Recipe by Pesto lover

I serve these full size for breakfast, and in a smaller size as an appetizer or snack. You can find frozen 5x5 puff pastry sheets in an Armenian, middle eastern or Greek market.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Defrost spinach and squeeze all liquid out.
  2. Put cheeses, onion, eggs, cumin, nutmeg, and pepper in the food processor. Pulse till well mixed.
  3. Add spinach and pulse a few times.
  4. Cut puff pastry into 5x5 squares for a large breakfast or meal-size serving. For appetizer or snack, cut puff pastry into.
  5. 2 1/2x5 inch strips.
  6. Fill each square with approximately 2 tbsp filling in the middle. Fold pastry over to create a triangle. Pinch sides very well with your fingers, so that filling won't escape. For the smaller strips, use 1-2 tsp filling on bottom half of strip and fold strip over to make a square. Seal well.
  7. Brush each one with milk and sprinkle sesame.
  8. seeds over.
  9. Bake approximately 20 minutes on ungreased cookie sheet, or until browned & puffed up.
  10. Cool 5 minutes before serving.
