Brie Bites

We had friends over for an appetizer party and since I was going to be making a few dishes, I wanted them all to be quick, simple and tasty. I have seen recipes for these little brie bites on the Internet for a long time and I was excited to finally make them. These bites were a big hit with everyone, including the kids, and they disappeared quickly.

Brie Bites:
Recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net
 
  • 2 packages of mini phyllo shells
  • 8 oz brie cheese, double cream
  • Raspberry preserves
  • Apricot preserves

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Place the mini shells on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Carefully cut the rind off of the brie. Cut the brie into 1/2 inch cubes and put one into each shell. Top each brie bite with either apricot or raspberry preserves. Bake in the oven for 6-7 minutes or until the brie has melted and the phyllo shells are golden brown. Enjoy.

    Oooh, this makes me seriously regret being GFCF. I love all of those ingredients separately. Together…YUM! What a great quick and easy appetizer! Even my husband could make these!

    I've been agonizing over what to bring to Thanksgiving. (I was asked to do appetizers.) Nothing seemed both easy and festive enough. Now I know what I'm bringing!!! Thank you for the recipe!

    Pam… I love hor'dourves and appetizers. I've sometimes just wanted to fix several ~ all to myself ~ and enjoy each delectable morsel. Great idea with the puff shells filled with all the good things in your recipe. Thanks!

    The kids and I just learned this year that we liked Brie. I topped ours with caramel and toasted pecans but they were just on a ritz cracker. The filo cups are much yummier.

    I was just lamenting, to myself, that I don't make many appetizers. These are gorgeous! I was able to can homemade preserves this summer, including the two flavors that you made. These will be perfect for Thanksgiving. Thanks, Pam!

    Beth,

    Yes, you cut the rind off of the brie. Thanks for letting me know I missed this step, I have corrected it in the recipe.

    I've made these with gorgonzola, dried cranberries, chopped apply & walnuts. They were such a hit!

    The hardest part was finding those Phyllo shells. I'm in southern California and the regular grocery stores didn't have them (Ralphs, Alberston's, Stater Bros.) but the high end store, Gelson's, did have them.

    Definitely try these- they are so easy

    Bite sized are so great for things like football games and parties. We used to use shells like that as chips in poker. Problem is that hungry people always ended up broke :)
