Spinach and Feta Phyllo Cups
This is a nice little appetizer I like to bring to family functions. This is one of those recipes that can easily adapt to your families taste. I LOVE garlic and actually throw in a little garlic salt, on top of what’s listed in the recipe, but that’s overkill for many.
heads lovers will love the duo cheese combo goin’ on. If I have goat cheese on hand I’ll throw a little in as well. Whenever I throw a ragin’ party in my mouth, cheese is usually a guest and he never shows up empty handed.
This recipe is made with Phyllo Cups, but you can easily substitute in Puff Pastry. Check out my Homemade Puff Pastry recipe if you prefer to go 100% homemade.
