Feta Cheese & Caramelized Onion Phyllo Cups

I’m usually a recipe follower, not a leader. I admit it. I’m not much of a recipe inventor, since every time I’ve ever tried to invent something, it usually turns out to be a disaster. (With the exception of my Saturday morning chocolate chip pancake recipe–I made that one up!)  But I decided to be slightly adventurous and just make up a recipe for the Christmas festivities at my house yesterday.

Savory and sweet, these Feta Cheese and Caramelized Onion Phyllo Cups are super simple to make, are tasty, and easy to eat, unlike many appetizers. My tasty treats went flying from the platter onto plates and into the mouths of my unsuspecting parents, cousins, aunt and uncle, who proclaimed, “delicious!” The flaky phyllo dough, with the sweet onions and tart feta proved to be a hit.

Feta Cheese & Caramelized Onion Phyllo Cups

2 packages Athens Mini Fillo Shells (30 shells)

1/4-1/3 cup feta cheese

1 1/2 cups finely chopped onions

3 teaspoons granulated sugar

3 tablespoons butter

To make:

Place fillo shells on a non-stick baking sheet. Spread evenly.

In a large frying pan, melt butter, and sauté onions with sugar. Cook for about 15 minutes on high or until golden brown and sweet.

Spoon cooked onion mixture into each shell, until almost the entire cup is full. Sprinkle feta cheese atop the shells.

When close to serving, bake shells for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees or until feta starts to look slightly melted.
