Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

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.

 

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

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.

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Phyllo Triangles Stuffed with Cheese is an amazing appetizer, party food, or you could just eat it as a snack. Easy, simple, and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb. feta cheese, 1 pound block and you crumble the cheese yourself
  • 1 block cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tbsp sour cream (optional)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lb. phyllo dough thawed 20-24 sheets
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp oil

Instructions

  1. Mix eggs, and cream cheese with an electric mixer if possible, add ground black pepper then crumbled feta cheese. It is better to get a block of cheese than pre-crumbled, it takes you less than 20 seconds to crumble the cheese yourself, but it makes a huge difference. Trust me!
  2. Now take one phyllo dough and unwarp. You will find two in one package. These measurements are or about 24 sheets. Please read the notes.
  3. Place all the sheets on the dumbed cotton kitchen towel and cover. It is best if you work on a cutting board or similar.
  4. Melt unsalted butter and add two tablespoons of oil, mix well. You can use clarified butter instead. If non is available using only oil will work as well.
  5. Take one sheet and butter it completely. Make sure not to press too hard, just brush lightly with your pastry brush or similar, then place another sheet on the top. Run a sharp knife down the sheet lengthwise in half. You will have 2 triangles using two sheets of phyllo dough.
  6. Place two tablespoons of cheese mixture at the end of the strip. Fold over the corner to make a triangle. Continue folding from side to side till you get to the end of the strip. Place on a baking sheet. Brush tops with a bit of butter. Repeat the process until you’ve used up all of your fillings. I usually make around 12 to 14 with one half.
  7. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Allow these tringles to cool before serving. I usually serve them with salad.

Notes

  • Phyllo, Filo, or Fillo comes in all shapes and sizes but for this recipe, use 1 pound pack of sheets. Athens is the only available brand for me. I get it in Publix or Kroger, freezer section where you find frozen novelties or desserts; ice creams, pies, pie shells, whipped cream in the tub, etc.
  • The pack contains two 8-oz bags of (APPROXIMATELY) 20 sheets each measuring 9 x 14-inches.
  • My pack came with two like any other pack, HOWEVER, sometimes one pack has more sheets than the other and I was not aware until I started to WRITE this recipe because my facts were not matching. So one-half pack came with 24 sheets which would make 14 triangles. On the pack, it did say approximately 20 in each. The recipe is not off, it just that my box of phyllo was not correct. I just counted the other pack and it got only 18 CT. sheets.
  • WITH THAT BEING SAID, FOR THIS CHEESE MIXTURE MEASUREMENT YOU CAN MAKE 12 TO 14 TRIANGLES, DEPENDING HOW MUCH YOU ADD IN. For each triangle, you will need two sheets. I hope that makes sense to you if not just comment below.

The first time I tried Easy S’mores, Sweet Pizza, I knew that I would love it. It is sweet, delicious, chocolaty, and most definitely a crowd-pleaser.

So, it all started when my son’s girlfriend brought home a similar sweet pizza from our local pizzeria.

No, there is no healthy written in any bite that you take, but there is always pure bliss and satisfaction. Trust me on that one.

My kids, as well as my husband, loved it so much that I had to make Easy S'mores Sweet Pizza the next day again.

While many recipes use graham crackers for the crust I went a step further and made my crust from sugar cookies.

Yes, you can use store-bought sugar cookies that you find in your refrigerated section. However, you could make your own as well.

I included a recipe of my homemade sugar cookies in the recipe card just in case.

Anyhow, this one was such a treat. Well, a treat that I am not making often, but is so good every once in a while. If you never tried chocolate graham crackers then you are missing a lot.

They are simply fantastic especially in this Easy S’mores Sweet Pizza. We absolutely loved it!

Easy S'mores Sweet Pizza is super simple yet so delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 package Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup graham crackers, broken in pieces ( I used chocolate)
  • 1-2 cups marshmallows (miniature, regular size, or homemade)

Instructions

  1. Spread the softened cookie dough into a lightly greased pizza pan or use a silicone mat, flattening it to the edges. Note that the dough will rise a bit while baking like any cookie dough. Baking sheet 12.5 x 9.5 x 1 inch but you could go smaller, although the cookie crust will be thicker. Whatever you prefer.
  2. Press handful of chocolate chips into the dough, about 1/2 cup, use more if you wish.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes until it just begins to brown.
  4. Remove the cookie from the oven and sprinkle the top with the chocolate chips, graham crackers and marshmallows. Recipe for homemade marshmallows
  5. Return the cookie to the oven for an additional 8 minutes until crust is brown and chips and marshmallows are almost melted.
  6. Allow cooling slightly before serving. Garnish with more chocolate chips and marshmallows, if desired.

Notes

Homemade Sugar Cookies (Makes 2 smaller pizzas)

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar (Usually you would use 1 cup of sugar, but we are using it for as a crust so I used a bit less)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon milk


DIRECTIONS

  1. Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  1. Place butter and sugar in a large bowl of an electric stand mixer and beat until light in colour.
  2. Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  3. Divide the dough in half, wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  4. Remove 1 wrapped pack of dough from refrigerator at a time.
  5. Use two parchment papers, plastic wrap or wax paper to roll out dough much easier. This way you do not have to use additional flour or powder sugar to roll out and also it does not stick.

No-Bake Chocolate Almond Butter RITZ Bars are easy, tasty and fantastic to serve over the holiday season.

I have made this type of no-bake bar many times. What I love about this recipe is how versatile it is.

You can switch the nut butter you use, of course, to satisfy your taste buds, and use crushed pretzels instead of raw almonds.

It is all about creating your own tasty holiday RITZ bar and using your imagination to the fullest extent. 

No-Bake Chocolate Almond Butter Ritz Bars

I partnered with RITZ Crackers to create a recipe that would be excellent for the holidays. I realized that I have never posted this rather charming dessert that my family and friends surely love.

Since I have three teenagers, RITZ Crackers are always in my pantry. Thankfully we have family size crackers in stores these days, so it is like buying in bulk, which I favor.

To be honest, I really like it because I can create quick bites, pack them in my kid’s lunch box, add an addition for a charcuterie board, or make a dessert using RITZ Crackers.

No-Bake Chocolate Almond Butter Ritz Bars

These No-Bake Chocolate Almond Butter RITZ Bars are perfect for holiday entertaining. Not too sweet, swift to make, packed with great quality ingredients, and if I may add very delicious.

I urge all you, moms and dads, or grandparents to grab a box or two over the holiday season. Create mindful memories by making your own RITZ recipe with your beautiful kids and grandkids.
