Why You’ll Love Feta Phyllo Bites

These are the most perfect appetizer. They are so good… crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside. The pistachio brings in that nutty taste and it is epic! The honey adds the best flavor. I made these for a dinner party and my friends and family LOVED.

How To Prepare Feta Phyllo Bites

🌟 First, fold the phyllo in half lengthwise and then cut. Then, roll the half back up in the plastic it comes in and store for later use.

🧈 Secondly, add some melted butter in between a couple of the phyllo sheets. I did about 2-3 tbsp of melted butter.

❀️ Spread the fig jam onto the phyllo, add the pistachio, chives, chipotle powder, salt and pepper.

πŸ§€ Then, add the feta rectangles at the edge of the phyllo sheets along the wider side of the sheets and roll it up really tightly.

πŸ”ͺ Slice into 12 rounds with a sharp knife.

✨ Then, add 1/2 tbsp of butter to the bottom of a 12 muffin tin.

πŸ’• Add the phyllo bites onto the muffin tin and add 1/2 tbsp butter on top of each one.

πŸ”₯ Bake at 400F for 20-25 minutes or until golden.

🍯 Lastly, drizzle honey while hot. Then, top with more honey!

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can use queso fresco instead of feta.
  2. I topped mine with chives, but you can easily swap for your favorite herbs or leave it without.

Chef Nadia’s Tip

Drizzle honey on the bites while they are still hot, so they absorb it better.
