Fig and Goat Cheese Bites in Phyllo Cups – These easy, three ingredient appetizers are quick and easy, and taste amazing!  Serve these easy appetizers at your next Christmas party, New Years Eve bash or any other party!

The holidays are here, and you know what that means?  Food and parties!  And party food.  Throwing a party can be stressful, but don’t stress about the appetizers!  These Fig and Goat Cheese Bites are festive and fancy – but easier than you think!  With only three ingredients and ten minutes, you can be serving these cute goat cheese appetizers and wow your guests.

If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you know I am a fan of appetizers – especially appetizers that are easy to throw together but are delicious and impressive.  Like these Bacon Wrapped Dates, or these Cranberry Brie Mini Tarts.

I’m a big fan of using these mini phyllo cups, because they are so easy to use and they make super cute and delicious appetizers.  Not only did I use them in my Cranberry Brie Mini Tarts, but I also used them in these Pomegranate Goat Cheese Mini Tarts and these Easy Mini Baklava Cups. You can find these pre made phyllo cups in the freezer section at the grocery store.

Fig and Goat Cheese Bites in Phyllo Cups - These easy, three ingredient appetizers are quick and easy, and taste amazing!  Serve these easy appetizers at your next Christmas party, New Years Eve bash or any other party!


  • 12 frozen phyllo cups
  • 12 teaspoon soft goat cheese (chevre)
  • 6 teaspoon fig jam


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Place phyllo cups in a mini muffin tin or on a baking sheet.
  • Add about 1 teaspoon of goat cheese to each phyllo cup.  Bake for 10 minutes, or until cups are starting to turn golden and goat cheese is soft.
  • Remove from oven and top each cup with about 1/2 teaspoon of fig jam. (I prefer to have more goat cheese than jam in each cup so that it isn't overly sweet.) Serve immediately.

  1. These look wonderful! Making them for a dinner party tonight. I’m substituting spicy bacon jam for the fig, I had it on hand and have been looking for ways to use it. My guests will be here in a half hour, I hope they like them (I have a feeling they will)! Thanks for posting this recipe.

  2. I’d like to make these at someone’s house. Could I prep them at home, and bake after arriving at my friends’ house an hour or two later? They’d be thawed.

    1. Hi Chris – I haven’t tried making them ahead so I’m not sure. It might be fine but they might get a little soggy. I would keep them cold if you can until ready to bake. Also don’t put the fig jam on until after they are baked.

    1. Hi Kelly – I haven’t tried so I can’t be sure. The only concern I would have is that the goat cheese might get a weird texture after freezing. Let us know if you give it a try!

  3. These look amazing. Looking forward to trying them. What is the garnish u have in the picture? I would like to top it w/ a dolup of something crunchy but can’t have nuts. Any suggestions?

  4. I made these phyllo cups with goat cheese and fig jam. I put the phyllo cups directly on a tin foil covered baking tray. They were delicious and beautiful to look at. A perfect fall appetizer.

    My daughter made these for Christmas Eve and they were delicious!!!! I’m making them for the Super Bowl. My husband and I are looking forward to these.

  6. These look delicious! We’re hosting a family Bible study with appetizer potluck, and I’ve decided to try this and the bacon wrapped dates! Both sound delicious and only a few ingredients and baked in the oven so simple and doable for me for a small crowd 😊
