Salmon Mousse in Phyllo Cups

Well with the holidays approaching, and the increase in requests for holiday appetizers I thought I would do some for the next few posts. These will be quick and easy, some hot and some cold. Some will be perfect for travel and some are for the party you are hosting. There’s something for everyone here the next few days.
The first one up is Salmon Mousse in Phyllo Cups. But I do have a confession to make. This recipe comes from my Mom, she makes it in a dip form I just took it one step further. She has been making this as long as I can remember…I always love it. I have been making it for my in-laws for the last five years, and now they are always calling me for the recipe (always a good sign). It’s great for travel, and you should be able to make it in about 15 minutes. I would let it chill for at least 4 hours, or better yet over-night.
Don’t forget about the Holiday GIVEAWAY!! There’s only four day left.

Salmon- 1 can
Cream Cheese- 1 package
Onion- ½ cup (small diced)
White pepper- 1 tbsp
Garlic Powder- 1 tbsp
Phyllo Cups- 30 (store bought)
Chives- To garnish
Method to the Madness
1)      In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients together and mix well. Let it chill in the refrigerator for at least four hours or over-night. Re-mix, and add a heaping tablespoon to each cup. Garnish with one chive about ½ to 1 inch long. You can also add Walnut pieces as a garnish; it also adds a nice crunchy texture.
2)      Place it on your favorite holiday plate. Wrap it in plastic, (careful don’t crush them) and take them to your favorite party.
3)      ENJOY!! They will be a hit, they always are!!
