Cheesy Spinach Phyllo Triangles RECIPE

Working with phyllo dough is very tedious but the final product is so rewarding!  Bring your patience when making this recipe.

Previously I shared this Autumn phyllo recipe:

Printable Recipe

1 package cream cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 medium onion (finely chopped)
1/4 cup chopped frozen spinach
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
melted butter
1 package of phyllo dough (thawed in the fridge for at least 24 hours)

Begin by making the filling.  Saute the onion and spinach in a little olive oil until the onion is soft.  Set aside and allow to cool.  Place the cream cheese and parmesan cheese into a food processor and pulse until combined.  Add the cooled onion/spinach mixture and the cayenne and pulse until combined (see picture below).

Take the phyllo dough out of the package and cut in half (I found that this filling is only enough for half a package of dough).  Place remaining half back into the fridge and use within one week.
The instructions for the phyllo dough will suggest placing a damp towel on top - I found that even lightly damp caused the dough layers to stick together, so just beware that this might happen.
I cut the half dough into 3 strips (see picture below).  Each triangle will use 4 sheets of phyllo dough.  Brush a little melted butter in between each of the 4 layers.  Place a tablespoon size of filling onto the right bottom corner and then fold upwards (see diagram at the top).  Continue folding until a triangle is formed (see stages below).

Spread a little more melted butter on top of each triangle and then sprinkle on some parmesan cheese.

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes (or until desired golden brown color is achieved) see picture above.

Allow to cool a little (filling will be very hot).
Serve & ENJOY!!
(I even like them cold - see picture below).

CRANBERRY TURNOVERS
You can make these turnovers by using leftover whole cranberry sauce (leftover from Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner).

CHOCOLATE GANACHE WITH HAZELNUTS TURNOVERS
Homemade ganache is quite easy - heavy cream and chocolate chips.  Add a few hazelnuts, then freeze and use as a filling for these delicious pastries.

  1. These look good! I have a crockpot spinach and artichoke dip that would probably make a good filling... So one strip rolls up to make one triangle? I pinned it. I'd like to try it sometime.

    1. Thank you. Actually, I took a new package of Phyllo dough and cut it in half (I put half in the fridge to use later). With the other half I cut into 3 strips (trying to make the strips equal size). Then, each spinach triangle will have 4 of the cut strips (with a little melted butter in between each strip). You will pile these 4 strips with melted butter in between before you add the filling. The final step is folding the 4 layered pile into the triangle as seen above. (I hope that helps and doesn't make it more confusing).
