Feta Filo cakes

The weather is getting summery again so it’s time for some light salads and Mediterranean dishes. This Greek inspired dish is using filo pastry as a case for the Feta filling. It’s easy to make and delicious with a green salad.

Filo pastry
150g Feta cheese
150g Philadelphia
3 eggs
30g butter
25g pine nuts
1 tbsp olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Method

  1. Preheat the oven at 200C
  2. Place the eggs, Feta, Philadelphia or cream cheese, olive oil and salt and pepper in the TM bowl. Mix 15 sec/speed 6.
  3. Add the pine nuts and mix 5 sec/speed 3.
  4. Melt the butter (in the microwave or in a saucepan on the stove).
  5. Butter a muffin tray(I used a silicone muffins sheet)
  6. Take out a sheet of filo pastry and brush it with some melted butter. Cut out bands of filo the width of 1 muffin case.
  7. Line each muffin with the bands of filo, changing the angle with each band to fill the whole muffin case.
  8. Do the same with the remaining filo pastry and muffin cases.
  9. Pour the content of the TM bowl in each muffin until filled almost to the top.
  10. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  11. Serve hot or warm with a salad and extra Feta.
