Salmon in Phyllo Cups
  • 1/2 8  ounce package  cream cheese
  • 1/2  cup  finely shredded cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
  • 4  sheets  (18 x 14 inches) frozen phyllo dough , thawed
  • 1/4  cup  margarine or butter, melted
  • 1 3 1/2 ounce can  skinless, boneless salmon, drained
  • 1/4  teaspoon  dried dillweed
  • 1/8  teaspoon  lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4  cup  buttermilk salad dressing

Cut phyllo stack lengthwise into three 18-inch-long strips. Cut each strip crosswise into six rectangles.<

2. Press each rectangle gently into a 1-3/4-inch muffin cup, pleating as needed to fit. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden. Cool for 5 minutes in pan. Remove from pan; cool completely on a wire rack.

3. Meanwhile, for filling, in a small mixing bowl beat cream cheese, cheddar cheese, salmon, dillweed, and lemon-pepper seasoning with an electric mixer until combined. Add dressing; beat until combined. Pipe mixture into cooled phyllo cups using tip with a 1/4- to 3/8-inch opening, or spoon a scant 1 tablespoon of mixture into each cup. Garnish with fresh dill, parsley, or thyme. Makes 18 appetizers.
