Cooking Oil | Shallots Frozen Spinach | Feta Cheese Shredded Parmesan Cheese Walnuts | Nutmeg Phyllo Dough Sheets Butter | Salt and Pepper OPTIONAL Tzatziki sauce | Fresh Dill
In a small skillet, sauté shallots in oil until soft, about 3 minutes. Defrost and thoroughly drain spinach. Press or squeeze to remove excess liquid. Add to shallots, stir to combine. Transfer spinach mixture to bowl; fold in cheeses and walnuts.
Add nutmeg and season with salt and pepper. Lay 1 sheet of phyllo dough flat; brush with butter. Layer a second sheet on top of the first brush with butter. Cut the sheets lengthwise into 3-inch-wide-strips.
Spoon spinach mixture onto the end of one strip and fold over to form a triangle. Continue folding in a triangular shape to form a triangular pocket. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
Set the pockets on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400˚ until golden brown, about 15 mins. Serve hot.
