Shrimp Toast Cups

These appetizers always disappear quick as a flash. The pretty toast cups lend themselves to other favorite fillings, too! —Awynne Thurstenson, Siloam Springs, Arkansas

    Made these for Christmas Eve's appetizer. Rave reviews!! Everyone wanted the recipe. I used frozen shrimp, not canned.

    Question: Do these toast cups stay fresh if made the day before?

    Used this recipe last night and it was a hit! I added to it a little though! I used pre-made phyllo cups instead of making the bread cups. I used wasabi horseradish and I added finely diced red pepper to the mix as well as lemon juice to taste. That really ramped up the flavor!! Oh and I didn't use the dill sprigs!

    I was looking for something different and made these for the holidays. They were a smash. I did however use small frozen shrimp and cut them up instead of the canned shrimp because the canned was outrageously expensive in comparison.

    I made these for a gathering last night and everyone went crazy for them. I think next time I might try using whole wheat bread instead of white.
