Spanakopita Triangles Recipe

 These make a fabulous appetizer!  I serve them at parties and people rave about them.  They are very easy to make and can be pre-made and frozen ahead of time.


  • 1 10-ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chopped dill
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 package of phyllo dough thawed


Squeeze out as much liquid from the thawed spinach until dry.
Mix spinach and next 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, beat 1 egg to blend: fold into spinach mixture.
  1. Place 1 sheet of phyllo on work surface, keeping remainder covered with a damp towel to prevent drying out.
  2. Brush lightly with some of the butter and pile 2 Tablespoons of spinach mixture in bottom right corner. Fold over diagonally into a triangle shape and continue folding up until you have a triangle package.
  3. Place on a lightly greased baking dish; brush with remaining butter.
  4. If making ahead, cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.
  5. Bake in 350 degree F oven until crisp and golden, about 45 minutes.
