Spinach Triangles


This weekend I decided to make a really easy and delicious recipe that can be used for snacks or h'ordervs for a party. Some of these items I always have in my freezer so it makes it easy to prepare.

Spinach Mixture
1 large tomato seeded and diced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
2 sprigs oregano

2 packages frozen spinach (10 oz packages)
2/3 cup of Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon garlic paste
2 egg yolks


Puff Pastry
1 - package store bought puff pasty (2 pepperidge farm puff pastry sheets they come 2 per package)
1 egg yolk beaten (to seal the dough)
1 egg beaten to brush on top of triangles before baking

Preheat oven to 400 Degree's

Defrost the frozen spinach. I did this in the microwave it took 8 minutes. Drain the spinach really well so your filling is not liquid.


Seed and dice the tomatoes. Mix with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and the two 2 sprigs of oregano chopped. I let this mixture sit for a little bit so everything has time to drain.


Combine the tomato's with the spinach mixture. Add a 2/3 cup of Parmesan cheese. Mix very well and taste to see if you need to add salt or pepper. Mix in the 2 egg yolks.



Roll out the puffed pastry into 3 inch squares and I used a 1/8 measuring cup to make sure all the filling was the same amount. Place filling on 1 corner of the triangle and put some egg yolk on 2 sides to help the dough stick together.

Use the Diagonal corner of the filling to pull over ,and then seal really well. I used a fork to make sure it was completely sealed.



Place on cookie sheet and beat 1 egg and brush onto the dough. Sprinkle some Parmesan on top.


Bake in over for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown. Then serve. These are best served hot.
