: Fill the bottom of the cups with brie (about 1 tbsp) and top off with equal parts raspberry jam. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F and done.

2) Goat Cheese, Caramelized Onions & Thyme: Fill the bottom of the cups with a small spoonful of goat cheese (I found honey gouda goat cheese at Trader Joe’s – OMG heavenly). Sprinkle with a dash of dried thyme. Add a topping of caramelized onions. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F and done.

Honestly, the caramelized onions take the longest in all this – about a half hour to cook. I used 3/4 of an onion for 30 cups. While the onions are caramelizing you can prepare the raspberry & brie cups. Bake all the cups at the same time. Don’t know how to caramelize onions? It basically requires onions and a lot of butter. Here’s an easy recipe.

Do you need a quick dessert? Fill fillo cups with Nutella. I usually add mixed berries (fresh or frozen) to one half of the tray and peanut butter + a slice of banana on the other half. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F and done.

These recipes are a HUGE hit – they’re super tasty and easy to eat.┬áThere’s zillion more recipes for fillo cups, but I’m all about the easy ones that give me leftover cheese to eat.
