Fig and Brie Bites

I have a bad habit of biting off a little more than I can chew. I don't know why I do it to myself, I just can't help it. Especially when it comes to food. I am the girl who thinks she can bake a 3-layer cake from scratch in the hour before work while simultaneously cleaning the kitchen and getting ready to go in for a shift.

 It's just who I am. But, that is why I am so grateful when I find recipes that taste and look fancy-pants, but require minimal effort to assemble.

 Thus, I present to you a new favorite party-food-go-to: Fig and Brie Bites.

Now, the secret to this breeze of a bite is that I buy the baked phyllo shells pre-made at the store. Stop your gasping, we all have to cut corners somewhere!
   And these little guys are pretty awesome, I'm stuck on this combo right now but I feel that the versatility here is endless.

 For now-I take a little bit of a Fig spread( I love the richness of the fig) and a wedge of brie cut into small pieces. Pop it into the the mini shells and pop those into an oven for about 8 minutes.

The taste is fantastic. And the work level is somewhere around a 2. Only because you have to open the box that the shells come in.

Now go grab some wine, make these babies, and get your classy on!

Fig and Brie Bites


  • 2 boxes of pre-baked mini phyllo shells (usually 15cnt.)
  • A few tablespoons of good Fig spread (I love Dalmatia)
  • 1 wedge of brie

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place phyllo cups onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment.
Cut the rind away from the brie, and cut the cheese into small pieces. Spread a small amount of the fig spread into each cup, and then top with a chunk of brie.
Bake for 8 minutes, or until golden and melted.

These are awesome warm, but also great served at room temperature.
