Crab and Avocado Phyllo Bites

Quick, easy and delicious!

Quick and easy! These bite sized appetizers are the perfect treat whether you’re watching the game or just need some finger foods to munch on.

These were actually a happy accident. I had leftover fresh lump crab meat that I didn’t want to waste after making crab cakes so I whipped up this easy appetizer. They turned out really good! For best results, don’t fill the phyllo shells until you’re ready to bake, and eat right away!
