Ham & Cheese Phyllo Cups

If you love delicious cheesy appetizers then this is the recipe for you.  These bite-size tartlets are simple to make and are a great appetizer for brunch or with cocktails.  I served them up in an egg dish for a more interesting presentation (for the Easter Design shoot).  Give them a try – it only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish!

Ham and Cheese Tartlets

  • 1 package frozen phyllo cups(15)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese blend (Mexican blend works well)
  • 2 slices baked ham, chopped
  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • dried or fresh chives to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and place phyllo cups on a baking sheet; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, shredded cheese, ham, and chives.

Spoon mixture by the tablespoon, into phyllo cups.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cheeses are melted.

TIP: Don’t have phyllo cups? Use slices of french bread and spread the mixture on top. Bake as directed.

    We make these sometimes, but it's a little bit different of a recipe and it uses hot breakfast sausage instead of ham, but the concept is the same and they are SO good! Love those phyllo cups to make quick little bite sized treats!

  6. Kayleigh says:

    What brand phyllo cups are suggested?

    Kayleigh, the only ones available here are the Athens brand "Fillo" cups. Love them!
