Malagasy people love to entertain. Maybe it’s because we usually have large families and gathering around food is part our culture. Since I’ve been in the US and especially California, I’ve become very fond of the Filipino culture probably because their culture reminds me of mine. I’ve noticed that for them everything is an excuse to have a feast and fun, and I just love that!

When we so often the party, you need a good recipe . I love this recipe because it’s really simple; the secret is that it’s semi homemade. You buy the frozen little phyllo (or fillo, I’ve seen it spelled that way too!) shells and you garnish them with anything you like. As usual, you have your base which is the shells, eggs and cream. And then you let your imagination run wild!

Today, I made gruyère and crab mini quiches and caramelized onions and goat cheese. The beauty is that it’s ready in less than 30 minutes from beginning to end. I’ve made those with salmon before or the classic bacon and cheese version. There is no limit to the combinations, you can do whatever your heart desires!

The Phyllo crust lightens up the bites and unfortunately renders them highly addictive! Once you start popping one in your mouth, it’s really hard to stop! Consider yourself warned! 😂 Enjoy!
