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.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins are such a great way not only to use up all those ripe bananas but makes such an amazing breakfast as well.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

Often times when I cannot sleep I tend to bake. I am not a big baker as you all know if you are following me for a longer period of time, but I do like baking these simple baked goodies.

Bread, rolls and these types of goodies like these muffins are my specialties. Oh, I do enjoy the whole process of bread making.

Anyhow, these muffins are just fantastic on days when you just do not know what to serve your kids and no one is eating those bananas.

Banana Nut Oat Muffins

I had that exact problem, so this came really handy for two days. Having everyone home is not as easy as it seems even though I love having my kids all in one place.

That being said, this mama does need a break from time to time. So baking is definitely one great escape for me.

Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Banana Nut Oat Muffins are easy and tasty breakfast or brunch idea.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4-5 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly butter muffin tins. One large muffin tin or two smaller works just fine.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix then add rolled oats and chopped or crushed walnuts.
  3. Mash bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture
  4. Add sugar, melted butter, oil, beaten eggs, and vanilla. Mix well scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice. You can use an electric mixer but it is not neccecery.
  5. Mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated, together with oats and nuts.
  6. Spoon the batter into the muffin tins to fill them about halfway. Give them a rap on the counter to get any air bubbles out.
  7. Bake, until a toothpick stuck in the center of muffins, comes out clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before turning the muffins out.
  8. You can keep them in the fridge after they are completely cooled down. Make sure muffins are in the ziplock bag or container with a lid. Wam them up before serving.

Notes

You can add dried fruit or chocolate chips which is amazing in these muffins.

If you do not have oats that ios completely fine. You do not have to panic because they are great without it as well.

If you do not have walnuts you can use any other nut, roasted and unsalted; pecans, almonds, peanuts, etc. It just a great to have extra crunch.

Tangy Beet Salad

Tangy Beet Salad

Tangy Beet Salad

I don’t know if I should even call this tangy beet salad a recipe. It is so freakishly easy that I can’t even explain.

It is well known that I am a beetroot lover. I love beets in any form, texture, and taste.

On top of everything, it is such a healthy vegetable. I believe that I have always loved eating beets, especially picked version.

My kids are not big fans. However, they only are willing to eat my beet mixture or magical elixir, which I’m making before every season.

It boosts our immune systems so they do not complain. I mean it’s not like they have a choice. My magic elixir is a must in my house. Click on the link to read more, of course.

Let me continue talking about this tasty and rather easy beet salad.

It really is as simple as it sounds. The flavor is obviously tangy, savory, and extremely delicious. of course, if you love beets.

Nonetheless, if you do not like them just give beets a chance. Most people hate the earthy flavor, but with adding a bit of citrus and salt the taste is rather incredible.

I have a feeling that you guys going to like it a lot. You could mix it with a peppery, bitter almost prudent taste of arugula.

Tangy Beet Salad

I have seen people adding fruit with the arugula – beet combination, such as mandarine, peaches or oranges.

Now that sounds like an amazing lunch with the addition of pine nuts or walnuts. Don’t you agree?

I can almost taste the sweet fruit, tangy beets, and peppery arugula.

Tangy Beet Salad

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Additional Time TO CHILL: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour 40 minutes

Recipe for easy and tasty Tangy Beet Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds medium beets + 1 tbsp salt
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice *optional
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley or 2 teaspoons dried
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Peel and roughly slice beets however you want. I quartered them into bite-size pieces.
  2. In a pot pour about 4 cups of water and add 1 tablespoon of salt, then add beets.
  3. Boil until they are tender between 35 to 45 minutes at medium-high temperature. Drain out once the beets are tender.
  4. Meanwhile, mix vinaigrette or dressing by combing vinegar, lemon juice, olive, parsley, and salt to taste. I always add a bit more salt later and a splash more vinegar because I like it sour.
  5. Toss warm and tender beet pieces with vinaigrette and let it cool down for about one hour at room temperature. You can serve them like that or slightly chilled from the fridge.
  6. Any leftover could be packed in an airtight container or a jar and kept in the fridge for up to 3 days. Allow it to be at the room temp for about 15 minutes before serving.

Notes

You can use any vinegar that you prefer. Some people do not like it with lemon so you can add more vinegar and omit the lemon juice.

Wear kitchen (surgical) gloves if you do not want pink hands and fingers. If you do not, you can rub lemon for a bit all over your hands and fingers to "slightly" remove stains.
