Sure these spanakopita triangles were designed as the classic 80's cocktail party finger food but why let adults steal all the fun?
These tasty little spinach & feta treats are fun to make with your kids and their little triangle shapes pack well for lunch. Kids love the crisp buttery crunch of the phyllo dough so much that they forget they are eating spinach & feta.
I used this recipe from epicurious but added a sauteed leek to the spinach feta mixture for flavor and texture. Since I was packing these spanakopita for lunch I baked mine extra crispy and used a minimal amount of butter so that they were not oily. I made a quick dipping sauce of yogurt, chopped dill, lemon and honey. I think my son would have rather I left the dill out, maybe just honey & lemon for the kids.
So when your kids are 'hungry like the wolf' let them party on at the playground with the classic spinach triangle.
