3 sheets filo pastry
25g butter, melted

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red onion, finely chopped
½ red pepper, finely diced
1 clove garlic, crushed
180g Piccolo Cherry Tomatoes, chopped
2 tablespoons cream cheese
2 tablespoons basil, chopped
25g parmesan cheese, grated
1 egg yolk
Basil sprigs and extra Piccolo Cherry Tomatoes for garnish


  1. Pre heat the oven to 180 Fan
  2. Put the filo pastry sheets onto a board and brush with melted butter. Divide each sheet into 16 squares. Arrange 4 squares on top of each other in a star shape. Push each filo star into a greased 12 hole mini muffin tin to make the filo cups cases.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan. Add the onion and pepper and fry for a few minutes. Add the tomatoes and garlic and fry over a high heat until the vegetables are soft, and the liquid has evaporated. Transfer to a bowl and leave to cool for about 5 minutes. Add the cream cheese, basil, parmesan and yolk. Season and mix well.
  4. Spoon into a piping bag. Pipe the mixture into the cases. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until the filo pastry is cooked and the filling has set. Add quarters of tomatoes and sprigs of basil on top of each one before serving.
