  • 8 slices pancetta thin slice
  • 1 package 15 each phyllo cups
  • 6 oz goat cheese softened
  • Whole Berry Cranberry Sauce about 1/4 cup
  • 1 Tablespoon scallions thinly sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon half and half or milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary extremely fine chop
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 cracks fresh black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pancetta slices on parchment paper lined sheet tray. Cook in 350 degree oven 15-18 minutes until crisp. Place pancetta slices on paper towel to drain off the excess fat and let cool.
  • Place goat cheese, scallions, rosemary, garlic powder and black pepper in a small bowl. With a spoon, stir to combine. Add in the half and half or milk and mix to thin the mixture slightly.
  • Pipe into phyllo cups (you can place cheese mix into a zip lock bag and snip off the end of one corner), you may have some leftover, save it to spread on bagels, YUM!
  • Place about a teaspoon of cranberry sauce on top of cheese. Top with half a slice of the pancetta, you can stick it into the cheese mixture like pictured or crumble on top. Serve immediately, enjoy!
