Phyllo Cups with Pepper Jelly and Brie
Some of my favorite southern ingredients in one simple little bite!
Servings 15 appetizers
- 15 20 whole pecan halves
- 2.5 oz. country ham
- 1 pkg. 15 count frozen phyllo cups
- 8 tsp. red pepper jelly
- 4 oz. brie rind removed
- 1 jalapeno optional
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Place the pecans and ham on a baking sheet. Bake until the pecans are golden brown and toasted (7-8 minutes). Remove the pecans and return the ham to the oven to continue cooking until edges begin to curl (4-5 additional minutes).
Set the ham aside until cool enough to handle then break into small pieces.
In each phyllo cup, place ½ tsp. pepper jelly and a ½” cube of brie.
Bake until cheese is melted (approximately 10 minutes).
Optional - while the phyllo cups bake, slice the jalapeno paper thin using a very sharp knife or mandolin.
Remove the phyllo cups from the oven and allow to cool for approximately 5 minutes. Top each with a piece of ham, a pecan half, and a slice of jalapeno if using.
