Mushroom and Basil Canapes


I have made these delicious little appetizers a few times for parties and everyone loves them. They are simple, but yet so yummy. You will need:
1 cup of mushrooms, chopped very small
1/4 cup of chopped red onion
3 Tbs. of extra virgin olive oil, divided
Salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup of chopped basil
1 pkg. of phyllo cups
1/4 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
1/3 cup of cooked and crumbled bacon
Chopped scallions for garnish (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Farenheit.
In a skillet over medium heat, add 2 Tbsp. of olive oil, onions, mushrooms, salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the onions and mushrooms are tender. Add the basil and bacon and stir. Remove from heat and let cool for about 10 minutes. Fill each phyllo cup with a scant tablespoon of this mixture. Top with the parmesan cheese. Drizzle the tops of the cups with the olive oil. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Garnish with chopped scallions. Enjoy!!
