Sausage Cups



Oven 350 F

Approx 60 Appetizers

1 lb ground beef or turkey

1 tsp minced garlic

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1 tsp Frank’s Red Hot Sauce


½  red bell pepper, finely chopped

Crumble the meat into a frying pan over medium heat.  Add spices and cook till done. Add the red pepper and sauté for 5 minutes. Drain excess fat.  

½  cup of black or green olives, pitted

¾ cup grated sharp cheddar cheese

1/3  cup Ranch Dressing


Add ingredients and toss together.

Taste the mixture. If you want to heat it up, add an additional ¼ tsp cayenne pepper.

60 mini phyllo (fillo) shells, frozen

Fill the cups with a teaspoon and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 F  for 8-10 minutes until cheese is melted.


This makes a great brunch dish- substitute spicy breakfast sausage and omit the spices and olives.
