garlic, finely minced
1 (8 ounce) package
crumbled feta cheese
2 (10 ounce) boxes
frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
3 (2.1 ounce) packages
pre-baked mini phyllo dough shells
This turned out really good! I cut up about 5 strips of bacon into little tiny strips, minced 8 garlic cloves finely, minced 4 shallots finely and sautee it in a wok. Then threw in 16 oz. spinach (squeezing the life out of it first). Turn off the stove and added 5 oz. garlic & herb feta cheese and 1/2 of grated parmesan cheese. While the oven is preheating, I filled 15 mini phyllo cups (one package) with the filling, added diced tomato on top, and topped it off with mozzerella cheese. Baked it for about 8-9 mins. at 350 to melt the cheese and get the phyllo cups crisp! OMG, can't tell you how delicious it was! I made 30 cups in all but still have enough filling for another 15 cups which I'll be back in the store picking more up tomorrow! Thanks for the sharing this great recipe!
I was so disappointed with this. After all the amazing reviews, I was expecting a tasty outcome. Instead, I was overwhelmed with the spinach taste. Maybe I should try all the extras (tomatoes, etc.) if I ever try this again.
If I could give this recipe more than 5 stars, I would. I made some changes based on the advice I found here and the results were STELLAR: 1.) Use Garlic/Herb Feta. 2.) Doubled the amount of fresh garlic used (we love garlic at our house) 3.) Add a half cup of Parmesan to the mixture. 4.) Diced Roma tomatoes on top of the mixture after it's in the shells (but BEFORE baking) 5.) Shredded mozzarella on top of the tomatoes. These changes resulted in an absolutely delicious winner of a recipe that is on my permanent keep list.
Well, I decided to use this recipe to go with a pasta dish that we were having with dinner. I thought that 30 to 40 of these little guys would be way to much but I figured we would eat them as left overs anyway. Well they came out absolutely perfect. I chop my garlic so that its in fairly large chunks and I basically doubled the amount because we love garlic so much. These things had the perfect blend of flavors and we ended up eating all of them with the meal. I give this recipe 5 stars for being quite simple, quick to make, and having wonderful flavor. A great appetizer or even just a healthy snack on rainy afternoons.
Simple and very tasty. I did tweak it a bit(not that you need to).I Added two eggs, some finely chopped and sauteed mushrooms, finley chopped black olives,a teaspoon of crushed oregano,some black pepper and sprinkled the tops with some parmesan cheese. Excellant, Thanks !!!
As another user noted, these are an excellent starting point and I have had tremendous success with making them. I've always added a bit of cream cheese and fresh garlic. I've also done a version with artichoke hearts and parmesan. They are soooo easy and are always a big hit. I think next time I may try the sundried tomatoes another user mentioned - yum...
These were good but everyone thought they needed more sauce. I would add a little mayo to moisten them.
These were delicious; I served them with Francis Coppola Pinot Noir and it was a perfect combination. I used garlic & herb crumbled feta and still added the fresh garlic. Very tasty! I will make these again!
