Ham and Brie Phyllo Bites

  • Prep time 20 mins
  • Cook time 20 mins

This recipe is a little tricky for first timers but well worth the attempt. I could not stop eating these when we tested them. I polished off about 10 and they are delicious!



  1.  Preheat a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and onions. Sautee onions until they begin to turn brown. Add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Once sugar is melted add water and continue to cook until onions are soft and water has evaporated, approximately 1 minute. Set aside in a bowl.
  2.  Place ham and brie separately into two small bowls.
  3.  Preheat the oven to 400°F
  4.  Here comes the tricky part. The secret is to be prepared and move quickly. Remove one piece of phyllo (being sure to keep the other pieces covered with a slightly damp tea towel). Cut phyllo in half width-wise. Melt remaining butter in small bowl. All to cool for a couple of minutes.
  5.  Lightly butter half of each piece and fold in half (see step 1 in the attached folding instructions document). Place approximately 2 teaspoons of ham, 1 piece of brie and ½ teaspoon of onions in the top middle of each sheet, lightly butter 1/3 of each sheet and fold over (see step 2 in attached document).
  6.  Lightly butter the bottom ¾ of each sheet and fold the ¼ down (see step 3 in attached document).
  7.  Fold over 1/3 of each sheet (see step 4 in attached document). Lightly butter the remaining portion of each sheet and roll up (see step 5 in attached document). Seal the end with a little butter.
  8.  Repeat steps 4 through 7 until filling is used up.
  9.  Place on a greased cookie sheet, place in preheated oven and cook until pastry is golden brown, approximately 15 minutes.


  •  As a substitute for ham use small pieces of cooked chicken breast or your favourite precooked protein.
  •  Brie is our favourite but gorgonzola would also worked very well for blue cheese lovers
  •  Dessert option: Omit the ham and substitute with fresh blueberries or a small piece of chocolate
