These bite-sized spinach pies are a fun twist on one of my favorite Greek dishes, Spanakopita. These are great appetizers for the Holidays, football games, or anytime you get together with friends and family.

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

    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!

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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!!

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

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

  10. 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?

    1. Did you ever get an answer for what to substitute for feta cheese in the mini appetizers? I don't care for feta either. thanks!

    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!

    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!

    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
