Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Cheese Cups

Peeps, it’s the end of the weekend… wah-wah-wah!

But, I gotta tell you about this cray cray thing I did the other day – I cleaned the freezer!

I kinda hate cleaning that thing. And I have to say that it truly is amazing what one can find in the back of their freezer…

Don’t look at me as if you don’t know what I’m talking about…m’kay? 😉

I swear, it feels like the black hole is hiding back there somewhere.

There was this entirely white package with ice crystals all over it… I dunno what it was and, quite frankly, I was afraid to check. Mr. Garbageman took care of it.

He also took care of a bag of frozen something with a 2012 expiration date, and another something that turned black.

Somehow, in the middle of all that mess, I managed to find a good package of Phyllo sheets, expiration date, may, 2013. It felt like a victory!

So when one finds phyllo sheets, what does one do? One makes Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Cheese Cups, and one calls her mom over to eat. Believe it or not, these cheesy bites were our dinner.

It all started with an episode of Real Housewives of OC and a few cut up and buttered up phyllo sheets. During commercial breaks, I whirled some yogurt, cheese, sundried tomatoes in a blender… placed them in the oven, and TADA! Appetizer served! Or, was it dinner? It definitely was dinner for me and my Mama!

  1. Kate,
    These cups look stunning, and I bet they taste pretty darn good as well.
    I need your freezer contents–mine is filled with berries and tomatoes, though if I had a second package of phyllo I’d be so tempted to try and make the feta and caramelized onion things I love from Trader Joes, in addition to your tomato cheese ones.
    Lucky mom and you!

  2. I’m finally here getting the recipe. I really like this and I already have phyllo in the freezer and can’t wait to try this! Maybe this week if I get a chance…. Sun dried tomato is one of my favorite ingredients to use! YUMMY!

  3. I am so glad you got cray cray and cleaned out your freezer. 🙂 I have done that from time to time… it’s so sad the things we throw into our freezer to save and then we have no clue what it is. These look like a winner… you saved those phyllo sheets just in time. 🙂

  4. Sounds like a very tasty filling though I might be tempted to try some wonton cups instead of the phyllo for the base. I’m saving my package of frozen phyllo for spanakopita, galactoboureko or baklava … haven’t quite decided yet.
