  • 2 tbsp Extra Spicy Seasoning Blend
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 20 sheets (18 x 14 inch) phyllo dough, defrosted
  • 10 oz package frozen spinach, thawed, drained and squeezed dry
  • 15 oz can pear halves or slices, drained and chopped


  1. In small bowl, combine feta, spinach and pears; mix until well blended.
  2. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. In small bowl, combine butter and Extra Spicy Seasoning Blend; mix until blended.
  4. Keep warm.
  5. Working quickly, open one phyllo sheet on flat surface; brush lightly with butter mixture.
  6. Layer and butter three additional sheets (stir butter mixture to ensure spices are evenly mixed); cut lengthwise into eight strips.
  7. Using rounded teaspoonfuls, place filling 1 inch from end of each strip.
  8. Fold one corner at end of strip diagonally across filling to form a triangle.
  9. Continue folding over filled portion to reach opposite end of phyllo strip to form a multilayered triangle.
  10. Place triangles seam side down, 1 inch apart, on ungreased baking sheet; brush tops lightly with additional butter mixture.
  11. Repeat four more times with remaining phyllo dough and filling.
  12. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  13. Remove from pans; serve immediately.
  14. Tip: Phyllo dough dries quickly when exposed to air; do not remove from package until ready to assemble.
  15. After removing, cover immediately with plastic wrap and damp towel until ready to form.
  16. Triangles can be prepared ahead and frozen for up to two weeks.
  17. Form triangles as directed.
  18. Do not butter formed triangles.
  19. Place triangles in VacuSeal Bag in single layer; seal and freeze.
  20. To bake, remove frozen triangles from bag and place directly on ungreased baking sheet.
