This is one of my favorite appetizer recipes. It is a big payoff for very little effort. My friend who gave me the recipe warned, “Be careful with these, they are so good you might make an ass of yourself eating them”. She wasn’t lying. They are so small and tasty, you have no idea that you have consumed so many of them. Of course, that didn’t happen to me. I never overindulge. 🙂 So, if you want a super easy appetizer that will impress your friends, try these.
Spicy Havarti Cups
2 packages of Athens Filo Cups (These can be found in the frozen section of most grocery stores)
1/3 lb of deli Havarti cheese (At the deli counter, tell them you want a big hunk and not slices)
Hot Pepper Jelly (DO NOT use green or red pepper jelly. You must use HOT jalapeno jelly)
- Preheat the oven 350 degrees. Grate the cheese and set aside.
- Place the pastry cups on a cookie sheet and fill with some cheese. Do not put too much cheese in the cups. Spoon about ½ tsp of pepper jelly on the cheese.
- Bake for about 15-20 mins or until cheese is melted and cups are lightly browned.
