Ready to make these and receive praise for such a fantastic appetizer?

Preheat your oven to 350°F and mix together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, and bacon. Place the phyllo cups on a baking sheet and fill each cup with a tablespoon of the cheese mixture. Bake for about 15 minutes, until cheese is slightly melted and a bit browned on top. After removing from the oven, top each cup with shredded lettuce and tomatoes and serve warm.
