Mom's Fancy Spinach Snack
Why I Love This Recipe
Ingredients You'll Need
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tsp minced garlic
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach - thawed, drained and squeezed dry
1 teaspoon salt
1 (4 ounce) package feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg, beaten
1 (16 ounce) package phyllo dough
1 cup unsalted butter, melted
Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Slowly cook and stir onionand garlic until tender, about 5 minutes. Mix in spinach and salt. Stir in feta cheese, sour cream and egg. Cook and stir until thickened, 5 to 10 minutes. Reduce heat to simmer.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Unroll phyllo dough sheets one at a time on a flat surface. Brush with unsalted butter. Cut into strips approximately 5 inches wide. Place 1 tablespoon of the spinach mixture at one end of each dough strip.
Fold the end of the strip over the filling so that it forms a triangle.
Continue folding the strip in triangles until a small, triangular stuffed pastry remains. Brush with unsalted butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough.
Arrange stuffed triangles on a large baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven 12 to 15 minutes, until golden brown. Serve warm.
