Brie and Bacon Jam Bites

You've really hit the jackpot when you stumble upon the perfect bite-sized appetizer. I think the biggest challenge with cocktail party foods is finding something that's delicious yet easy to eat. Just take a few minutes to scroll Pinterest and you'll find a plethora of foods that are adorable but their functionality falls flat.

Well, not these little babies.

Sweet and salty bacon jam baked on top of melty brie cheese in a crispy phyllo cup. They're easy, they're delicious, they're easy to eat and still carry on a conversation. If you're still perfecting your New Year's Eve party may I suggest adding these to your menu.

Oh, I highly recommend making a double match of these.



-8 slices of bacon, chopped
-1/3 cup apricot preserves
-1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
-6oz wedge of Brie cheese, frozen for 1 hour
-15 phyllo cups

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In a frying pan over medium high heat, cook the chopped bacon until crispy. Drain the fat and return chopped pieces to the pan. Add the preserves and vinegar, stir until incorporated and simmer for 6-8 minutes.

3. While mixture is simmering, dice the cheese into chunks. Lightly grease a baking sheet and place the phyllo cups. Fill each cup with a piece of cheese and top with the bacon jam. Bake for 10 minutes.
