Savory pockets filled with cheese, sausage and seasonings...what's not to like? This recipe makes a lot so it's ideal for parties or potlucks. If you don't need the entire amount, they do freeze well.—Virginia Anthony, Jacksonville, Florida

  • 1 jar (7 ounces) roasted sweet red peppers, drained and chopped
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped ripe olives
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Nutritional Facts

1 triangle equals 42 calories, 2 g fat (trace saturated fat), 4 mg cholesterol, 64 mg sodium, 5 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 2 g protein. Diabetic Exchange: 1/2 starch.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 10 ingredients. In a large skillet, cook sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir into cheese mixture.
  2. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface with a short end facing you. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Spray sheet with cooking spray; repeat with one more sheet of phyllo, spraying the sheet with cooking spray. Cut into three 14-in. x 3-in. strips.
  3. Place a rounded teaspoonful of filling on lower corner of each strip. Fold dough over filling, forming a triangle. Fold triangle up, then fold triangle over, forming another triangle. Continue folding, like a flag, until you come to the end of the strip.
  4. Spritz end of dough with spray and press onto triangle to seal. Turn triangle and spritz top with spray. Repeat with remaining phyllo and filling.
  5. Place triangles on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 12 dozen.
To Make Ahead: Unbaked triangles may be frozen on baking sheets; when frozen transfer to resealable plastic bags. Bake frozen triangles for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
