Spinach and Feta Bundles

Spinach and Feta Bundles
Recipe by Dragon

These easy to make, Greek inspired appetizers are going to disappear quickly. Be sure to make plenty of these lovely little bundles of joy. Enjoy!

Makes: 18

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 tablespoon oregano, finely chopped
2 tablespoons parsley, finely chopped
1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 eggs
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 sheets of puff pastry, thawed

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375 F.

2. In a skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil and sauté the onions until they are tender. Add the garlic and sauté for another minute.

3. Add the spinach and cook for 5 minutes. Add the herbs, feta cheese and lemon juice; mix well. Transfer the spinach mixture to a bowl.

4. Whisk one of the eggs and add it to the spinach mixture; mix well.

5. Cut each of the puff pastry sheets into 9 equal squares. Spoon a small amount of spinach into the center of each square. Don't add too much or they will not close properly. Bring the corners of each square to the middle and create little bundles by pinching the dough together at the top.

6. Place the bundles on a baking sheet. Whisk the second egg and brush the tops of the bundles with the egg. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until golden.

Amanda said...

Mmmm, spinach and feta, one of the world's best combinations. I like they way you bundled them; just a little different (and cuter)than spanakopita!

Amanda @ Mrs.W's Kitchen said...

Very pretty! These are tempting, Dragon... only... there's just something about feta+spinach that I don't like. I have no idea why. I love spinach. Love feta. Together, not so much. :(

Why is that, Dragon, why? I want to be like everyone else and like the combo!

Núria said...

burpandslurp said...

if you dished this out on a tray to me, they would all be gone in a flash! very impressive, adorable delicious little bundles! I bet you can use phyllo dough, too!

Sara said...

Spinach and feta is such a great flavor combination. I can imagine how good it would be wrapped in pastry!

Just look at that light and flaky golden brown pastry! The spinach filling sounds really good!

Jackie @ PhamFatale.com said...

It looks so professional. Your dough looks perfectly flaky. I've just bookmarked your site.

gaga said...

I love this as an alternative to spanakopita. I hate working with delicate filo dough, so this is perfect!

Peter M said...

Nice Greek touch, I made something similar by turning phyllo in purses....and yes...gone in minutes!
