Bacon and Tomato Cups

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

This is one of the first appetizer recipes I made after getting married.  And if I’m still making it 18 years later, you know it must be good!  The original recipe had you make little crusts in a mini muffin pan with refrigerated biscuit dough, but once I discovered the little pre-made fillo cups, there was no turning back. You can usually find them in the freezer section near the puff pastry and frozen desserts. Not only are these delicious, they come together in no time and can be made ahead and frozen.  I recommend cooking them from frozen and just adding a few extra minutes to the cooking time.

Who Dished It Up First: Honestly, it’s been 18 years and I can’t remember where I got this recipe.
