Scrambled eggs in a cup of phyllo dough! These look so simple and very tasty! Can't wait to try them! Found in Paula's magazine from Nov/Dec 2005.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter 4 muffin cups.
  2. Combine 4 T butter and garlic.
  3. On a cutting board, stack the phyllo sheets and cut into fourths, forming 12 squares. Cover with a damp paper towel when not in use because it dries out quickly.
  4. Crinkle one sheet into the bottom of each tin; it may tear and that's ok. Brush with butter. Add another sheet and brush with butter. Repeat a third time. Bake for 10 minutes. Carefully remove from tin and cool on rack.
  5. Beat eggs and 1 T water.
  6. Place 2 T butter in skillet and add ham. Add eggs and scramble to desired doneness. Sprinkle with cheese and stir until melted. Spoon in phyllo cups and serve.
