Filo pastry (also spelled phyllo) is a dough of paper thin sheets that becomes flaky when cooked. It is traditionally is used in Middle Eastern and Greek recipes and wrapped entrees and desserts.
These filo triangles are a perfect balance between the sweetness of the pumpkin and the saltiness of the feta. Ideal for a snack or as a party nibble.
To make this classic Greek citrus cake, filo pastry is shredded and mixed with an orange filling then baked.
Chicken breast halves and a tasty mayonnaise, lemon and garlic sauce are wrapped in filo pastry then baked. Yum! I used to make this special recipe when I ran my own catering company years ago.
A beautiful and elegant entree or snack, three kinds of cheese and spinach are rolled up in pastry and baked.
These are a quick and easy finger food; filo triangles are filled with a spinach and ricotta then baked in an oven. They have Greek origins as a 'Spanakopita' where feta is used in lieu of ricotta cheese.
