I got some great new recipes in an email that I wanted to share with all of you! These look great for Holiday Entertaining! I like the idea that the shells are already done for you, which will make it a lot quicker in making your appetizers. I don't know if I have ever seen these in stores or not. If you have a recipe you would like to share, I would love to share it with my readers. Here are a couple of handy links of more recipe ideas.
There is also a recipe contest for the Mini Fillo Shells!
