Calories 60kcal


  • 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.
