salt and white pepper to taste
1 (16 ounce) package
frozen phyllo dough, thawed
feta cheese, crumbled
shredded Monterey Jack cheese
butter, melted and divided
chopped Italian flat leaf parsley
These were great! I used the phyllo cups instead of the sheets, and they were a big hit. I will make these again.
Using fresh parsley is a must. I also cut the serving size down considerably, and it worked out just fine. Thanks for the post happycooker03!
Not sure that I loved these. Working with phyllo is really painstaking sometimes. I made these twice, once as a test run and the other as an appetizer for Easter. The second time I made these I was in a bit of a rush and put more of the filling in than I should've. The first pan all exploded all over, leaving me with a bunch of triangular phyllo packets with what looked like egg salad all over them. Also, you can't really make these ahead of time or the phyllo will dry out, but you also don't want to ignore your guests while you're carefully folding phyllo packets in the kitchen! They're not great cold, so I'm sort of at a loss as to how to successfully make these for guests. They tasted good warm, and I upped the feta bit to make the filling thicker and easier to handle and to give more flavor to it. Not sure that I'll make these again.
These little cheese pies are delicious. Authentic taste of Greece, and fun to make! I made these for a work Christmas party and served tzatziki (also from this site) on the side. Everyone loved them - a great change from the same hors d'oeurves you see every year. Thanks for this treasure!
Great recipe! We used to make these when I catered but I couldn't remember the amounts for each ingredient. Thanks for sharing this treasure. It is a sure hit with crowds! I always made in advance and froze to make a party less stressful.
Absolutely fantastic!!! Adults and kids gobble them up. They are easy to make, but time consuming. Will try using the phyllo baskets next time and may prepare in advance and freeze (before baking).
Tip: if making triangles, cut the phyllo with a knife before unrolling dough. Unroll just a third at a time. The rest will retain the right amount of moisture. Also, don't put in more filling then called for or it will ooze out during cooking.
I wasn't sure how these were going to come out at first but they were great. I used the phyllo cups instead and made the filling ahead of time and kept it in the frig until ready to cook. If you use the cups do not over fill or they will spill over. Will definately make them again.
These came out fantastic! I made these for our annual Christmas Eve party and they were the first things to go.
The only problem with them was that they leaked while baking, which is probably my fault becuase I used less feta cheese ( 8 oz)than the recipe called for. I did make them ahead and froze them on a cookie sheet. I may try it with some fresh mint next time instead of the parsley. My brother likes them with some sugar or honey on top, so good! A little time consuming but very much worth it with all the compliments you will receive =)
this was fantastic! i used mozzarella instead of monterey jack, b/c i couldn't find it, and added about 1/4 cup parmesan b/c i was a few ounces short on the feta! i put the mixture in mini phyllo cups and they were gone within minutes! delicious appetizer! great flavor! i did add a little garlic powder when i put the salt and pepper in too!
