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!
Here’s what you will need:
- 15 mini phyllo cups
- 8 cherry or grape tomatoes, halved lengthwise
- 8 mini fresh mozzarella balls, halved (try the marinated variety for more flavor)
- 15 small basil leaves
- Balsamic glaze for drizzling (berry-flavored Balsamics are a delicious twist)
- Kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper for sprinkling on top
And here’s the complete step by step. Enjoy!
