Why You Should Make These Pomegranate Brie Phyllo Cups
Not only do these have a pretty presentation, but they are the perfect balance of sweet and salty.And let's not forget that these bites are portion controlled too.
What I love most about these phyllo cups is that you can easily prepare them ahead of time, wrap them with plastic wrap or aluminum foil and place in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake and serve. When I am entertaining, I love any recipe that can be prepped earlier, it is such a time saver.
Pre-made phyllo cups because you literally take them out of the box and line them in a baking sheet. I mean, it doesn't get any better or easier than that.
They get so crispy and toasty when you bake them in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
And the slight sweetness of the pomegranates paired with the saltiness of the pistachios complements each other perfectly.
And we can't not forget how pretty and festive they are! The red and green are perfect for the holidays, although I make these all year long.
- Phyllo cups - These are so easy to find at most grocery stores, especially during the holidays.
- Pomegranate seeds - The little seeds are inside of the pomegranate and have a slight little juice inside of them.
- Brie cheese - Slightly salty and creamy, this adds a wonderful texture to these phyllo cups.
- Pistachio- I like the dry roasted and salted pistachios. They are my favorite.
The possibilities are endless with these little bites. I've made these with cranberries and even raspberries instead of pomegranates and they both were delicious (and pretty too!)
I also used crushed pecans because I ran out of pistachios and they were just as delicious. The idea is to use whatever you like and whatever you have in your house to make it easier.
You can store any leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container. I like to reheat them in the oven at 300 degrees for 10 minutes instead of the microwave since they might get a little soft. Baking them in the oven helps to maintain the crispness.
