TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - Chef Sergio stopped by the Good Morning Show and shared his recipe for brie and bacon jam phyllo cups.

Brie and Bacon Jam Phyllo Cups

Total Time - 20 minutes (Makes 30 servings)

Ingredients:

4 oz brie cheese

4–6 stems of fresh chives

1/4 cup of blackberry preserves

1 tablespoon chipotle hot pepper sauce

2 (1.9 oz) boxes of frozen phyllo cups (30 cups)

2/3 cup Bacon Jam (see recipe)

Steps:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut brie into 1/2-inch cubes. Thinly slice

chives (2 tablespoons). Whisk together preserves and hot sauce in

a small bowl until blended; set aside.

2. Arrange phyllo cups on a baking sheet in a single layer. Place one cube

of brie in each cup. Top brie with 1 teaspoon of bacon jam. Bake 7–10

minutes until the cheese is melted.
