Now that the Holidays are coming, its time to start thinking about easy appetizers and snacks for when guests show up. I came across this recipe on Kraft Canada’s website and I had to give it a try. Not only is it crisp and tasty, but its really easy to make and can be frozen in advance to have on the ready for when unexpected guests show up.
What you’ll need:
- 1 pkg (300g) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained and moisture squeezed out
- 1 pkg/tub (250g) of cream cheese
- 1 cup feta (regular or light)
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tbsp sundried tomatoes, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup green onions, finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- 15 sheets phyllo dough, thawed
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Top with two more phyllo sheets, brushing between sheets of plastic wrap. Make sure to keep remaining phyllo sheets covered in a damp dish towel to prevent them to drying out.
Spread 1/5 of the spinach mixture along one short side of the phyllo stack to within an inch of the ends.
Repeat process with the remaining phyllo sheets, spinach mixture and butter. You’ll have 5 logs, but I only was baking three at the time. Brush logs with some of the remaining butter. Score logs in 1 inch intervals to prevent the phyllo from cracking.
Cool 5 minutes and then transfer to a cutting board. Use a serrated knife to cut eat log into 6 slices.
If you would like to store these to use in the future, make them up into the rolls then tightly wrap in plastic wrap and freeze in a large resealable plastic bag. Remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 375°F and let stand at room temperature until oven is ready. Bake as if you made them fresh.
