Cucumber-Tomato Bruschetta in Phyllo Cups

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

In the past few days, I have become very excited about Fall -- I'm not sure if its the cool(er) temps in Chicago this week or the fact that the first Ohio State football game is just a few weeks away.  BUT for now, I'm going to share this great summer appetizer with you.  Easy enough to throw together for a last minute gathering, but impressive enough to share with guests.

  1. SO good and very easy to make. Served them at a friends get-together and everybody wanted the recipe!

  2. I made this last weekend for a summer cookout after having it at the Schlater reunion. Then my sis-in-law used it this weekend too! Loved them! Haha, I also made the chocolate peanut butter cups and then lemon/lemon buttercream cupcakes...yummm! Thanks Mag-Pies!

  3. Hi! Where can I find phyllo cups? My neighborhood Dominick's does not carry them :(

  4. Rachel - I found phyllo cups at my local Treasure Island and Potash Market in Chicago. Perhaps your store manager will order them if you request :) Good luck finding them!
