Spinach Feta Puff Pastry Bites



This was an easy appetizer to make, and easy to make for a crowd. The filling was pretty tasty and went well with the puff pastry.

This recipe is from Dave Lieberman on the Food Network website.

Ingredients:
-1 10 oz package frozen spinach
-4 oz crumbled feta cheese
-2 Tbsp cream cheese
-1 piece of puff pastry
-2 cloves garlic
-Pepper
-Nutmeg
-Flour

Roll out the dough so it is thinner than it was, about twice
as big if you can get it that big.
Mix all the other ingredients together.
Cut the pastry into squares, about 2-3 inches.
Put spoonful of filling on half the pastry.
Use water on 2 sides of the pastry so it will
stick when you fold it over onto the other side.
Bake for 15 minutes at 375. Serve warm.
This made about 20 bites. The original recipe did not have cream cheese, but when I was making the filling, it seemed like a lot of spinach and wasn't creamy enough. When I make things with feta or blue cheese, I like to add cream cheese to make the flavor a little less strong and to make things more spreadable.
Maybe because I added the cream cheese, but this made a lot more filling than I could use to fill the pastries. You could probably do 2 sheets of puff pastry with this amount of filling.
