Introduction: Scrambled Egg Phyllo Baskets

I am learning different pastry variety and made the phyllo dough. With phyllo dough i tried some spicy breakfast recipe. I am using eggs for the filling. If you like you can add meat of your choice along with eggs. I added Indian spices to create the fusion of Indian and Mid Eastern Cuisine. Hope you like it.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 3 Tablespoon butter, melted
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 phyllo sheets, thawed
  • 3 Tablespoon grated Cheddar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Curry masala powder
  • A pinch Turmeric powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Basil leaves

Step 1:

Preheat oven to 190 degree C (375 degree F). Grease muffin tray.

  • In a cup, combine melted butter and minced garlic.
  • On a cutting board, stack 3 phyllo sheets and cut into squares.
  • Since i had 6 cup muffin tray i cut 6 squares.

Cover rest of of the phyllo sheets with a damp paper towel or cloth when not using it because it dries out quickly.

Step 2: Methods

Method 1 : Brush butter between each square phyllo of 3 layers and transfer it to muffin trays.

Method 2 : Press 1 phyllo into the muffin cup and brush with butter. Add another layer of phyllo and brush with butter and repeat third time.

I find method 1 easy as the tear or breakage of phyllo is less. Also don't worry if phyllo tears.

  • Sprinkle cheese on the phyllo cups.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until phyllo crust turns slightly golden.
  • Carefully remove phyllo baskets and cool it on wire rack.

Step 3: Prepare Scrambled Eggs for Filling

  • While phyllo basket is baking, prepare for the filling.
  • In a cup beat eggs and add pepper, salt, turmeric, curry masala and chilli powder.
  • Mix well, Melt butter in a pan and add the beaten eggs.
  • Scramble eggs to desired doneness.
  • Add the basil leaves.

  • Now fill the phyllo baskets with scrambled eggs.
  • Crunchy Phyllo baskets with Scrambled eggs is ready to serve.
