Broccoli-Cheddar Tassies

Our family adores broccoli casserole. I wanted to try it as an appetizer, so I used a pecan tassie recipe for the crust. The result? We’re talking scrumptious. —Gail Gaiser, Ewing, New Jersey
  • Total Time
    Prep: 45 min. + chilling Bake: 20 min./batch
  • Makes
    about 4 dozen

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • FILLING:
  • 1 package (16 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

  • In a small bowl, cream butter and cream cheese until smooth. Gradually beat flour into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.
  • Preheat oven to 350°. Shape dough into 1-in. balls; place in greased mini-muffin cups. Using floured fingers, press evenly onto bottoms and up sides of cups.
  • Cook broccoli according to package directions; drain. In a large bowl, combine egg, condensed soup, milk and mayonnaise; stir in cheese and cooked broccoli. Spoon about 1 tablespoon filling into each cup. For topping, mix bread crumbs and melted butter; sprinkle over filling.
  • Bake until edges are golden brown, 18-22 minutes. Cool in pans 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Serve warm.
    To Make Ahead: Dough can be made 2 days in advance. Freeze option: Freeze cooled pastries on waxed paper-lined baking sheets until firm. Transfer to resealable freezer containers. To use, reheat pastries on ungreased baking sheets in a preheated 350° oven 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned and heated through.

    So tasty! I skipped the topping and added some minced onion to the filling. For the crust, I used 8 oz of cream cheese and 1.5 sticks of butter. There was twice as much filling as crust, so you could double the crust or save the extra filling for later. I got 40 tassies from a single batch of crust. A wonderful holiday appetizer!
