These easy holiday appetizers are made using pre-made phyllo cups. I love the easy prep involved in making these baked goat cheese bites.
And the phyllo cups are the perfect one-bite size. Talk about easy entertaining! Serve them with a stack of napkins for a no-fuss idea.
To prep this easy holiday appetizer, remove the phyllo cups from the package and place on a baking sheet.
Scoop one teaspoon of goat cheese in each cup and bake at 350 degrees for 3-5 minutes. This crisps up the phyllo for an incredible crunch and allows the goat cheese to soften just a bit.
Once out of the oven, top with a few pomegranate seeds, a drizzle of honey and a fresh sprig of thyme. Yum!
