Mini Tuna Melts with Bacon, Aioli, and Gouda in Phyllo Shellls

The crisp, flaky phyllo shells housed the tender tuna and grated gouda quite well. 

I thought it would be fun to play around with different toppings to make the presentation pretty, so I chose lemon and garlic dipped avocado pieces, chives, and tomatoes. What a fun, tasty new invention!
