When I was hired by Athens Foods to create a savory recipe featuring their Mini Phyllo Shells, I knew I wanted something that would incorporate the flavors of the season. Naturally, I thought pumpkin. There aren’t that many recipes around that are savory and feature pumpkin, but the ones that are out there sure are good! I decided I need to do my part to help people know that pumpkin can really shine in more than sweet desserts this time of year. Pumpkin is a great ingredient in savory food too!
I modeled this recipe off of one of my all time favorite soup recipes. You may remember the Creamy Pumpkin Soup Shooters I created and shared a couple of years ago. They were a hit at our Thanksgiving feast, just like I know these Savory Creamy Pumpkin Cups will be popular at our fall festivities this year. I really appreciate recipes that are a cinch to put together in a time crunch and this recipe is totally that. With the convenience and ease of Athens Foods Mini Phyllo Shells, you can’t go wrong. I hope you enjoy this appetizer as much as we do!
