Brie, Bacon and Fig in a Fillo Cup

DSC_0068

Brie is, without a doubt, is my most favorite of all cheeses.  It is today anyways.  I am often like a Labrador retriever, whatever is good at the moment is my favorite thing.  Walk time, it’s my favorite thing, dinner time, it’s my favorite thing, fetch, it’s my favorite thing, brie it’s my favorite thing.  When it comes to cheese, sometimes I think I’m kin to a mouse, because it is my favorite thing.  Add some bacon to it and I begin to swoon.

This appetizer has so many great elements to it, it’s crunchy, creamy, salty and sweet.  A veritable party for your mouth.  In addition, it has a short ingredient list and it is ever so easy to make.  Unexpected guest?  This appetizer is ready in less than 15 minutes.  Although quick and easy, I guarantee that serving Brie, Bacon and Fig in a Fillo Cup will please anyone.  Bonus, it is tasty at room temperature so you can make it ahead.

    Diana loves cheese and bacon. Not sure if she is more mouse than human. Thanks for the snack recipe. Fig preserve? Not even sure what that is. Willing to try though.

    Where did you get the fillo cups? I live in Toronto, but I’ve searched three grocery stores and nary a sign of them!!!

      Sarah, the fillo cups are by a compCany named Athens, I’m not sure they are available in Canada. If you can’t get pre-made fillo cups you can make your own by cutting squares of phyllo dough and shaping them in mini-muffin cups.
