    Do you think this recipe would also work with the cauliflower in cheese sauce that Green Giant also sells? I just prefer cauliflower, and think it would be more potato-y like! - 2/4/13

    these mini philo shells are no longer sold in any of my local stores. I've even checked online with no success. I would omit the cheese.
    another good mix is mushrooms, bacon, and black olives.

    You can prep this appetizer item for a future event. Just prep the cups and freeze. Take as many out as you need. They even work well for a grab and go breakfast. - 4/5/13
