I was in charge of the faculty meeting treats, and I wanted to do something a little different. I have always loved Spanakopita since I did a project in college on Greek cooking. This was a hit!

How to Make Spanakopita Bites

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Heat 1 Tablespoon of oil in a small skillet. Saute onions, both white and green, until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, mix spinach, cottage cheese, cream cheese, Parmesan cheese, seasonings, and egg in a medium bowl. Add cooked onions. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  4. Grease mini-muffin pans with melted butter.
  5. When working with phyllo dough, keep a damp towel on hand to keep it from drying out when you aren’t working with it. Remove phyllo from package and stack up. Carefully cut dough into squares. Place 3-4 squares of phyllo into each mini cup, shaping gently into a cup. Carefully brush wells with butter, repeat with remaining dough.
  6. Place a heaping teaspoon into each well, filling the cup. Bake in a preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan. Serve.
