Delectable Caprese Phyllo Cups Are The Hit Of Every Gathering

Delectable Caprese Phyllo Cups Are The Hit Of Every Gathering

How often do you find yourself about to go to a gathering and you have no idea what to bring?  You want something quick and easy, but that guests will love too, right?  Have I got a winner for you!  Every time I make these Caprese Phyllo Cups, they fly off the platter and everyone wants the recipe. They combine basic ingredients of cheese, tomatoes, basil and balsamic vinegar arranged inside store-bought phyllo cups to make the perfect addition to any party plate.

Danae at Recipe Runner provides you with this simple recipe.  Hers calls for plain mozzarella balls, but I love using the marinated kind for a boost of additional flavor.  Another favorite twist of mine is using a flavored balsamic vinegar like strawberry or raspberry for a more complex glaze flavoring.  And lastly, try toasting up the phyllo cups for a few minutes in the oven before stuffing them.  Get ready to fall in love!
