These Phyllo Cheeseburger Cups take all the flavors you love in a cheeseburger and pack them into cute little cups. Depending on how many of these finger foods you eat, this recipe can be served as a snack, appetizer, lunch, or dinner!
The Athens Mini Fillo Shells used in this recipe can be found in the frozen section of your grocery store. I love to use them because they are already baked, making them really easy to use in any recipe.
Serving Sizes and Smart Points.
You will get 30 Phyllo Cheeseburger Cups out of this recipe. We ate these for dinner, and my family all agreed that eating 5 of these was enough for one person for dinner. For our purposes, I am assuming that you are eating 5 of these, in which case this recipe would give you six servings. Five of these Phyllo Cheeseburger Cups are just 3 WW FreeStyle Smart Points! Isn’t that great?
Since the math doesn’t equal out to 1 phyllo cup being exactly 1 WW SP, and because not everyone will be eating five of these, I am including this little list for reference:
