These vegetable phyllo muffins were quite tasty. The asparagus and scallions worked deliciously well together. Eggs, milk and cheese added richness and cheesiness, als lots of protein.

Phyllo pasty is a much healthier choice with a great texture. All the flavor and texture just balanced perfectly.
