8 phyllo pastry recipes to try
1. Baby spinach cheesy phyllo triangles
Did you try the Tiropitakia super-snacks, already? They have a super-delicious crunchy and buttery crust thanks to the oil-coated, baked phyllo pastry. The filling has two types of cheese and, also, veggies. So, cheesiness is perfectly teamed up with fresh and savory greens.
2. Lemon Phyllo Cake Topped with Greek Yogurt
Phyllo pastry bathed in cinnamon syrup is one of the tastiest sweet dishes out there. Pair the sugar sweetness with lively lemon zest and lemon juice sourness. Bring even more freshness with Greek yogurt into the casserole mixture and when serving it, too.
3. Mushroom, Egg, and Leek Phyllo Pie
It’s been some time since we’ve last prepared a hearty phyllo pastry savory pie, so let’s fix that. We used a lot of mushrooms paired with leeks for this one. We put in boiled eggs and some cheese and wrapped everything with phyllo sheets. So, creamy and crunchy, everyone! Don’t overeat, though!
4. Pear and Walnut Phyllo Pockets
These pear-stuffed buttery phyllo pastry pockets are really hard to turn down. And that’s mainly thanks to their crushed walnut and soft pear filling. Enhance the flavor with cinnamon, amaretto, and basil. Then bake. They are just as yummy if served warm or cold.
5. Yogurt Raisin Phyllo Pie
Let’s transform some thin layers of phyllo pastry into something sweet, delicious and flaky. For that, layer vegetable oil-coated phyllo sheets and a creamy egg and yogurt mixture flavored with orange and lemon zest. Oh, and if you ever hear the names “Flies’ graveyard” or “Flies cemetery” it’s about the raisins sprinkled between the layers.
6. Chocolate and Raspberry Phyllo Cups
Let’s make these bites with the ever-irresistible phyllo pastry crust. It is flaky, buttery, and yummy. The extra-sweet and delicious filling is made with the melted chocolate and the raspberry jam. Top with refreshing raspberries. Once you’ve made this recipe you can fill the cups with anything that goes through your mind next time!
7. Cheese and Ham Phyllo Rolls Casserole
This casserole is seriously yummy stuff. Hearty comfort food that is deliciously cheesy from the melting Gruyere and feta. The ham is a welcomed addition. Also, the nutmeg and thyme flavoring. And as always, the crispy phyllo pastry makes everything extra-tasty.
