This is even great for brunch. More bite sized party appetizers or brunch recipes I love are Instant Pot Deviled Eggs, Smoked Salmon Pinwheels, and Cauliflower Rice Balls.

Delicious and simple to make. You can make the filling a day ahead then assemble and bake right before serving. The shells can be found in the freezer section, and now they make them already baked.

  1. Made these to bring to NYE dinner. Went over really well even at room temp. Very easy to make, although a lot more than 10 minutes of prep. 

    I was able to find the shells at my local grocery store. In the past I have gotten them at Whole Foods. 

  2. Can you use fresh spinach instead of frozen?

  3. Easy to make, and SO delicious !! Made for a luncheon as an appetizer.

  4. Can the mix be frozen once combined? I made them for Thanksgiving but tripled the recipe and I have a lot left over.

  6. Wow ! Thank you so much. I couldn't find the cups so uses 4 layers of filo in a small cupcake tin. Is there a way to calculate the difference using sheets cut up instead of the cups? I love the filling but have no idea how to track points this way. Please help!

  7. These look awesome! I LOOOOOVE spanakopita! This is totally approved of by my half Greek side, LOL!

  8. Always looking for appetizers and cute small dishes to bring to pot lucks. Thanks for posting 🙂

  9. @Jen, I got my filo cups in either Vons or Albertsons. They are the two stores I shop at.

  10. I made these for my weight watcher group meeting yesterday. Everyone loved them and asked for the recipe! They are simple to make, pretty to look at and delicious to eat.

  11. I live in Los Angeles, and for the life of me, I cannot find those cute little shells anywhere. Anyone have any idea? I searched all the stores that according to Athens they should be carried and came up empty handed. They are located in the freezer section, correct? Any help you call can provide would be amazing. Thank you!!

  12. I need to try these – I love spinach! These are the perfect holiday party app. 🙂

  13. I would also like to know if these can be frozen before or after baking.

  14. Love this fun spin on spanakopita…we love feta and spinach, and the kids will love the tiny pies!

  15. I really like your recipes, I really want to try this one but can't stand feta cheese too much, any sub you can recommend?

  16. Yummy! Those look delish! Totally bringing these to my Hanukkah party this weekend!

  17. Can they be filled and frozen before cooking?

  18. Can this recipe be converted into a larger spinach pie instead of minis? If so, how? Thanks!

  19. How do you calculate your nutritional analysis? Is there an app or software? These look yummy!

  20. They look so good!

  21. I don't care for dill. What could I substitute or should I just leave it out?

  22. Can you use fresh spinach instead of frozen?

  23. I would love to try this mixture on a pizza – my mouth is watering now 🙂

  24. Some of my family's favorite favorite flavors. Can't wait to try!

  25. I always see those mini phyllo shells in stores and think they're so cute but never know what to do with them besides make petite desserts. I like this savory recipe! Yum!

  26. The perfect bite sized appetizer!!

  27. That cheesy spinach filling looks delicious, especially in contrast to the crisp fillo shells. I'm always on the lookout for easy party appetizers and I'm definitely saving this recipe!

  28. One of my colleagues was talking about this spanakopita her flatmate had made the other week, and it had me drooling! This looks like a perfect quickfix 😀 x

  29. Oh how I love fillo dough! These look soooo tasty!!
