  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Arrange phyllo cups on an ungreased baking sheet.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and combine sausage meat and garlic. Cook until sausage is browned, about 5 to 8 minutes; drain grease, and add mushrooms. Stirring occasionally, cook 5 minutes more or until all liquid evaporates; remove from heat and let cool.
  3. Fill each phyllo cup with 1 tablespoon of the sausage mixture, and top with a pinch of cheese. Bake in a preheated oven 10 to 12 minutes, or until the cheese melts and the pastry is golden brown. Serve immediately.

I know this is my recipe but I wanted to give a tip. If you like yours a little crispier bake the tart cups for about 5 min before you fill them


This recipe turned out great! My family loved it. That said, I gave it 4 stars because I found it very confusing. First, why put butter in with sausage - it's already loaded with fat - and you're throwing it away when you drain. I saved the butter until the mushrooms were added. I suspect it can be omitted entirely. Second, I think the pound of cheese is waaaaay too much. The recipe says put a pinch on each tart - no way that uses a pound. I mixed 1/3 to 1/2 pound in with the suasage and mushrooms after they cooled, and that was very generous. There was so much cheese in the mix that a pinch on top was no longer necessary. In all fairness, I used grated instead of shredded cheese, but a pound is a pound. I also took the advice of others and pre-baked the tart shells for 5 minutes. I will definitely make this again with my slight modifications. Thank you for submitting this great appetizer.


I followed this recipe exactly and the bottoms of the shells were VERY soggy. I even drained the sausage really well. The taste was okay, I would probably recommend using less sausage and more mushroom, since you couldn't even taste them. I won't be making these again. I had to go to the store and come up with another plan for Christmas appetizers. Bummer...
