Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese is a fantastic appetizer, party food, or you could just eat it as a snack. I grew up eating this tasty treat just stuffed with cow cheese mixed with eggs, then stuffed in the homemade dough.
Many of you call this one Greek Tiropitas. However, people from the country that I grew up in know it as sirnica, gibanica, burek sa sirom, or pita sa sirom and all that means cheese pie which is savory. I will post a recipe for my tasty cheese pie which is, in my opinion, better than a pizza.
I love phyllo dough. It is so versatile and we can make so many sweet and savory dishes or desserts using these incredible sheets.
What do you make with phyllo dough sheets? Usually, I would make it stuffed with ground beef, also known as Burek or Börek simply because my lovely family requests that one the most.
That being said, I absolutely love it stuffed with shredded potatoes, which are sauteed with onions and well seasoned prior to stuffing it in the dough.
Oh, my mouth is watering as I was writing this one, which is probably the reason to make it asap.
Anyways, these are phenomenal to pack for school or work lunch. When my kids were actually taking lunches to school I would pack these for them. They are convenient and delicious hot or cold.
Also, if you do not want to bake all these triangles at once just pack in between wax paper or parchment paper and place in an airtight container then freeze.
They freeze beautifully, but I am not sure about cooked pastry. They probably do freeze well too.
You see, in my house, they never last too long so everything is eaten as soon as I serve them on the table. Well, most of the time we eat it for lunch just like this with some protein on the side as well as salad.
I am sure that you would be able to air-fry them too. Nevertheless, I have not tried that one yet, but if you by any chance air-fry them, please let us know. I would love to hear how they turned out.
Another great idea is that you could add sauteed or defrosted pinch in the cheese mixture. Just make sure to squeeze all the moisture out.
