Light and soft with a bit of crunch, these bourekas are one of my favorite appetizers for holidays. They can be filled with almost anything, but spinach and feta are my favorite fillings. Topped with everything seasoning, these Middle Eastern triangles are out of this world. —Alex Stepanov, Matawan, New Jersey

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 pound fresh spinach, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/2 cup whole-milk ricotta cheese
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon everything seasoning blend


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add spinach, shallots and garlic; cook and stir until wilted, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat; strain off any excess water. Stir in salt and pepper; set aside to cool to room temperature.
  2. On a lightly floured surface, unfold puff pastry. Cut each sheet into 4 squares. In a small bowl, combine feta and ricotta; stir in spinach mixture. Spoon cheese mixture diagonally over half of each square to within 1/2 in. of edges. Brush pastry edges with egg. Fold 1 corner over filling to the opposite corner, forming a triangle; press edges with a fork to seal. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets. Brush remaining egg over pastries; sprinkle with seasoning blend. Bake until golden brown, 25-30 minutes.

Can you freeze Spinach and Feta Bourekas?

Freeze unbaked pastries on a parchment-lined baking sheet until firm. Transfer to an airtight container; return to freezer. To use, cook frozen pastries as directed until golden brown and heated through, increasing time to 30-32 minutes and covering with foil if pastries begin to brown too quickly.
