These crispy pockets of spinach and feta cheese with a hint of oregano look like a lot of work, but after assembling a few, you zip through them.—Mrs. Jody McIntyre, Burns Lake, British Columbia

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) crumbled feta cheese
  • 12 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray

Directions

  1. In a nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook onion until
  2. tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in spinach and oregano; cook over medium-low heat just until spinach is warmed. Drain. Remove from the heat; stir in feta cheese and set aside.
  3. Spray one sheet of phyllo dough with butter-flavored cooking spray. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent drying.) Fold dough in half lengthwise; spray with butter-flavored cooking spray. Cut dough in half lengthwise, forming two strips.
  4. Place 1 tablespoon of spinach mixture on lower corner of each strip. Fold dough over filling, forming a triangle. Continue folding, like a flag, until you come to the end of each strip. Spray with butter-flavored cooking spray, making sure all edges are sprayed and sealed. Repeat with remaining phyllo and filling.
  5. Place triangles on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack. Serve warm.
