Bacon Rotel Cheese Appetizer Cups

Ryder, my youngest son, adores our one-year-old Bassett hound. He really is helpful with her and wants to wake her every morning and feed her. This is great for me because I’m usually rushed from blogging running, making lunches, and cooking breakfast. He’s not real efficient at it so I didn’t think much this morning when he was in her room, aka the laundry room, a long time. When he did finally re-appear, he said, “Mommie, just in case I ever need to sleep there, did you know I fit perfectly on Summer’s bed?” Ahhh, life with boys!

I used phyllo sheets and molded them in mini muffin tins in the picture above because I had phyllo that needed to be used. Fill free to use the sheets, or the pre-formed phyllo cups which are easier and faster to work with.

  2. I love bacon cups! My friends mom introduced me to them. I use either the flakey biscuit rolls or croissants interested of phyllo. But, I’m going to try it out and see how it tastes. I get the buttermilk biscuits, forgot to mention that.
    Everything else is the exact same way ingredients,mini muffin pan, cook time is until the crust is tan in color and bake temp is the same.

  3. 5 stars
    I am attempting to make the cups myself for the first time. having looked at other recipes for making cups, I am quite unclear about whether you filled the ‘raw’ cups and baked everything at once, or if you made/baked the cups and then baked them again with the filling. Guidance?

  4. Guess what will be included on this year’s Superbowl snack tray?! Thanks!! 🙂

      1. Most grocery stores carry them. They’re located in the freezer section by the pie crusts.
