    Zurie's Note:

    These are so easy, and can be made ahead. To make more, simply multiply the ingredients. Store the phyllo cups airtight to stay crisp. (Otherwise, refresh them in a warm oven). This is a great snack, and a good side or starter with grilled meats! Top with mozzarella or bacon instead of ham. Our phyllo sheets measure about 14 x 16 inches, which are enough for 9 muffin hollows. Four sheets will give you a nice firm cup shape. Dressing should be added, if at all, at the last moment to prevent sogginess.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 4 phyllo pastry sheets
    • 1 ounce butter, melted
    • 1 tablespoon oil
    • 12 tomatoes, Rosa, small, cut up (the small plum tomatoes)
    • 6 olives, pitted, finely chopped (green or black)
    • 1 teaspoon garlic, finely chopped
    • 9 leaves basil, large, finely sliced
    • 1/4 cup spring onion, finely chopped
    • 2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
    • 1 pinch flaked sea salt
    • coarse black pepper
    • 1 -2 tablespoon dried breadcrumbs (optional)
    • 9 slices ham, Black Forest ham (or Parma ham, use thin air-dried ham or fried bacon or mozzarella cheese)
    • 3 tablespoons vinaigrette dressing (homemade or shop-bought)


    1. 1
      First, prepare and mix together the tomatoes, olives, garlic, basil, spring onions, parsley, and add salt and pepper sparingly. Mix well and cover the bowl.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350 deg F/180 deg Celsius.
    3. 3
      Open out the 4 phyllo sheets (one on top of the other, as it comes).
    4. 4
      Using a round utensil considerably larger than the muffin hollows, cut out circles right through the 4 thicknesses of the pastry. Brush each circle (4 per hollow) with the melted butter and oil, and press into 9 muffin hollows.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle some dried breadcrumbs over the pastry cups, if you like.
    6. 6
      Bake the phyllo cups for 5 - 7 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool before carefully removing.
    7. 7
      (All this can be done ahead, but keep the salad chilled and the cups airtight).
    8. 8
      To serve, fill the phyllo hollows with the salad. Top each with a rolled slice of ham (or bacon, or mozzarella).
    9. 9
      Drizzle with a little vinaigrette at the last moment before serving (to prevent the phyllo pastry from getting soggy).
