Great to hand around at parties or as a meal with salad on the side.

Ingredients (makes 30 )

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion finely diced
  • 315g frozen spinach, thawed, drained, chopped and squeezed dry
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 100g feta cheese crumbled
  • 125g cottage cheese
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 1 packet filo pastry
  • 280g unsalted butter melted


  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan, add onion and cook until tender. Add spinach and salt and when all liquid has evaporated from spinach, stir in feta, cottage cheese and egg. Cook and stir until thick about 5 to 7 mins. Reduce heat to low simmer.
  2. Unroll filo pastry sheets keeping a damp tea towel over the sheets while you work. Lay out a sheet and brush with butter. Cut into strips approximately 12cm wide and layer the strips one on top of another so you have a strip that is 3 sheets thick.
  3. Place 1 tablespoon of the onion, spinach and feta mixture at one end of the filo pastry strip and fold the end over the filling so it forms a triangle. Continue folding until you have a small stuffed triangle and brush with unsalted butter.
  4. Place stuffed triangles on a large baking tray and bake for 15 minutes or until crisp and golden.

  • My MIL used to make these for all her family every Saturday morning and they were all gone by lunch time. The Maltese call this dish Pastisti and they can be bought if you find a shop selling Borgs goods – not quite but nearly what MIL made without all the effort. But thanks for the recipe and recapturing my memories.


  • Oooo these look good! I’ve tried packaged ones but would be great to make my own!!


  • Will be making these for the kids lunchboxes for sure


  • I love this recipe. It’s so simple and healthy at the same time


  • I love these as a lunch or snack item. I tend to buy the frozen version from Coles and had not considered how easy to make myself.


  • These look nice. Sometimes I make a dairy free type version with dairy free feta and cheese substituted in.

    • Yes I do so too, my youngest has a diary intolerance and it’s nice if she can join with the goodness that comes on the table ;)


  • This is always a success at our house !


  • Technique is key here, I know i’d screw this up but I’ll give it a go


  • Great party nibbles!
