    Do bake the little phyllo cups? How far can these be made ahead and sever at room temp or reheat them?

    • Sommerposted April 14, 2016 at 9:40 pm Reply

      Hi Nannette! The cups are prebaked, but can be warmed in the oven if needed. You can make these one day ahead, but the cups won’t be as crunchy. I suggest making them the day you plan to serve them. :)

    These look so yummy! Do you think you could mix in the bacon and blue cheese? I’m not very fiddly when I’m cooking, and arranging little bacon and cheese pieces on top seems a bit time-consuming :)
