FETA & SPINACH MINI PASTRIES

January 5, 2018

Please prepare yourself, because these pastries are going to vanish. Their savory goodness and perfect mini size will keep people grabbing at them until they’re gone. Served at a party, I suspect you’re going to get more than a few recipe requests.

Frozen puff pastry. It it so handy. But like side note, I’ve never ever seen an off-brand version. Like, who carries one?

    i think trader joes sells their own brand of puff pastry — though i can’t be for certain. and i remember looking for it once during summer months and an employee told me they only had it around christmastime.

    • Rachel Schultz

      that’s super good to know thank you.

  • Cheryl

    Have you tried to use filo pastry? Also to use cottage cheese? I live in New Zealand and a cook in a cafe always looking for new ideas.I happened to come across your blog on about.com.

    I made these for a Christmas brunch this past weekend and sure enough, they were a hit. I did have a few recipe requests, but the thing that really shows how delicious these things are is that my relatively picky toddler calls them cookies. He refuses to acknowledge they are anything but dessert. Also, I ran out of puff pastry and didn’t have time to make more (I used Gordon Ramsey’s ruff pastry recipe), and used two premade pie shells rolled together (rolled to be as thin as one crust) for the second half of the filling. I couldn’t actually tell the difference.

    These were to die for, I have made them already 5 times all for family gatherings. The only thing I did them different (for the life of me I couldn’t seal the triangle) I put the squares in a mini muffin pan and then filled and baked them. They were the most delicious, prettiest cups ever. Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe with us :)

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks Yani! I’m craving them now too.

    Hi Rachel, I’m a little confused….when you combine the skillet foods in the bowl with the feta, green onion, s&p and two eggs won’t the mixture be runny? Are the eggs suppose to just cook in the pastry? Sorry if these seem like silly questions, I have never cooked anything but scrambled eggs and never cooked pastries but I want to try this. Thanks! :>

    • Rachel Schultz

      No, the feta makes it thick. THe egg will cook inside the pastry. Not silly! So glad you asked and that you’re trying out cooking!

  • Lulu

    This recipe looks fab…do you think you can freeze ahead? Maybe even before they are baked?
    Thank u :)

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes, I think you could freeze them ahead of time. Good idea!

  • Dot
